Pack a "Zero Waste" Lunch

The average American school-age child throws away 67 pounds of packaging a year, including plastic water bottles, sandwich baggies, molded food containers, and juice boxes. Cut down on your kids' lunchtime impact by packing sandwiches, fruits, veggies and treats in reusable lunch containers, and pack those in a reusable lunch bag or tote. Plastic baggies can also be washed and reused. (Think about this when you pack your own lunch as well.)
