Reading through the Happy Hippie I found an article on the No Waste Lunch – a green, healthy and money-saving alternative. Having kids in school I find it difficult sometimes to get them out the door on time with a no waste lunch. I tend to grab the quick and easy plastic baggies that you throw away. I want to be more intentional about what I send my kids to school with, keeping in mind the amount of trash that schools throw out daily and not wanting to add to it.
The basic steps as mentioned in the article are:
- Reduce the amount of disposable waste you pack
- Pack reusable products
- Recycle anything you have left over
They sound easy enough – don’t they? And yes by each of us doing our part we CAN make a difference.
