Pack a Litter-free School Lunch

By JulieVR |

These days, many schools require (or at least request) students pack a litter-free lunch, minimizing the amount of trash that must be picked up and transported to either recycling centres or the local landfill. When hundreds of kids a day bring lunch and snacks wrapped in plastic or foil, and plenty of wrappered and packaged foods, it can add up to a big pile of garbage. Here are some ways to cut back on the waste in your kids’ daily school meal.

This stainless steel version
(available at Pottery Barn Kids) will last the whole school year - pack anything in its compartments, and toss it in the dishwasher at the end of the day.
