8 Super Cute Zero Waste Lunch Ideas


So many schools are moving toward a ‘zero waste’ requirement for lunches these days. Is yours? My little girl starts preschool next week and that will be our first foray into the world of school, so I had no idea about these new requirements. I have to say though, that I rather like the idea! Inspired, I began searching for some stylish options…

Here are eight great, zero waste, lunch and snack bags that blend great style and function!
