Litterless Lunch Options

It is important to make sure we are doing what we can to keep our planet clean so we can continue to enjoy it as well as future generations to come. Schools are doing their part in this by requesting students to bring litterless lunches. Read on to see some great options to get you started.

Planet Box

If you follow mommy groups on facebook, you will come across conversations about Planet Box or Bento Boxes. These boxes are great space savers and come in different sizes. You will find that you may become inspired to send your kids a more "artistic" lunch. It will also help make lunch a little more fun and maybe you will have less food come home too;)


Beeswax Wraps

Beeswax wraps are gaining popularity as an alternative to plastic wrap and bags. Beeswax wraps are reusable and easy to clean making them a new family friendly item.


Reusable Straws

You will find more and more restaurants are no longer offering plastic straws for their drinks. Some have switched to paper straws and I've even heard of some that are no longer offering straws at all. Send your littles to school with their own reusable straw so milk days go a little less messy.


Reusable Water Bottles

When it comes to reusable water bottles, there are so many to choose from. You may want to try a few to see which your kids will prefer to have and also keep in mind to make sure they are spill proof so they don't have soggy lunches. These bottles are available in glass, stainless steel and BPA free plastic.


Some other great options to look into include:

Cloth Snack Pouches

Bamboo Cutlery

Snack Boxes

Stainless Steel Cutlery

Reusable Chop Sticks

Sandwich Boxes

Silicone Sandwich Bags
