It is estimated that each American child produces 67 pounds of lunch packaging waste each school year. That’s a big ‘F’ in my report card! This year, when school starts, make sure that your kids are lunch box smart!

There is no longer a need for plastic sandwich bags, paper bags and juice boxes. There are tons of green lunch box options out there and a lot of them are super cute too! Here’s my eco lunch box lowdown:

1. Forgo the brown paper bag and invest in a durable lunch box or bento-style lunch container.   

2. Go reuseable! Reusable sandwich bags and containers are super sturdy and easy to use, clean and store. If you have to pack a plastic bag, try to reuse it or recycle it!
