Green Lunchboxes

Posted on

If you pack lunch everyday, it might be time to invest in a few quality items that will easily pay for themselves before too long. Instead of the endless need for ziplock bags, paper bags, saran wrap and foil – we have a few lunchbox hacks just for you. These are excellent for school lunches, but they aren’t just for kids!

First, get yourself a freezable lunch bag like this. When your food is either hot or cold, you’re much more likely to eat it. Use small containers like these ridiculously good value containers from Ikea . Now you have all kinds of reusable containers that will eliminate your need to go through so many disposable bags.

For hot lunches like soups, rice dishes and noodles, you can’t go past a good old Thermos food jar . These things are sanity-savers when you can’t bear to eat another sandwich or salad.

If you regularly buy your coffee in a paper cup, think again. By making your morning brew in a travel mug, you can bring it with you to Starbucks for coffee two (…or three) later in the day. Bringing your own mug saves both a paper cup, and gives you a discount on your coffee price. Try the Contigo Autoseal or Stanley SS Adventure Pack Mug  for durable, well sealed, backpack-approved mugs. Just throw your coffee in your bag and go!

By making these small investments, you’re making a huge impact in the consumerism problems that we face in the USA. It’s so worth it.
