Eco-Friendly School Lunch Essentials You Won't Throw Away

School lunches add up to big waste...both in terms of money and trash! From the good ol’ brown paper bag to all those Ziploc baggies, napkins, plastic wrap, and aluminium foil...well, it all adds up. So we’ve found four clever ways to help you cut out the excess, save money and the planet while doing it, and keep your foods safe from plastic and metal pollutants.

Waxed Canvas Lunch Bags from WAAM

WAAM Industries is offering an awesome antidote to paper bagged lunch. Dress up your midday meal in one of their durable and reusable lunch totes. Each tote is made of a durable cotton canvas, and waxed with our beeswax blend for all of your busy bees. Designs include Navy Ticking, Brown, Natural or Black.

Organic Cloth Napkins from 112 James Street

These soft organic cotton and hemp, eco-friendly, reusable, sustainable blue napkins by 112 James Street are way better than paper towels and traditional table linen – because they are handmade with love and care, and are heirloom quality, made to last, and get softer with every wash.

Reusable Sandwich and Snack Bags from Bagit Conscious

Bag the baggie! This reusable sandwich and snack set is where it’s at now. Made of 100% organic ultra-cotton knit, 100% cotton fabrics and lined with water resistant and food-safe nylon ripstop material and designed seal with Velcro, these reusable and eventually biodegradable sandwich sacks are easy to clean. All designs sport fun, playful patterns.

Bee’s Wrap Natural Plastic Wrap Alternative

This wrap should be on tap in every household. You can package up cheese, half a lemon, a crusty loaf of bread, and fruits and vegetables, cover a bowl, or pack a snack using this stuff just as effectively as the not-so-environmentally-friendly other stuff. Made with organic cotton, beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin, Bee’s Wrap is washable, reusable and compostable.
