Why pack a waste free lunch?
In our waste-filled lives, it’s important to do what we can to decrease the waste we’re contributing to the landfill. More and more schools are getting in on the act and requiring parents pack a waste free lunch some days of the week, if not all of them. What does this mean exactly?
Waste free means only packing items that can be composted or recycled and that won’t end up in the garbage bin. That means, no plastic wrap, no foil, no zip lock bags and no packaged foods.
