According to, 100,000,000,000 plastic bags are thrown away by Americans each year. That’s a lot of zeros and waste! When we pack lunches for our kids and use small plastic bags for their chips, cookies and sandwiches those bags add to the staggering number! Plastic bags are cheap and so it might seem easy to use them but why spend the money and add plastic waste to the landfills when you can cut back and use a waste free lunch system for the kiddos!
Recently I was sent the Bright Bin New Generation Lunch Box. A waste free lunch system that is very compartmentalized for an easy fit for the backpack! The company estimates that the average person uses small plastic bags each day, using the New Generation Lunch Box you can save 1000 bags a year per person! Wow!
The L’ Artiste New Generation Lunch Box was perfect for the little artist in our house! The kids could decorate the lunch box with their own designs and then wash it off and create a new design for the next day! The company tells me the product has third party testing and is lead-free, phthalate-free, PVC-free and BPA-free! An all around creative, safe and eco-friendly lunch option that my children have enjoyed and I’m sure yours would too! So stop adding to those zeros and this year commit to packing a waste free lunch!
Why not? Great tips for free!
