Conserve and Preserve–One Bite at a Time!

Children's Reusable Lunch Bag Kids BPA-Free Phthalate-FreeWe love the “new again” trend of packing school lunches in reusable containers–it is a little way even small children can push back against a society addicted to disposables.  Plus, many of the containers like the ones at Kids Konserve are so eco-chic!

By using a reusable lunch kit, you reduce waste and save money.  Just imagine, no more paper bags, plastic baggies, or tin foil–I’ll bet your lunch will even taste better, knowing that you are doing your part for the earth and your household budget.

While saving green, of both the environmental and financial varieties, don’t forget to select containers that are healthy for your family, too. Kids Konserve products are non-toxic, non-leaching, BPA, PVC, phthalate, and lead-free!

According to Kids Konserve, ” the amount of trash produced by one child’s lunch alone creates 67 pounds of landfill waste in a school year!”  That’s a trash heap over twice the weight of my preschool daughter.  You can significantly limit your personal contribution to that dump by reducing your use of disposable items.

In place of sandwich baggies, use the food cozy, my favorite part of the lunch system, .  They are perfect for any sandwich, bagel, or wrap.

My daughter loves the Butterfly pattern in fuchsia and lime green and likes to carry the reusable stainless steel water bottle with her everywhere she goes.

Preschoolers may not understand all the science of environmentalism, yet, but they can easily grasp the idea of tossing less waste.  And little kids love being helpful.

These eco-chic lunch bags provide a fun opportunity to make a dent in the amount of trash we throw away–one bite at a time.

WANT IT: Waste-free lunch kits at Kids Konserve are $42-45; individual items are available a la carte. Use 15% coupon code “mamanista” (expires 4/30/10).
