Trashy is So Last Year.
by Maria Pilar Clark
Packing school lunches is part and parcel of the parenting process. But, for as much love that goes into making that peanut butter and jelly sandwich with the crusts cut off, an equal amount of plastic is also going into landfills.
Just think. Each child needs three plastic baggies a day, five days a week for an entire year. That’s 780 twist-tied baggies for one child. Add that number to juice boxes, paper napkins and plastic utensils, and the amount of waste really starts adding up, especially if you have more than one child brown-bagging it to school.
Mom-powered company, Citizenpip, has the same concerns about reducing environmental waste, and since no one wants to leave a legacy landfill to their children, makes it easy to go green with convenient reusable lunch kits and products that are free from lead, PVC, phthalates and BPA. Each kit comes with an insulated lunch bag, water bottle, insulated food jar, BPA-free food containers (that are also CPSIA certified), fork/spoon and napkins, making environmental responsibility easy.
