This week’s “Back to School” tip: Pack A Lunch In A Real Lunchbox!
Save the paper and plastic bags too, by using reusable containers and little thermoses for hot food.
Mary Ellen Mallia of UAlbany says: “I have always used lunchboxes but got in the habit of using ‘disposable’ baggies for sandwiches, snacks, etc. I have now purchased small reusable containers and even one made especially for sandwiches for my lunch and my daughter’s. I feel it not only helps me practice what I preach about conservation of resources but sets a model for my daughter.”
