Aluminum foil is easier to recycle than plastic sandwich bags. In most cases, those sandwich bags get thrown into garbage and end up in a landfill. For those of us who are diligent with cleaning and reusing plastic sandwich bags: Bravo! Once you are done with them, be sure to bring them to a plastic-film recycling drop-off at your local supermarket.

    I use reusable containers. Of I use foil I clean and reuse.

    I use a reuseable container whenever possible and toss it into the dishwasher. Many times the same container can hold the sandwich, plus a few cut veggies, etc. rather than packing each lunch item separately.

    I use parchment paper - I assume that would be better that than either above - Any thoughts?
