Packing a No-waste Lunch



My daughter's school has no-waste lunches every Thursday. That means nothing that goes to school in their lunch should be disposable or thrown into the garbage.

This also translates into a harder lunch-packing day if you are used to relying on pre-packaged snacks or plastic baggies.

I pretty much just adapt my usual kindergarten lunches, putting everything into the amazing Ball Plastic Freezer Jars: sandwiches, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, trail mix as a snack...


If she is successful in her no-waste lunch (which means I did it correctly) she gets a sticker. 5 stickers and you get a prize. 

My daughter acquired those stickers as fast as she could, got her prize, and thankfully is constant reminder to me every Thursday:)

That's cool that they are getting the kids to think about their impact on the environment at a young age. I've been using those fabric reuseable snack baggies found on Amazon. for my kids lunches. they are great! Love that your daughter gets stickers and a prize.

Thanks to you I am kind of obsessed with the plastic ball jars. We use them all the time :)

i found a lidded, divided tray (for leftovers) at walmart and it fits inside my daughter's lunch box perfectly! no more baggies! but, i would love to know what kind of bottle you're using for her drinks and do you ever have trouble with it leaking? thanks!

What a fantastic idea! I also have a slight addiction to the plastic and glass Ball jars!

That's a great idea for a school to take on. You can save SO much waste just once a day. So smart!

What a fun idea! My daughter's school has big recycling competitions, but I've never heard of this. I'll have to pass it on to the powers that be :)
