It’s back to school season. Why not take advantage of this opportunity to educate young students and their parents about an ecological school year? Here are some tips and tricks that will help you prepare a zero-waste lunch for you and your children.
An eco-friendly or zero-waste lunch is a meal where food and beverages are in reusable or recyclable containers, so that your lunch box doesn’t produce any waste. In brief, no packaging, disposable containers, bags, cans or plastic wrap. By thinking ahead, your eco-meal can save you money and keep you healthy.
As you know, our daily food-related activities often generate a lot of waste, with lunch being a very good example. Foods packaged in single servings, such as yogurt and juice bottles or even disposable utensils, have a significant impact on the environment. The cycle of manufacture and disposal of containers made of plastic, cardboard or styrofoam requires a lot of natural resources. In addition, we throw out a lot of food: one third of all the food produced in the world is wasted. That’s why it’s important to think about the waste we generate. The best waste is one that is not produced.
