Go back to school ecologically with a zero-waste lunch!

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.

What is a zero-waste lunch?

zero-waste lunch

 

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.

 

 

 

The consequences of individual packaging

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.

 

To reduce your impact at lunchtime, here are some solutions:

  • Evaluate your food needs to avoid unnecessary food waste;
  • Invest in the right reusable containers (thermos, Tupperware, beverage containers, etc.);
  • Purchase bulk ingredients that you can put in reusable containers. You will avoid excess packaging at the same time;
  • Avoid disposable items and utensils and opt for reusable items (containers, utensils, lunch bag, etc.);
  • Fruits and vegetables are great options. They are compostable and require little packaging to transport them;
  • Be sure to recycle disposable containers, such as water bottles (still better to use a reusable bottle), juice containers, etc. as much as possible.

 

You now have everything you need for a reusable lunchbox. All you have to do is fill it!

To your lunch box!
