For years, I used a lot of disposable products to pack my kids’ lunches – plastic baggies, plastic wrap, plastic containers, plastic forks and spoons – they were a daily staple of our lunch-packing routine. And honestly, I really didn’t think much about it until I began to learn about the environmental impact of disposables, let alone the chemicals found in most disposable products, especially plastic baggies.
That’s when I started looking for ways to reduce waste in my kids’ lunches with safe, reusable alternatives.
Like many others, the biggest obstacle in my waste-free lunch packing journey has been the initial investment in making this healthy change … it’s true, reusable products are more expensive upfront. However, it’s important to keep in mind that reusable products last far longer, so you’ll not only recoup the initial investment, but you’ll actually save money in the long-run! That’s why reusables are truly beneficial for the environment, your family’s health, and your pocketbook.
Still … managing a tight budget is a big deal for me, and if it is for you too, I’ve got some great news … with the help of MightyNest, we can get started in reducing waste in our family’s lunches with high quality reusable lunch bags for just $5.00!
