Save $435 a Year Using Reusable Lunchware!

That is a lot of waste; both in trash created and money wasted! ECOlunchbox did a study in 2009, that calculated the savings for a family that had two kids and one adult packing lunch five times a week; the results are a real eye-opener.

We made the switch to reusable about a year ago and couldn't be happier. We save a ton of money on expensive juice boxes and ziploc bags, and I feel so much better about not creating the waste that we used to. There are a load of reusable options, and ECOlunchbox makes some really great ones. They have a "soup-to-nuts" lunchware line that includes super cute bentos, sandwich boxes, snack containers, lunchbags and more, all of which are plastic-free and waste-free and that help you and your family avoid health risks associated with vinyl, plastic, lead and aluminum.
