Win Your Kid a Free Lunchbox and Save The Environment
In your child’s cafeteria, brown-bagging your lunch might be the “cool” thing to do. Unfortunately, it’s not so cool for the environment.
While packing a healthy lunch from home is the best way to avoid often-unhealthy and expensive cafeteria food, using brown paper bags can get costly and cause unnecessary waste. That’s where reusable lunchboxes come in — they help you save money and help save the environment.

Packing your kids’ lunch in reusable materials means you’re helping to cut down on the 31 tons of plastic waste that the Environmental Protection Agency estimates was created in 2010. Not to mention, having a unique reusable lunch bag can buy your kid some cafeteria cool points.
So while you back-to-school grocery shop this year, keep an eye out for products from Annie’s Homegrown, Stonyfield YoKids, Honest Kids, and Seventh Generation. They’re all giving away a free reusable lunch sack from Kids Konserve if you buy one of their products.
Products to look out for are: any Annie’s Homegrown item, Stonyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt 6-packs or Squeezers, Honest Kids Organic Drinks 8-pack carton or 64-ounce bottle, and Seventh Generation Disinfectant spray or wipes.
It’s never too early to get your kid started on environmentalism. And it all starts with lunch.
