Trash-Free Tuesdays!

There is an exciting green movement happening all around us. It’s called Trash Free Tuesdays! The concept is simple. We want kids to bring lunches that don’t generate any trash. It’s a way to get us all thinking twice about how much trash we toss and a great way to save you and the school money! How about using a thermos or reusable water bottle in lieu of juice boxes or disposable water bottles? Forget the Ziploc bags. Buy things like raisins,pretzels, and yogurt in bulk instead of individually wrapped packages and send them to school in a reusable Tupperware or Glad container. Send your child with a cloth napkin as opposed to a paper napkin and silverware that can be washed and reused. And don’t stop at Tuesdays, challenge yourself to pack a trash-free lunch for your child everyday of the week!
