Brayton’s Green Team wants to make it easy for you and your family to pack more eco-friendly lunches. We are partnering with ECOlunchbox company to support the purchase of stainless steel reusable lunch boxes and snack containers. When you buy products from their website between now and December 15th using our exclusive code (15Brayton), 15% of the sales will be donated back to Brayton. Why are stainless steel containers good for you and your family?
- Financially: It is estimated that families can save $250 per child by going zero waste.
- Health-wise: The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends avoiding plastics where possible due to chemicals that can leach into foods and impact our health, especially in children whose bodies are smaller and still developing.
- Environmental: The average US child will generate up to 67 pounds of waste each school year from their lunch.
Want more information about packing zero waste lunches? See these educational materials that Jen presented in October in partnership with Green Summit and Green Schools. It is the first talk in a series called “Sustainable Living” at the Summit Free Public Library.
The next talk is on Tuesday 11/19 at 7:30pm about minimizing waste in our kitchens.
“We don’t need a handful of people doing ‘zero waste’ perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.” ~Anne Marie Bonneau
