ECOlunchbox Tips to Go Green to Save Green
Would you like to save hundreds of dollars for your family every year and avert thousands of pieces of trash?
The results of a study by ECOlunchbox show that a typical family wastes about $400 on throw-aways – and creates approximately 4,320 pieces of garbage at lunchtime unnecessarily every year.
“We know green lunches are healthy for people and the planet, but the results of our study strongly show that our pocketbooks are big winners, too,” says Sandra Harris, president and founder of ECOlunchbox.
ECOlunchbox calculates that a typical family with two children and one parent packing lunches uses about 9 plastic baggies daily (sandwich and two sides per person) at a cost of roughly 6 cents per Ziploc baggie, adding up to 54 cents spent daily on plastic baggies. That adds up to about $11 monthly and $132 annually. Other “lunch math” to consider is the extra cost of paper napkins, disposable utensils and pre-packaged foods.
ECOlunchbox offers an eco-friendly lunchware line in a variety of sizes to ensure a complete, plastic-free, lunch-time solution. Pack snacks in the purse-sized ECOlunchpod; a perfect replacement for disposable plastic baggies. The ruggedly durable, single-compartment Solo Rectangle packs enough food to satisfy any lunchtime craving. While the crowd-favored ECOlunchbox Three-in-One elegantly separates food into two layers. It even comes with its very own ECOlunchpod which can either be tucked into the top layer or used on its own. How versatile!
Go green at lunchtime and your pocket book will thank you!
