Today’s Theme: Reusable Lunch Wares
Having reusable lunch wares has lots of benefits:
- You’re greatly reducing the amount of waste going into the landfills
- You’re saving $$ (in the long run)
- Kids like the novelty of bright colors and patterns
- You’re being a positive role-model
- You get to make fashion statement!! (:
Here are some wares that we use in our house. We have a nice array, and we keep all of them with self-adhesive permanent labels so that lost pieces get back to us. Our favorite labels come from KideCals. We have tested these labels thoroughly…washer, dishwasher….they stay stuck! I find them so helpful, a little insurance policy for my daughter’s forgetfulness!!
Here are some reusable bags that we currently use. All of them have redeeming qualities and we use them all regularly. I picked these ones as they were the cheapest on Amazon at the time. I was not picky about design, I just selected the one that was the best deal!! You can also check out Etsy and eBay, they also have artisans making these!! Another company, Snack Taxi, contacted me to let me know about their product too, and their bags even have ‘Gluten Free” labels right on the sack! As an added a bonus, in celebration of Celiac Awareness Month, they are offering a 20% discount on all orders, use coupon code CELIAC20.
