So many of us waste hundreds of dollars each year sending our children to school with disposable containers, baggies, wrap, and more in their lunch boxes. Did you know, that if you switched away from using disposable lunchware such as plastic baggies and paper napkins, that you could save about $435 a year? Yep, our friends at ECOlunchbox did a study in 2009, that calculated the savings for a family that had two kids and one adult packing lunch five times a week.
Here’s a top five list of eco-friendly school supplies that make it easy to go green this Back-to-School season!
