I love a good sandwich.
Turkey and cheese on wheat? Yes, please. My love of sandwiches along with a personal goal to bring my own lunch at least four out of five days makes our latest batch of lunch containers an essential part of my daily routine.
In addition to the nutritional benefits of packing a healthy lunch, cutting back on take-out containers and disposable storage containers is an eco-savvy way to live. If you’re considering launching an effort to promote sustainability and reduct unnecessary waste, consider distributing lunch kits to your employees or clients.
Here are a few of my personal favorites:
1. BUILT Sandwich Bag
This reusable polyester bag cuts down on waste while providing a cute and colorful home for your sammie. Composed of food-safe materials, the BUILT Sandwich Bag is also dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.
2. Lunch Pod
With two large food compartments, sleek handles and side snap locks to keep everything stacked neatly, The Lunch Pod is a trendy way to tote your lunch and day’s snacks.
3. 3 Piece Salad Shaker Set
Roomy enough for 4 cups of your favorite salad, the Salad Shaker has quickly become an office favorite. Easy to transport and easy to use, this affordable piece is always well received.
4. Cool Gear Deluxe Cereal Kit
Keep your cereal crunchy and your milk icy cold with the Cool Gear Deluxe Cereal Kit. I like cereal just about as much as I like a sandwich. This handy kit allows me to easily bring a perfectly portioned serving of cereal and milk to the office.
5. 3 Piece Plastic Cutlery Set
Easy to transport and easy to clean, the 3 Piece Plastic Cutlery Set is a must for every lunch bag. Cut back on the use of disposable cutlery and save money and landfill space.
With a lot of pressure on schools, students and parents to move toward sustainable packaging and away from traditional brown bags and plastic zip top bags, items like these are becoming more and more prevalent in the school cafeteria and office break room.
Consider giving reusable sandwich bags or lunch kits a try for your next promotion. Just in time for back-to-school, this could be a timely and unique way to drive home a nutrition campaign while also boosting your eco initiatives.
