Is it lunchtime yet? I feel like I am asking myself this everyday around 10:30 am! My husband and I both work 30 minutes away from home, so I pack both my lunch and my husbands lunch everyday. I feel there is no sense in wasting money on going out to lunch (lets save that for yummy dinners out!). I make an effort not to create waste in our lunches, so we both carry reusable lunchbox/coolers, and my husbands sandwich is always in a reusable, plastic (Preserve Containers – BPA free & made from recycled plastics in the USA!) container. I eat yogurt everyday, I try to switch it up and eat regular yogurt one day and greek the next, and lets face it, its easier to buy the individual yogurts than the big containers you have to measure out (although I do this every now-and-then). Everyday I make sure to rinse out my yogurt container and re-pack it in my lunchbox to bring home and recycle. This also goes for any pop cans/bottles I have, soup cans, fruit containers, etc.
Do you try to pack a “Green” lunch? What other efforts do you make during the day to recycle?
