|Most school-aged children who bring lunches carry them in disposable brown bags and plastic baggies. Each of these children will generate 67 pounds of waste by the end of the school year. That's 18,760 pounds of lunch waste for an average-sized school! With a reusable lunch kit like the Laptop Lunches Bento Box System, you'll be doing your part to prevent unnecessary waste and pollution.
Between 1960 and 2007 the amount of waste each person creates has almost doubled from 2.7 to 4.6 pounds per day. The most effective way to stop this trend is by preventing waste in the first place.
