Everything we have in our lunch came from somewhere - even the packaging for our food. Anything we don't eat, recycle, or reuse becomes garbage, and mostly ends up in a huge landfill!
Each of us throws-out about 4.5 pounds of trash each day, and about one third of that (1.4 pounds) is just containers and packaging. Think of how much we could each save from going into a landfill just by eating trash-free lunches!
Grab & go food is pretty convenient, but do you really need everything pre-packaged?
