Plastic is one of the biggest causes of pollution in the world, it can take up to 1000 years to break down. Opting for other materials when packing your kids lunchbox is much easier than you think, and it will reduce food waste and help the future of our planet immensely.
Below are some tips from Thinc Eco, a sustainable brand that produces reusable products made from resourceful materials such as bamboo, wheat and organic cotton.
Use your own containers
If you’re someone who is still using plastic containers to store food, with so many eco alternatives it’s a great time to ditch plastic. A great alternative to plastic, is bamboo. Did you know that bamboo is an extremely sustainable material and has antifungal properties. Biodegradable Bamboo Lunchboxes, are the perfect carrier kids lunches on and they are also safe any chemicals, a lot of plastics carry.
Cut out packaged snacks
I know it can be the easiest option to grab a packet of chips for your kids lunch however, try making a conscious decision when buying drinks or packaged snacks. A lot of them are packaged in plastic that we don’t need. Instead buy snacks from your bulk food store or try making your own, this won’t only help the future of our planet but will also help you save a ton of money and is much healthier.
Stop using Plastic Ziplock Bags
When packing your lunch, instead of using plastic ziplock bags, a great alternative are Reusable Silicone Ziplock Bags, made from BPA Food Grade Silicone. They are extremely durable, are microwave safe, and a great way to store snacks on the go, keeping your food fresh and free from any chemicals plastic carry. Replacing one-use plastic bags, with these will cut down plastic waste massively. We also love making popcorn using these miracle bags using corn kernels, butter and salt in the bags, closing them up and placing them in the microwave.
