Helping the environment at school can be as simple as what you take for lunch.
Try packing a waste free lunch to eliminate wrappers, plastic, and other things that only wind up in the trash. To do this, you’ll want to buy your food in bulk and put it in reusable containers to carry to school. Not only does it save waste, it saves you money because you’re not paying for individual wrappers to open and throw away.
Another thing you can do is use the school’s silverware instead of plastic ware from home. This will definitely save costs and reduce the amount of trash for your school. Washing reusable containers and silverware is almost always a better idea than buying disposables.
