Invest in a large reusable container
A container that is durable can be used for years to come instead of one-use plastic bags and styrofoam containers. Though glass is nice and sturdy, try avoiding it since it can break easily if dropped.
Pack a cloth napkin and silverware
Make an easy bundle by tying your utensils in the napkin! This keeps them clean and easy to find/transport.
This might sound like the opposite of zero-waste, but hear us out. By packing an extra apple or banana, you don't run the risk of an afternoon hunger resulting in a vending machine snack. If you don't end up eating it, just save it for later or the next day!
Save the scraps
Remember the reusable container in step 1? After lunch, you can fill it with any leftover food scraps, like crumbs or apple cores, to compost later.
And that's it! Easy right? These tips can go beyond lunchtime too - this pack is perfect for traveling, hiking and plenty of other situations!
