One of my favorite back to school must haves are containers from Kids Konserve.  Check back soon for a full review on this awesome line and how you can win in our giveaway! In the meantime, consider how our daily food intake in this country impacts our environment! Kids Konserve is helping my family produce less waste when we eat and my kids are encouraged to pack their own healthy lunches too!

Lunch Waste

 

FACTS

On average, a school-age child using a disposable lunch generates 67 pounds of lunch waste per school year (18,760 pounds of lunch waste per elementary school).

A waste-free lunch saves on average $216 per child per year (versus a disposable lunch).

The North Pacific Garbage Patch, the largest of the five gyres, is twice the size of Texas and contains about 3.5 million tons of trash

Packaging accounts for nearly 32 percent of all household waste in the U.S. Americans discard 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour.

40 billion plastic utensils are used every year in the U.S. Americans use 500 million plastic straws every day. Placed end to end, the number of disposable straws used in the U.S. in the past 4 days could reach the moon.

About 23 billion coated paper or Styrofoam coffee cups end up in landfills every year. Placed end to end, they could circle the earth 68 times.

Every year Americans throw away 100 billion plastic bags. The average American family takes home almost 1,500 plastic shopping bags a year, that's more than 4 bags a day.


Think about this for a minute...consider using a great alternative like Kids Konserve! Stay tuned for a review and giveaway!
