Show Notes

Hey, Green Junkie!

Lunches can be riddled with green living difficulties from pre-packaged food wrappers, to vegetable and fruit peels, to water bottles and plastic containers - it can be hard to eliminate the waste that comes with our daily lunch.

So that’s what this episode is all about. Helping you get more creative without having to spend a  bunch of money. I’m sharing all the things me and my family do and tips and tricks on how you can easily have a lower waste lunch. 

Here’s what to expect:

  • Easy, green ways to store and wrap your food
  • My favorite brands for holt and cold beverages / food
  • Tips for using what you already have at home
  • A creative alternative to napkins
  • What to pack your lunch in
  • How to green-ify what goes IN your lunch box
  • Best way to reduce your household waste

You’ll discover that and so much more in this episode.

By the end of this episode, Green Junkie, you’ll be able to pack your lunches more efficiently all while creating less waste.
