Let’s start with the facts: The average school aged child generates an estimated 67 pounds of lunchbox waste per year. With on average 25 million children carrying lunch to school daily, that means 3.5 billion pounds of lunchbox garbage is generated each year in America.
We can shake the waste cycle! Mimi the Sardine has teamed up with Bay Area neighbors Fabkins and LunchBots to make the ultimate waste-free lunchkit, helping you keep paper napkins, plastic bags, and single-serving foods out of our oceans and landfills. Our kits include a lunchbug, 2 Fabkins napkins (organic cotton), and 2 stainless steel LunchBots (snack and sandwich sizes). This little kit is lightweight and features the eco-friendly lunch alternatives leading brands, and you save 25% by buying them as a kit! Find them here.
