One minute of convenience can have an untold negative impact on our landfills when it comes to disposable plastic utensils and paper goods.
When packing your lunch for work, or for your kids’ school lunches, take the time to pack washable plates and utensils in a re-usable lunch bag.
Most disposable utensils and food containers are not recyclable and end up in landfills.
Also, if you frequent a cafeteria at your place of business, your school or university, cafeterias often provide either “to-go” packaging or “eat-in” plates and trays. Take the time to plan ahead so you can eat your lunch on-site. It will not only minimize your contribution to our landfills, it will also make for a more relaxed meal and hopefully a better day.
