The New Year marks changes and goals for many people and most of those include making healthy lifestyle changes. Whether you're adding more exercise, healthy eating habits or small changes to your lifestyle we all have one goal in mind – to feel our best. Cheyenne's 3rd grade class started a new challenge this year to reduce their waste in the classroom and one thing they're focusing on is lunches. It is surprising how much garbage is packed in a lunch box!
In their classroom they have a compost bin and recycling to try and cut down on their daily waste and keep some trash out of the garbage dump. Every week they measure their collective garbage amounts and try to think of ways they can reduce it next week. I think this is inspiring and a great tool the kids can take with them as they grow. They also involve the parents since most of us are the ones packing the lunches.
We found an easy way to reduce garbage in the lunchbox is to use the Rubbermaid LunchBlox. The LunchBlox make packing lunch simple with their easy to open reusable containers. Our set came with 3 different sizes including:
- Small – .5 cup/118 mL
- Medium – 1.1 cup/260 mL
- Large with two removable inserts – 4.1 cup/970 mL
Rubbermaid LunchBlox Review
The best part of the LunchBlox is the Blue Ice pack that keep the lunch chilled and fresh and is perfect for on the go! The containers all snap into the Blue Ice which helps for keeping lunch organized. A fun part of the reusable containers is you can pack healthier choices including fruits and veggies instead of packaged goods. Not only are you cutting down on waste by using the Rubbermaid LunchBlox but you're helping your kids make healthier choices too!
The Rubbermaid LunchBlox aren't just for kids adults can enjoy them too with many different configurations and packs the possibilities are endless. I like all the bright colors and portioned containers it makes lunches fun again. We give it 2 thumbs up!
Make lunch rock with LunchBlox!
