Simple Ways to Increase Sustainability at Work
This month's tip is: Pack Zero Waste Lunches
The best way to eat green, and also healthy, at work, is by packing your lunch in reusable containers. The typical waste-free lunch can include: sandwiches and other main dishes, fresh fruits and vegetables, and treats packed in a reusable container(s), cloth napkins, stainless-steel utensils, and reusable drink containers.
Delivery and takeout can create miniature mountains of packaging waste. However, if delivery/takeout is a must, try placing bulk orders with your co-workers, as this usually amounts to less waste. Whether packing your lunch or ordering out, consider the use of reusable plates, bowls, utensils, and napkins.
For ideas on how to create or purchase your own zero-waste lunch kit, try Googling: zero-waste, waste-free, eco-, and/or sustainable lunch kits or boxes.
Create positive change for the environment that you can taste!
