Save Money, Save the Planet: Use a Lunchbox

Posted Aug 04 2009 5:38pm

Lunchboxes People continue to look for alternate ways to save money. The recent economy crisis has changed the way people manage their finances.

Personal and family expenses have been directly affected by price increases, forcing people to change habits in order to pay bills.

Most people spend a significant part of their budgets on food. Of course, you can’t stop eating but there are many to save money on food on a daily basis.

You can save a lot of money just preparing lunch at home. Some people eat out everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Try to have at least one or two meals at home, let’s say breakfast and lunch.

If you can’t go home for lunch, bring lunch with you. You may prepare meals the night before and have them ready for the next day. That’s when a lunchbox is needed.

Reusable food containers can save you money and protect the planet. Everyday thousands of pounds of plastic end up as litter in our landfills. An estimated 3.5 billion pounds of lunchbox garbage is collected every year.

Think about how much trash you normally dispose at the end of your lunch! Lunchboxes are perfect to take to school or work eliminating additional garbage, such as plastic food containers.

Most products are washable and reusable. Containers can be washed over and over in dishwashers and are generally microwave safe. Secure lids ensure that liquids can be placed in them without spilling.

Make sure to buy a lunchbox or food container that is recyclable and BPA free. It’s a great idea to protect the environment and some a lot of money as well.
