Eco-Friendly Friday: A Message From and a WINNER!

There are a lot of reasons why I agreed to be an Ambassador for this fabulous company, and this is just one of them...

A Back-to-School Message From

As part of our commitment to give back, we’ve decided to donate $500 worth of waste-free lunch gear to a class or school in need. We’ve left it in the hands of our blog readers and Facebook fans to tell us who they think we should donate to. Please check out our blog post for more.

Each year, when back–to-school approaches, it’s easy to ignore our massive addiction to "convenient" lunch products. This is the perfect time to point out that convenience has enormous health, environmental and financial costs. Here’s a staggering statistic: close to 2.7 billion juice boxes end up in landfills every year. (Container Recycling Institute)
Since 2003, we’ve championed a movement to reduce consumption of use-and-toss items and provide our customers with smart tools and solutions. If you’re looking for facts, tips and information on why packing waste-free lunches make so much sense, read our article on Waste-Free lunches, including our “5 Simple Steps” with the essential tools everybody can use.

In addition, my fellow staffers and I have selected our Top Ten Picks for Back-to-School – they range from everyday basics to some truly interesting, innovative products. Below are 4 examples. Visit to see them all.

I’m Not A Paper Bag” – $14.95 - reusable version of the classic brown paper bag with a catchy slogan. Made in the USA and out of recycled cotton.

As I said in last week's post, switching to reusables for your child's lunch makes a HUGE impact on the environment. Unfortunately, reuseables are not always cheap, and no one understands that better than That is why they offer durable products at affordable prices. And when that still isn't gives things away for FREE. This company is constantly giving back to the community and environment and this giveaway is a perfect example of that.

So, without further ado...the winner of the Reuseit Lunch Bag and Snack Bag set of their choice is...
