As homeschoolers we take our lunches out with us A LOT. I'm not sure I would have guessed that prior to homeschooling. In fact, I seem to remember being thrilled at the thought of NOT having to pack lunches.
But a lunch packed away is always unpacked somewhere wonderful. It means a nature class, writing circle, a picnic or park day.
Over the last ten years we've replaced almost all of our need for plastic with glass. Sending glass to tromp in the woods or with a six year old who loves to spin with her belongings in hand isn't wise though . . . and so my most favorite way to send lunches is in bento type tins.
Clasped together or alone, they keep things warm or cold, don't leak, and have taken many a fall without a dent, ding, or spill.
Lately, friends and onlookers have asked me about our containers. I do love them. I'd never go back to plastic. We use cloth bags too. Those I make. Honestly, with a little bit of money and a little bit of time, switching to reusable is easy, and in the long run, not having to buy sandwich bags or replace the plastic containers that don't hold up and are easily lost, is a huge savings.
I'm thinking we might need some of these for our many upcoming campouts, I'd like to try their glass straws, and these you can never have enough of! Not sure about you, but kitchen stuff is my kind of shopping.
Good things to make life a little easier and the Earth a little cleaner.
