Light Lunch

All those juice boxes and snack packs pile up. Making lunches for school every day creates an average of 67 pounds of garbage per child--or more than 18,000 pounds per school--each year. To help stem the tide of trash, two California moms created Laptop Lunches, colorful bento-box-style containers with washable, reusable compartments for different foods. They estimate that eschewing disposable packaging and single-serving items can save families $250 a year. wastefreelunches.org
