Thank you for reading my story of zero waste lunch success blueprint in the Dynamic Women Succes Secrets! book.
As I mentioned in my story, my switch to a waste-free lunch system was completely accidental. I only meant to survive kindergarten lunches zero waste style. That was 9 years ago! Since then we saved at more than 6500 plastic bags from the landfill. I have to say it was quite effortless to do this. The system I created was working for me and our lifestyle, and it was easy for my children to follow too. Zero waste lunches could be easy as A B C when you have the right tools for your lifestyle.
Looking back, I just did things that worked for me, my family and our lifestyle. Today I’m proud to run a 95% zero waste kitchen. But I did it in small manageable chunks. Starting with litter-less lunches.
You too can create your own family’s “Zero Waste Lunch Success Blueprint”
All you need is the following:
- Your habits around the kitchen. The amount and type of waste you create weekly on average.
- What comes easy for you to use? Bags? Containers? What type of closure and material you are more comfortable to use?
- What is your preferred way of cleaning? Hot or cold water? Dishwasher or washer/dryer?
- What are your numbers? On average how many bags and containers your family uses for school lunches in a week?
Now you can put together an effortless zero-waste lunch system that the whole family can follow. Reducing waste your way is more sustainable than following someone else!
