The great thing about reusable utensils is that there’s no need to go buy anything special. Just grab the fork or spoon from your utensil draw, toss them in the bag, and you’re ready to rock! If you want to have special utensils just for lunch, try one of these options:
- A bamboo flatware set. This set even comes with its own wrap, to secure dirty utensils for the rest of the day.
- Reusable wooden utensils. These are light and sturdy, and they won’t be noisy in your bag like metal utensils would.
You don’t need a fancy lunchbox to bring your lunch! If that’s your speed, go for it, but if you’re on a budget, here are some reusable options to keep your food from leaking.
- Glass Lock. These affordable, food-safe containers are made from glass with a plastic lid that locks in place to prevent leaks.
- Lunchbots. If you’re packing for a kiddo, glass is probably not the best option. Lunchbots are stainless steel, so they’re light and won’t break if they get dropped.
You don’t necessarily need to buy anything, though. Got some food containers handy? Just use those to start packing a waste-free lunch today without shelling out any extra dough.
That lunch bag is almost all packed! The only thing that’s missing is a napkin. You can buy cloth napkins or make your own. Check out tips for both on the next page!
