You’ve heard me talk about wasteful one-time use plastic water bottles and wasteful packaging of food and other items. In order to avoid those wasteful items, you will need to invest in a few reusable items, like a water bottle, food containers, cloth napkins, plates, lunch bags, etc. Now I’m going to share a way for you to save some money while you save the environment.
I’ve been a fan of Kids Konserve waste-free products for awhile now. They have many products that are meant to be reused – no more waste! Here are just a few of their items:
- Lunch kit (recycled cotton sack, cloth napkin, stainless steel bottle, food kozy, and two stainless steel food containers)
- Insulated lunch sack
- Non-toxic ice pack
- Nesting stainless steel food containers
- Mini stainless steel food containers
Why I Love Kids Konserve
Their products aren’t just reusable, they are safe and non-toxic! Their complete line of reusable waste-free lunch packing products are made from the safest, non-leaching, non-toxic, BPA, PVC, phthalate, and lead-free materials.
I’ve used the stainless steel food containers for a long time for my son’s snacks. We buy items in bulk and then when we head out, I put a few things in the containers; no waste from individual snack packaging. I have name stickers for him and I label all his items. I have sent these with him to preschool with him and have never lost them.
Next up on my list to purchase is the Party Pak. This kit contains reusable plates, cups, forks, knives, and spoons. Party Paks come in two sizes (25 of each piece or 12 of each piece). What a great solution for all the waste from birthday parties, class parties, picnics, and school events!
Now that you have a feel for all the great products they offer, here is a little treat. Enter the coupon code earth15 to receive a 15% discount on your order. But hurry, this offer expires April 30, 2010. And let me know what you get!
