5 Ways to Green Up Your Lunch Box
Learn how to pack a healthy and eco-friendly bento box lunch.
Take-along lunches are back in style. Packing your lunch saves money, encourages you to eat a healthy meal and can reduce waste.
The ancient Japanese tradition of packing lunch in a bento box, a decorative container with small compartments, elevates the take-along lunch. Bento lunches usually contain a wide variety of foods in artful arrangements; plus, the compartments of a bento box help control portion sizes.
If you don’t have a bento box, use reusable containers to pack a waste-free lunch.
