Have you ever seen the amount of trash accumulated at a school after one day, especially after just lunch?. Kids Konserve began when two moms began to realize how much they contributed to the large amount of trash each day. By using foil, individually wrapped snacks, and plastic bags, and juice boxes, it's no wonder each child, on average, produces around 67 pounds of lunchtime trash per year! Eck!
In January of this year, Kids Konserve began a challenge with schools to help them reduce waste and, when they participate, they get a discount on all items! If you have a child in school, please check out the Kids Konserve Waste-Free Lunch Challenge to find out what your family and school can do to reduce waste! Chance and Lynn, the two Mamas behind Kids Konserve, are dedicated to making lunchtime waste-free. Plus, the Kids Konserve product line is completely non-toxic, BPA, PVC, phthalate, and lead-free so, they are all safe for your body and the earth!
I received the Green Squiggles Snak Pak to review. The Snak Pak includes a cute reusable drawstring bag with a cotton napkin, a leak-proof stainless steel container, and a food cozy! What's a food cozy? It's the perfect alternative to plastic bags. The food cozy can hold anything from sandwiches to veggies and chips and velcros shut. Need to wash it? Just wash it in the sink and it dries within minutes and is ready to be reused!
As a child, my mom always packed lunches for me and, looking back, we definitely produced our share of trash each day. Now that I have children, it's my goal to reduce our trash accumulation and purchase reusable bags and containers instead of plastic bags. That's why I was so excited to find Kids Konserve!
All of the items are very sturdy and of great quality. Josiah loves the drawstring bag and wears it around like a backpack. It's perfect for a lunch or even a small picnic or snack on the go! The stainless steel container is absolutely leak-proof and we've used it to hold fruits and purees and the food cozy is the perfect size for sandwiches. I'm attempting to switch to cloth napkins, too, so I like the cotton napkin, too, and the modern design.
We are very pleased with our Kids Konserve items and will be purchasing more in the near future. We need more of the food cozies and, at only $9 a 2-pack, they are quite affordable! Just imagine how much you could cut down on trash just by using the food cozies instead of plastic bags! I highly recommend any of their product and I definitely support their mission!
