Reduce your lunch waste
Did you know that half of all the garbage in schools is generated during just two hours — lunchtime?* In a 2019 study by World Wildlife Fund, it was estimated that schools across the US waste 530,000 tons of food each year. Add that to the 67 pounds of packaging waste per lunch that the EPA estimates schools produce every year, and the average middle school creates over 40,000 pounds of lunch waste per year. That's about the same weight as two school buses!
