Gifts For Your Mother and Mother Earth

Lower mom’s carbon footprint this year by giving green this Mother’s Day, May 13th.

"Making changes in our lunchtime habits is an easy first step toward a more eco-friendly lifestyle," says Sandra Harris, president of ECOlunchboxes.com specializing in no-waste and non-toxic lunchware for children and adults.

"I was so tired of our family's over-reliance on leaching plastics food containers, plastic baggies and other throw-aways," explains Harris, a Lafayette, Calif. resident. "I started ECOlunchboxes.com so people could choose to pack their lunches in a way that's healthy for people and the planet. I truly believe that lunch by lunch we can green the world a whole bunch."

An average U.S. family spends about $400 extra on disposable lunchware and creates about 4,320 pieces of trash unnecessarily, according to the results of a Lunchbox Waste Study completed by ECOlunchboxes.

How to pack waste-free lunches:
  1. sandwiches and other main dishes, fresh fruits and  vegetables, and treats packed in a reusable, non-plastic container
  2. machine washable cloth napkins
  3. stainless-steel forks and spoons
  4. reusable, non-toxic drink containers
  5. reusable, dishwasher safe non-toxic BPA free lunchbox
"There are multiple bottom lines," says Sandra Harris, whose company is certified through the Bay Area Green Business Program. "When we green our lunches, the environment and our pocketbooks are both winners."
