Bring your own lunch

Brown-bagging lunch is cool again, thanks to the green movement.

I confess, I’ve never been a big fan of bringing your own lunch. I always associated it with eating cold food for lunch. No matter how cute and adorable my lunch containers were when I was younger, it didn’t make up for cold meals. As can be expected, when I started working, I became a big fan of takeout. But takeout meals also posed some problems. You end up with a plastic bag, a brown bag, the takeout containers, plastic cutlery, tons of paper napkins, and/or paper plates.

Something had to be done. Eating my lunch was producing more waste than it should. What was the solution? Back to basics – bringing my own lunch. Now my husband uses Zojirushi Mr. Bento Stainless-Steel lined Lunch Jar, Silver, while I use Zojirushi Ms. Bento Stainless Lunch Jar, Beige

There are a lot of other containers out there that can do the job very well. Be on the lookout for them.
