Disposable Lunch Boxes

What? Throw it away?? Hey, you know my EasyLunchboxes are REUSABLE and that's best for the environment, but what about those times when you HAVE to pack a disposable lunch for a field trip or whatever? Start saving those odd-ball plastic containers! Here are some creative, eco-friendly ideas, recycling what would have gone in the trash anyway :)

Disposable Lunch. I used the plastic strawberry container that was about to make it's way to our recycle bin.

For a field trip where she needed a totally disposable lunch... no lunchbox, no containers, no water bottles. Everything needed to be able to be thrown away...

Field Trip Lunch. We put this sandwich in a recyclable blueberry container so that it won't be squished.

We came up with a few recyclable containers, and I did have brown paper bags (which I bought for a scrapbooking project, not lunches)

"Bring a sack lunch (yay!!!) that is disposable (boo!!!)" And if you know me at all by now, you know that sticking a sandwich in a baggie and calling it a day just wasn't going to happen.

For her drink, I washed out and refilled a water bottle that was with our recycling and put a new label on it - I re-labeled the tomato basket too - just to make it a little bit cute :)  I also instructed Bella to look around to see if there was a recycling bin before tossing anything in a trash bin.

Bella has a field trip today and needed a throw-away lunch. We did have brown paper bags, but no plastic baggies, so I packed everything in a plastic basket the grape tomatoes came in, lined with a coffee filter.

A plastic 12-cup mini-muffin-type tray that had once housed some Trader Joes mini quiches. I cut it in half and made a pumpkin patch field trip bento.
