The decision of using a sandwich lunch bag is an easy action that will benefit us in our day by day. If we use it daily and we explain and encourage the children to use them, we will improve some aspects related to our health, the one of our planet and the education of our kids. With this simple behaviour, it is estimated that a school produces 3 kg less of waste daily.
It promotes a healthy diet. It can be used to transport sandwiches and a piece of fruit. Using it every day for breakfast or afternoon snack, we avoid the compulsive and last moment shopping of, for instance, sweet junk food.
The awareness about the raise of waste and its reuse. Betting for the use of a sandwich lunch bag is betting for the change of habits in our family and for the transmission of values, such as the sustainability, to all of its members.
It promotes the use of recyclable containers. With the use of the sandwich lunch bag we start using reusable containers in different moments of the day.
Reduce the waste produced in schools. With a single action we avoid the use of aluminium foil or clingfilm, and in most other cases, the use of a plastic bag. The school is a perfect environment to set a group habits that improve the sustainability of our planet.
It promotes the active and autonomous participation of the students. In this daily behaviour, children must be conscious of the importance of taking care of their sandwich lunch bag and taking it before coming back home for its next use. This little action helps them to be more responsible and mature.
During a school season a child can use until 9 rolls of aluminium foil, while a sandwich lunch bag may last even several school seasons.
