Ideas for Parents

Waste free lunches contain only items that are eaten, composted, reused or recycled. Waste-free lunch programs favour the use of reusable food containers, drink containers, utensils, and napkins.

They discourage the use of disposable packaging or wrappers, such as pre-packaged foods, plastic wrap or bags, juice boxes and pouches, paper napkins, and disposable utensils. Instead, all food is provided in reusable food and drink containers, so that there is no packaging to place into the bin and the majority of the waste produced is organic (i.e. food scraps) which can be recycled via school or home compost bins and worm farms.
