Waste-Free Lunches

Reduce lunch waste by holding a waste-free lunch

Waste Wise Schools Schools program

Does your school produce a lot of waste at lunch from individually wrapped items such as yogurt, museli bars, chips etc? Consider holding a waste-free lunch to highlight this issue and provide simple solutions to avoid lunch packaging.

Waste-free lunches can be held as a one off event or regularly. Consider providing a prize to the class with the least lunch waste and publish your results in your school newsletter. Another benefit of holding a waste free lunch is that it promotes healthy eating as healthy foods are usually the ones with the least packaging.

Use the waste-free lunch toolkit to help plan your waste-free lunch.
