Winner: Sarah H – hall490@xxxxxxx
One thing that moms can all agree upon is that we want to make sure we feed our kids foods that not only taste good, but are good for them as well! What makes it even better is packing lunches with little to no waste. That means reusable bags instead of paper sacks and even containers that they can bring home to wash instead of using plastic baggies!
Annie’s Homegrown, Stonyfield YoKids, Honest Kids and Seventh Generation have teamed up for the second consecutive year to help curb lunchtime waste by offering families free Kids Konserve reusable lunch sacks this back-to-school season.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 31 tons of plastic waste was generated in 2010, and only 12 percent of the plastic bags, sacks and wraps created were recycled. Additionally, every school lunch creates an average of 67 pounds of trash per school year. That means, just one average-size middle school creates over 40,000 pounds of lunch waste each year.
Through Oct. 31, 2012, with the purchase of products from partner companies, families will receive a free Kids Konserve lunch sack. Eligible products include:
» Any Annie’s Homegrown item
» Stonyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt 6-packs or Squeezers
» Honest Kids Organic Drinks 8-pack carton or 64-ounce bottle
» Seventh Generation Disinfectants (sprays or wipes)
The re-useable lunch sacks are washable, made of recycled cotton and eliminate a great deal of waste that would otherwise occur from the use of daily paper or plastic lunch bags.
To get your bag, just purchase the items listed and head over here to get your form. Print it out and include TWO proofs of purchase from these items to: Annie’s Lunch Sack, 1610 Fifth Street, Berkeley, CA 94710!
One reader will receive a Seventh Generaion Lunch bag with coupons from Seventh Generation, Honest Kids, Stonyfield and Annie’s Products
