Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do here at Wearth. That’s why we’re always looking to inspire others to take some easy steps to live a more eco-friendly life. Small steps add up to a huge difference, so why not get involved?
Making a simple swap to using an eco-friendly and plastic free lunch box is a perfect starting point for your journey to producing less waste or even zero waste. By using a sustainable lunch box, you’re reducing the amount of waste that will end up in landfill or make its way into our oceans.
A recent study shockingly found that only one third of the UK’s plastic food packaging is recycled. Much of this packaging comes from ready meals, takeaways, or supermarket-bought lunches. Fortunately, there’s a simple and easy solution to all this unnecessary waste: an eco-friendly lunch box that you can take with you wherever you go.
Your plastic free lunch box needs to actually be practical though, or it’ll end up in landfill with the takeaway boxes. Your lunch box needs to be big enough to fit in a variety of foods, so that it can be your go-to for any meal. It also needs to be lightweight, so you can fit it in your bag to take anywhere you go. Lots of takeaway shops let you use your own containers rather than the usual disposable containers, so make the most of that!
Sustainable doesn’t have to mean boring – at Weath, we’ve got a wide range of plastic free lunch boxes. Whether you’re looking for simple and understated or bold and contemporary, there’s an eco-friendly lunch box for you! We’ll share with you our absolute favourite picks for all the family.
