My typical lunch bag will contain a banana, peanut butter, a slice of bread, carrots, hummas, seasonal fruit and cheese -- mostly in plastic bags which I throw away and ends up in the landfills. Almost as bad as eating McDonalds, I would venture to say. This was really sorta saddening until I saw a product called Lunchskins.

There are a variety of websites out there that sell reusable items for your lunch that I discovered mainly from eco-friendly back to school posts on blogs. Reuseit.com is a great source for items if you need some ideas.
I've recently also done away with paper napkins at our house too. We'll be using cloth washable napkins to save trees starting this week.
Have other tips for me? As always, I would love to hear them.
P.S. I have no affiliation with any of the products/companies/organizations mentioned in this post
