Sustainability Tips for the School Year

Post Date:09/07/2018 10:30 AM

School is back in session for local children. To help families reduce waste during the school year, the Public Works Department, the Sausalito Sustainability Commission, and Zero Waste Marin have compiled these sustainability tips:
  • Pack a zero waste lunch. Reusable lunch boxes, washable containers, and cloth napkins are great alternatives to single use plastic and paper bags, plastic wrap, and other wasteful forms of food storage.
  • Avoid single-use juice boxes, milk cartons, and soda cans. Instead, send your child to school with a reusable water bottle or purchase beverages in bulk and store them in a reusable thermos.
  • Purchase snacks like nuts and dried fruit that are sold in bulk bins. These snacks can be packed for your child in a reusable container.
  • Save money and reduce waste by purchasing refillable writing utensils such as mechanical pencils or refillable ink pens.
