Waste-Free and Reuseable Ways with Kids Konserve

Choose to Re-USE with KidKonserve BPA, Lead & Phthalate Free Products!

"See that lady mommy?"  asked my son as he pointed in the direction of the school stage.  There sat three individals who looked to me as a trio of Janitors.  It's always interesting dinning with a class of kindergarteners at lunchtime.  "That lady works very hard mommy, she cleans up when we spill something"   my son proclaimed as he brought my attention back to his important discussion.  And sure enough, as the lunch carried on and in-between my hard to break habit of telling the other children to chew with their mouths closed, the spills occurred and with eagle eyes, these hardworking men and women jumped to the cause. 

As lunch time came to an end, the 3 janitors then manned 3 large garbage cans.  What an amazing amount of rubbish there is I thought -- and there are still 2 more lunch periods to go... I stopped to thank "The Lady" and let her know her hard work was noticed by my son.  Now I'd like to thank 2 other ladies, that with a desire to teach by example and empower the children of the future, began their company, Kids Konserve. Lynn Julian and Chance Claxton have some amazing waste-free lunch products - here are just a few:

Get back to basics with KidsKonserve version of the good ol' brown paper bag.  Use for packing school lunches, picnics or on the go snacks.  Use entire kit or the individual components of the kit in your own lunch boxes.

Dimensions - Overall: 5.25" H x 3.5" W, Without Lid: 5" H x 3.10" W

Leak-proof, insulated, double-walled thermos keeps food toasty hot for hours!  Perfect for a change in your child's (or your!) lunch time routine!  Pack mac-n-cheese, soup, hot cocoa or leftovers in the morning and lunch will still be steaming when you are ready to eat.

Note: To ensure your food stays extra hot, it is  recommended you pour hot or boiling water in to the thermos for 3 to 4 minutes prior to putting your food in.

 Dimensions: 13.5" Round

Stop using plastic baggies altogether when you stock up on our innovative food kozies!  Wrap sandwiches, bagels and cream cheese, tortilla roll-ups, meat and cheese slices, apple slices or whatever you want to wrap up and take along.  Also perfect for use at home! Wrap up blocks of cheese, deli meats, cut cucumber, bell peppers or whatever else you used to put in plastic wrap or foil.  Easy to wash, just rinse/wash in the sink and air dry in minutes.

You may recycle the food kozies! Simply cut off the velcro closure and toss them in the recycle bin! They are plastic #4.

Leak-proof nesting trio of containers are the perfect solution for packing yogurt, fruit salad, apple sauce, pasta salad, chips and hummus, apples and peanut butter and more! Use them to store your leftovers in the frig and get rid of those other pesky plastic containers! And since they all nest perfectly inside one another they will take up very little space in your cupboard, which means you will have room for a few sets!

So true about all that trash at school... I also volunteer at my daughter's school and the garbage cans overflow after lunch.
Thank you for this great post and sharing this resource.
