Did you know? 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.
This year, Seventh Generation is delighted to join forces once again with Annie's, Honest Tea, and Stonyfield to help families toss their disposable lunch bags. Annie's is offering a free Kids Konserve lunch sack with the purchase of any participating product now through October 31, 2012! Available nationwide, this back-to-school promotion provides an easy way for your family to reduce waste and be rewarded for going about your normal shopping.
Reusable lunch sacks are the way to go! Visit Annies.com/backtoschool for a list of eligible products, print out a form then mail in proof of purchase of any two brands to receive your FREE Kids Konserve lunch sack.
