Waste-Free Lunches

Edison Go Green encourages students to bring a waste-free lunch.  We encourage students to reduce their waste by bringing drinks in reusable bottles, packing food in reusable boxes/containers and using washable cloth napkins. 
For more info on waste-free lunches see www.wastefreelunches.org.

In 2009 we were awarded a $1000 grant to purchase waste-free lunch items in bulk so we can offer some products to parents at a lower cost.  We are hoping that by doing this we will encourage more students and parents to pack waste-free lunches. We also have talented parents who make cloth napkins and cloth sandwich bags. 

Right now Edison Go Green is offering for sale cloth napkins (3 for $3), cloth snack bags ($5), compostable wax bags and Bento Boxes.  Contact Nicci Woodward for current stock and prices.

Edison Go Green has also teamed with a local business, One Small Step, for you to purchase waste-free lunch items and green schools supplies. They will donate 10% of our gross sales back to the Edison PTA.  Visit them online at www.onesmallstep.com to purchase items such as lunch boxes and totes, reusable water bottles, food containers, food sacks and much much more!  They will also deliver once a month to our school site for no charge so you will save on shipping charges too.
