Recently, I volunteered as a parent helper for my daughter’s school excursion.
Prior to this event, I received a note that recess and lunch should be packed into two separate disposable bags.
On the day of the excursion, almost of all the kids had their food in disposable plastic bags. Thus, after their recess the trash can was half full of empty plastic bags…and that doesn’t include lunch yet.
My daughter was the only one using a reusable folding bag. I gave her one which she can easily fold back into a compact size. The eco bag was small enough to fit in her pocket.
If only parents and children alike will be made more aware of the availability of fun, foldable, eco bags for kids then we can reduce the use of plastic bags.
There are various designs available on the market that any child would be proud to use her own eco-friendly reusable bag.
