Just in time for the back-to-school season, citizenpip introduces eco-friendly, practical, and safe reusable lunch kits that make it easy to pack a waste-free lunch. Inspired by the belief that making small changes in your daily habits can make a significant impact, citizenpip offers an easy alternative to the disposable lunch so that families and schools can make an immediate difference in reducing trash and landfill.
In a school year, the average school aged child generates 67 pounds of lunch waste from disposable food storage and wraps. The typical disposable lunch might include a paper bag, three plastic bags, a juice box, a paper napkin, and a plastic utensil. By replacing these disposable items with reusable lunch gear five days a week for one year, one person could be personally responsible for eliminating 260 paper bags, 780 plastic bags, 260 juice boxes, 260 paper napkins, and 260 plastic utensils from being discarded into landfill. One family can make a sizable difference by switching from disposable to reusable.
Created by a mother of three boys who understands convenience is paramount, citizenpip offers a reusable lunch kit that makes it easy for people to switch from disposable to reusable. "With the busy lifestyles of most families, being green is sometimes not the most convenient thing. citizenpip aims to give families an easy and practical alternative to the disposable lunch. If more families make one small change by adopting a waste-free lunch, we can collectively make a huge impact," said citizenpip founder Christina Ip-Toma.
citizenpip reusable lunch kits come with an insulated lunchbag, airtight food containers, an insulated stainless steel food jar, a stainless steel water bottle, cotton napkins, and stainless steel flatware. All citizenpip products have been lab tested to be "muck-free" (lead-free, PVC-free, phthalate-free, and BPA-free). With products that are designed to be easy to clean and easy to use, the lunch kits also accommodate different types of containers for maximum flexibility.
Schools that partner with citizenpip to promote a waste-free lunch receive a percentage of sales proceeds.
