Lunch Boxes Go Green
Mom creates an eco-friendly container that cuts down on waste.
Lunch hour is usually a fun time for school kids, but with all the baggies and the brown bags, it's definitely not the greenest time.
Each child can create up to 67 pounds of trash over the school year.
Mother of three Stephanie Stiller thought there had to be a greener way, so the Illinois mom started brightBIN, a "green" lunch box company, with the goal of eliminating waste.
"The neat thing about the brightBIN lunch box is it has a handle it can be used on its own. The lid is attached so kids can't lose it so it reduces the amount of waste that winds up in the garbage," she says.
The plastic is third party tested and free of BPA, lead and BPC, and it fits in any lunch box.
