With the school holidays nearing an end I have started getting the boys ready to return to school.
This year we are trialling new rubbish-free lunchboxes. We had rubbish free lunch boxes last year but I returned them to the manufacturer because the hinges broke after only a few weeks of use - we got new replacements but they too broke. This year I have found lunchboxes that have no hinges or clips and are dishwasher safe, have no BPA and are easy for the kids to use (especially our preschooler). Here's hoping that these work better and we will get years of use out of them - the kids love being rubbish free for lunches and snacks at school.
This year we have tried to buy pencils and stationary that is either recycled or made from sustainable sources - it is great to see the choice of "eco-stationary" increasing in the shops.
