As a new school year approaches, the state-wide OSU Extension Sustainability Team has published "Ten Tips for Packing Waste-Free Lunches", a new, easy-to-read guide to help families be more sustainable, save money, and reduce single-use items. The Sustainability Team plans to share this new resource with parents, schools, solid waste management districts, recycling outlets, and other organizations that promote sustainability. The tip sheet was written by Laura Stanton, the Family and Consumer Sciences Educator in Warren County. She reminds people that making the small changes necessary to pack waste-free lunches, sustained over time, can lead to big and impactful results.

The Tip Sheet is available here: Ten Tips for Packing Waste-Free Lunches (PDF)
