Need tips! Plastic bag school lunch alternatives!

Hey team mom, there is a TON of waste that happens in our school lunches. I’d like to find some alternatives to plastic sandwich bags that aren’t Tupperware. The glass is too heavy for my six year old. And the plastic is still, plastic. Any tips that also keep food fresh?! Has anyone used something like in the pic? Thanks!!

We started looking at home goods, TJ maxx and Marshall’s for reusable, washable ziplock bags. We find 4 for $5 every now and then (2 sandwich/2 snack size).

We use “if you care” brand paper bags and stainless steel bento boxes. Also bees wrap! Also the small glass bowls work nice too for wet items. If you have an easy lunch bag to put it all back in then it’s easy to bring home. I usually tell my kids to just put everything back in the bag and then they sort it when the come home from school. That way it’s easier to not have things thrown away.

So I know you said no Tupperware of any sort, buuuuut, have you tried these bento lunch boxes? Sooo neat and keeps the food fresh and not squished. Mine has an area where a little ice pack (came with it) attaches to, the sandwich with mayo doesn’t become compromised by any hot temperature. Then it has little compartments so fruits like watermelon doesn’t mingle with the plantain chips and make it soggy :( Super cute and reusable! Just sayin’....

Definitely super fun to eat from. I can also make some make-shift lunchables of some sort, with my own ham, cheese, crackers, and dessert...but mine has veggies and the size is slightly more satisfying. Haha
