Greener School Lunches

With a quick glance around most school yards at the end of the day you will be sure to see plenty of garbage cans overflowing with the leftovers from lunch! Juice boxes, drink pouches, plastic sandwich bags, granola bar wrappers and aluminum cans to name just a few.

It has been estimated that a child bringing a disposable lunch to school each day will generate 67 pounds of waste per school year. For an average size elementary school this equals about 18,760 pound of waste each year.

Although many school yards provide recycling bins they are seldom used correctly by our average elementary school student. Most of this waste just ends up in the garbage.

Today's moms are busy though and these disposable utensils, pre-packaged snack packs and juice boxes offer a quick and easy solution to the daily lunch box challenge! But - by making just a few small changes, moms can send their child off to school each day with a healthy, waste free lunch that will actually save them some money too!

So how's a busy mom ever going to find time to make these changes? Laptop Lunches to the rescue!

Laptop Lunches are American style bento boxes, designed to help families pack nutricious, environment friendly lunches for busy families on the go. Perfect for school, work or a day out these sustainable lunch containers reusable, recyclable and dishwasher safe. They are lead free and come with a handy book packed full with healthy lunch ideas and recipies.

The complete system is ideal for kids of all ages who, from personal experience, become so proud to carry their new lunch system and show it to their friends. Available in 4 color options and Yes it does come in pink too.

Each System Includes:
  • Insulated carrying case
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Laptop lunch bento box (outer and inner containers)
  • Set of stylish utensils
  • Laptop Lunch users Guide
  • Our favorite - the small dip container

How will Laptop Lunches Help My Family?

  • Allows you to purchase food items in larger quanties so saves you money while reducing waste at home.
  • Encourages your family to eat better - as you'll be using the containers to pack sliced fruit and veggies.
  • Then reusable water bottle will encourage your family to drink water instead of juice.
  • The stylish box design allows you to pack just enough food to satisy one hungry person.
  • Greatly reduces waste in the school yard.
  • Allows you to easily monitor what your picky eater has actually eaten! We've found that pre-packaged food willusually just get thrown away when your child is done. With the Laptop Lunch System they'll probably just close the lid and bring what's left over home.

We know that we'll be making an extra effort to reduce waste at our school this fall. Generating 67 pounds of waste just does not seem to be acceptable in todays environment.

Still not convinced? SuperMomz is proud to carry the Laptop Lunch Bento Box Systems. For more information about reducing lunch waste at school or about these great systems contact us at info@supermomz.com.

An alternative to your local thrift store

We recently renovated our home and office and found that we had lots of baby clothes and gear to give away. We piled it into the car and almost dropped it off to our local thrift store's drop off center - but really wanted to hand this great stuff to someone who really needed it - and not to a store fo resale! (Althought we know that these stores and centers do a really great job in helping those in need).

In the search for somewhere to give our used baby gear to we stumbled across a really great center right in our own neighborhood The Sydney M Irmas Transitional Living Center. The employees at the center could not have been nicer - even helping me park my van as I'm not such a great driver! They were so thankful for our donation and mentioned that they have many families with children from newborns to teens who are in great need and have nothing!

So, if you are in the Los Angeles area and like us, you want to give your donation directly to people in need rather than to a thrift store, check out The Sydney M Irmas Transitional Living Center. We're certain that other states and cities have similar programs too. Doing something so small will certainly be a great help for these families - and after all - all don't moms deserve the opportunity to be SuperMomz!

SuperMomz is happy to announce that we'll be driving all our donations over to This Center along with asking all our friends and family to do the same!
