When my kids were little I could send them to school with a lunch box and reusable containers for everything. It was a great way to help keep plastic out of the environment and save money by not having to buy sandwich bags, drinks and lunch bags.
Now my son is 14 and wouldn't be caught dead using reusable containers outside our home. I understand, he has a reputation to keep up at school. LOL. So I have to buy paper lunch bags, plastic sandwich bags and bottles of water. :(
But I did convince him to bring back the empty bottles so I can rinse, dry and reuse them again.
Small victories are still victories, right? Now if I can get him to turn in his assignments...
