Keeping your kids' lunches happy

Published on: December 30, 2013

Ever since my son started all day Kindergarten in September, I've been packing his lunch five days a week.

That's a lot of baggies and Ziplocs.

And, though I am one who WILL wash and dry my plastic bags, the reality is that lots of them get thrown out.

I lunched with my son at his elementary school last Thursday and noticed a boy at the table whose sandwich was packed in a curious, yet intriguing, fabric sack. When I asked what it was, he flashed me the label:

Hmm, thought I. Must check this out.

So, I have.

Happy Sacks was started by a mom in Western Massachusetts who packs 500 lunches a year for her kids and was fed up with the waste of plastic bags. The company uses only local labor to sew their sacks and have recently stopped using PVC to line their sacks (PVC = Evil). They also come in a variety of designs.

Check them out. I'm going to.
