FREE Kids Konserve Lunch Sack from Annie’s Homegrown, Stonyfield, Honest Kids & Seventh Generation + a Giveaway!

UPDATE #2: THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. Winner is #3, Tammi.

UPDATE: Because my site was experiencing techincal issues that prevented some people from entering this giveaway, I am re-posting and extending it until Tuesday, 9/18/12 at 3PM EST. The issue has since been resolved! :-)

I think it’s safe to assume that most of us with school age kids are either back into the school groove or slowly working ourselves there. This is week number 4 for my 1st grader, and while going to all day/every day school has been an adjustment, it has been a wonderful thing (for both mom and daughter, thankfully)!

Lunch is an important part of our kids’ day – whether packed or purchased at school. However, I had no idea how much waste is generated by all of those lunches! The EPA estimates that 31 tons of plastic waste was generated in 2012, and only 12% of the plastic bags, sacks, and wraps created were recycled. Additionally, every school lunch creates an average of 67 pounds of trash per school year. That means, just one average-size middle school creates over 40,000 pounds of lunch waste each year!

I’m excited to let you know that Annie’s Homegrown, Stonyfield YoKids, Honest Kids and Seventh Generation have teamed up for the second consecutive year to help curb lunchtime waste by offering families free Kids Konserve reusable lunch sacks this back-to-school season!

Through 10/31/12, you can receive a FREE Kids Konserve lunch sack when you purchase 2 participating products.

Eligible products include:

  • Any Annie’s Homegrown item
  • Stonyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt 6-packs or Squeezers
  • Honest Kids Organic Drinks 8-pack carton or 64-ounce bottle
  • Seventh Generation Disinfectants (sprays or wipes)

The re-useable lunch sacks are washable, made of recycled cotton and eliminate a great deal of waste that would otherwise occur from the use of daily paper or plastic lunch bags. You can request up to 3 bags per household, while supplies last.

You can learn more about how to get your FREE Kids Konserve Lunch Sack, and print your rebate form here.

(coupons include: FREE Honest Kids Juice (8 ct), FREE Annie’s Homegrown Product (max. $7.25), FREE YoKids Organic Yogurt (6 pk or 8 pk), and FREE Seventh Generation Laundry Product (max. value $18.75)

We make mini muffins with pumpkin, banana, applesauce, raisins, flax seed and oatmeal and freeze them. Perfect for popping in lunches straight from the freezer, they are ready to eat by lunchtime. My boys love them and I love how much fiber and other good stuff is in them.

I love feeding my kids almonds or peanuts for a good “brain boosting” part of their lunch. It really helps keep them full too.

I posted via facebook (https://www.facebook.com/#!/pdogmum) and mentioned that you could get a free lunchsack with purchase.

My best lunch waste reduction tip is to use reusable containers instead of baggies but if you must use baggies then buy the thicker/stronger type and wash and reuse them.

I use reusable baggies for my daughter’s lunches to cut down on trash. She uses 1or 2 every day. I toss them in with the laundry and they are ready to be used the next day.
