Everything you do helps. If it's something you actually will use over and over (and don't already have something you can already use) go for it.

I have long desired a bento box, but I keep wondering if it makes that big of a difference over just using a few small Gladware/Tupperware type containers. Thoughts?

I love reusable bags.com - I bought some lunch bags for myself and my kids a few weeks ago and love them! Here's my question - where can I get paper bags nowadays? I want to recycle more paper, like my shreds from my shredder and my junk mail, but I need to put them in a paper bag before I put them out at my curbside recycling. Any ideas?

Walgreens took a percentage of my total off for not using a plastic bag a few days ago. Is this something that they are rolling out all the time now? Because if so, I'm definitely keeping a few extra in my car from now on!

I love the foam holder idea!

My big issue is leakage. I don't drive to work, so everything gets thrown together into my backpack, and if it leaks, it's all over my students' papers, my change of clothes, ugh...

I have been trying to reduce the amount of plastic I use in regards to packing my lunch for work...so instead of baggies I have been using using the little jelly jars and slipping them into one of those foam can holders you see in every darn yard sale. I did buy the reusable plastic screw on lids for the jars, but have cut down on the amount of baggies I use considerably. The foam holder helps protect the glass from breakage and if you can find the right fit can coolers, keeps the little mason jar insulated as well.

GOOD MORNING ALL,I have been making my bags, CVS has a good plan.You buy one of their green leafs and attach it to a reuseable bag ,and everytime you go to the store take that bag with you and they skan the leaf and after 4 visits you earn $1.00 It adds up in time.Maybe other stores will follow. Have a great day all Carolyn from Fl emoticon

Wow, thanks for that website. I never dreamed there was such a huge amount of reuseable bags. I've been hording little canvas bags and using my Baggus and I thought I was doing good, but I'll be stocking up on new goodies with my next paycheck.

A lot of bags have just made their way into our home (canvas shopping bags from conferences, lunch bags from the Bolder Boulder, etc). I love reusable bags. :-) I'll have to check out that site.

I LOVE my Fit and Fresh too! I use just about every container that they make! Because I work long hours, I carry my breakfast, snacks and lunch in them to work everyday. Everything stays cold throughout the day. I highly recommend these great reusable containers!

Thanks for the information. I have a reusable salad container I love! It has a little cold pack that you freeze and a tiny container in the top for the salad dressing to go on at just before you eat the salad. Brand name " fit & fresh"

Thanks for the information, I'm going to look some stuff up. Maybe I'll use it as a reward if I meet my weight loss goal this month!

Yesterday I did a SparkPeople search to see if I could find reusable, eco-friendly lunch bags and found this site. reusablebags.com is amazing! They've got tons of shopping bags, backpacks, lunch bags, food containers, utensils, stuff for around the house, water bottles (Klean Kanteen, Sigg, etc), and more! It's awesome. I went home and figured out a basic list of what I'd want from there and it's over $100. But that includes a lunch bag, sandwich bags, snack bags, Klean Kanteens, and produce bags. I can't wait to order from there! Thought I'd share it with you all. :)

Loving life!
