Reuse your ziplock bags until they can be used no more
I reuse any bags that I pack snacks in for myself. While I can't count on the kids to bring them back home, Hubby and I reuse them for our snacks. Give em a quick rinse and repack them for the next day when you get home. I bought a bulk box of ziplocks 18 months ago from Costco, have tons left!!
Portion - Snack Size Bags - As Soon As You Get Home
Whenever I buy a snack, for example, almonds, I weigh out and pre-package multiple snack size bags so I can just grab and go. Depending on the snack, I'll do 3-5 bags at a time. I'll throw one them in the car, purse, etc. When I'm out, I'll have something to keep me satisfied instead fast food.
Snack size bags are easier to take along instead of tupperware, but to be as eco-friendly as possible, I reuse the bags.
