September is here and as summer days grow shorter, many have been preparing for back-to-school season. Here at Seward Co-op, we’re ready to help students of all ages gear up to start the new school year on the best foot. We’ve got sustainable containers, a variety of snacks for even the pickiest eaters, and quick meal options to lighten your load.
Sustainable Snacking Supplies
Our stores have many options to skip the brown bags and opt for reusable lunch containers. Preserve snack and sandwich containers are an easy-to-clean option for snacks and drier lunches. Flexible, reusable snack bags are stronger and last much longer than your standard zip-top plastic baggies, plus they come in cute designs and colors. Try hand-washable Stasher bags, or machine-washable Now Designs snack, sandwich, and foldable insulated lunch bags. Don’t forget your own reusable cutlery like sustainably-sourced bamboo utensils, to cut down on having to use single-use plasticware.
