A litterless lunch is simply that. It is a lunch that creates no waste!
It can involve the use of reusable containers or possibly no containers at all, to store and transport food.
It involves the elimination of disposable products and the encouraged use of reusable containers. The
goal of a litterless lunch is to reduce waste production, and therefore help to reduce our impact on the
Earth. Even a small switch or change in lunch habits can have a significant impact on Eldorado’s waste production.
Starting Wednesday, January 24th , all Eldorado students are encouraged to bring an Litterless Lunch. EveryWednesday, a student will tally the number of participating students. A Litterless Lunch is a lunch that has at least 3 items that are reusable. Please see our examples below:
Litterless Lunch Ideas
Reusable containers, thermos, reusable drink bottle, plastic water bottle (with the intent that caps must be removed when put into the RECYCLING BOX), buy large yogurt containers and put a serving size into a reusable container
Tinfoil, Plastic Wrap, Wrappers, juice boxes,
Monthly Green Certificates will be given to the top participating classes in the Primary and Junior/ Intermediate Division. It is Eco Clubs hope that our wonderful custodians will see a reduction in waste every Wednesday. Thank you for helping turn our school GREEN.
