— Brown bagging can cut your weekly lunch cost by 80%. (How to Save $2,500 a Year on Lunch, Time Magazine)

— More schools nationwide are promoting waste-free lunches, as well as urging parents to tuck sandwiches and snacks in reusable containers. (Schools Promote Waste-Free Lunches, Chicago Tribune)

— Others are requiring that students bring reusable gear because even though the upfront cost is higher, it tends to be cheaper over the course of the year. (The Plastic Sandwich Bag Flunks, The New York Times)
