August 15th marks our first year ANNIVERSARY! Together change is happening and those 67 pounds of lunchtime trash created by each student each school year is slowly but surely getting smaller!

THE FACTS – The average school-aged child generates an estimated 67 pounds of lunchtime trash per school year.  25 million children carry lunch to school daily, which means 3.5 billion pounds of lunchtime trash is dumped into our landfills each school year!  Kids Konserve can help reduce the amount of waste we produce by millions of pounds of landfill per year and save you money.

KEEP IT UP SCHOOLS! – Our Waste-free Challenge was a hit and was run in 35 schools during the 2008/2009 school year. We are hoping to triple this number and triple the amount of lunchtime trash prevented this school year!

TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE! – Please contact us to start a Waste-free Challenge at your school. You not only will educate your families on the importance of REUSE and going WASTE-FREE, but you will make MONEY for your school at the same time! If you already participate in our Waste-free Challenge here is how you can jumpstart the program again this year:

  • At Lunch – Waste-free Lunch Kits! It’s easy to be waste-free with our waste-free-lunch kits, insulated lunch sacks made 100% from PLASTIC BOTTLES, food kozies, and stainless steel containers.

  • In the Classroom – The Kids Konserve Party Pak! Take the trash out of the parties and keep the fun in the classroom – Kids Konserve has parties in the bag with our PARTY PAKS – reusable, dishwasher safe, 100% recycled plastic plates, cups and cutlery!

  • At Recess and on the FieldCUSTOMIZED STAINLESS STEEL BOTTLES! Rid yourself, your school, and your community of plastic water bottles for good!  Create your own custom logo stainless steel bottles with Kids Konserve – minimum order just 50 bottles!
