Plastic Free July may be over, but it’s still a hot topic among the many parents here at Asteron Life. We asked our team for their favourite reusable products that get the tick of approval from the toughest of critics – their kids!
School lunchboxes without the plastic
Brightly-coloured plastic packaging makes food look fun and flashy, but we’ve found some great reusable alternatives that are just as exciting – while avoiding the waste:
- Reusable snack bags to replace those mini plastic bags (bonus: you can throw them in the washing machine to clean them!)
- Beeswax covers instead of plastic wrap (if your kids are really keen, there are online recipes to make your own DIY versions)
- Refillable yogurt pouches in cool colours to avoid those supermarket-bought squeezables (they’re also great for smoothies-on-the-go)
- Playful cutters make sandwiches look extra tasty (pop leftover crusts you cut off in the freezer and whizz them up in the food processor to make instant breadcrumbs)
