Kids Konserve

Kids Konserve challenges children and their families to cut down on the waste created by school lunches, while teaching about the importance of reuse.

Waste-free lunch kits and eco-cool reusable lunch products... Toss out the baggies, fold up the foil, Kids Konserve empowers children and parents to do their part in saving the environment.

Launched in August 2008, Kids Konserve presented their signature waste-free lunch kit and product line followed by GO WILD butterfly and caterpillar waste-free lunch kits.

Early 2009 introduced the Party Pak, with Build a Kit due out for Back to School 2009. New products continue to be introduced, along with Kids Knews, a blog and educational programs with their school Waste-Free Challenges which give a percentage of every sale to the school.

Kids Konserve creates awareness via their Waste-Free Lunch Challenge Fundraiser and teach about not creating waste, Kids Konserve can help lead to a major savings in our landfills and hence reduce greenhouse gases. Many schools do not even recycle, and the amount of trash produced by one child’s lunch alone creates 67 pounds of landfill waste in a school year!

It is amazing how young children pick up on concepts so easily. Even something like reducing waste, reusing and recycling! My three year already understands that we don't throw out our milk jugs, paper and cardboard. We have special boxes for them to go into and take them to the "big green boxes" at the grocery store. LOL She even helps me sort the recyclable products.
