Honest Kids offers an easy-to-take lunchtime drink that is refreshing and not two sweet. They have about half the sugar of leading kids’ juice drinks and 100 percent daily value of Vitamin C. In fact, each Honest Kid beverage contains 9g of sugar per 6.75 fl oz pouch. The leading kids’ juice drinks in single-serve packaging contain approximately 20g of sugar per 6.75 fl oz serving. (Note: many leading kids’ juice drinks come in 6 fl oz pouches). www.honesttea.com/kids/
U Konserve was started six years ago by two moms who were shocked by the amount of lunchtime trash generated each day in their children’s school. Here’s a scary fact: one child produces 67 pounds of lunch time trash each year!! Their very first product and one that is still very popular today, the Waste-Free Lunch Kit, features a cotton sack, cloth napkin, 13 oz stainless steel beverage bottle, two leak proof 8 oz containers for snacks and sides and a Food Kozy Wrap for a sandwich or crackers. Perfect for lunch all year round! www.kidskonserve.com
Green Apple Supply
Green Apple Supply believes that eco products should be affordable for everyone. They feel that without a universal shift in consumption, our physical ability to inhabit the planet is limited, so it needs to be easy to do something to make a difference. To this end, they offer a variety of everyday back-to-school supplies including colored pencils, paper, construction paper and backpacks that are made with the Earth in mind. www.greenapplesupply.org
