Each fortnight for the six months until the end of 2013, I will be doing a series of short posts titled ‘Swap This’. These posts will be centred around ways to make little changes by using alternative products to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill. I hope to show you that there are other options to buying over packaged goods and maybe you will save a little money too!
This is an embarrassing admission, here goes. For a long time I used to wrap my sandwich in cling wrap and then put it in my sandwich holder. There I said it. It feels good to get that off my chest. I actually thought the holder was just for protection so your sandwich didn’t get squashed, I mean it is, but it’s so much more than that as it holds your sandwich together as well. Yes, I was cynical too but even a major salad sandwich will be held together perfectly in your sandwich container. I started off with the simple Tupperware sandwich keeper which I still use if I am just having a sandwich but I have also found The Rubbish Free Lunchbox by Nude Food Movers which does exactly what it promises and gives you a tidy lunchbox that keeps your lunch and snacks crisp and unsquashed throughout the day.
