Meet Stasher's Sustainable Schools
This fall, we launched our Sustainable School Giveaway to help schools reduce their single-use lunch waste. We asked you to nominate a school that needs a Stasher for every teacher and student, and set out to pick 5 lucky recipients.
But the applications were so great, we ended up choosing 8 schools! Meet the winners who are well on their way to a litter-free lunch, helping us Save What Matters one meal at a time.
A real difference, every day.
Research shows us that lunch is a pretty serious eco-offender. The average consumer uses between 200 and 1,000 baggies per year, and to-go containers are some of the biggest contributors to plastic waste.
The good news is that together, we can make a big impact just by changing how we pack our food. Imagine if every person in your school swapped out single-use plastics at lunch for a more sustainable option every day, all school year long.
