This Reusable To-Go Kit Will Make You Feel Like a Sustainable Superhero

Tell us if you've heard this one before: you commit to taking your reusable utensils to work so you can finally stop using the plastic ones you get with takeout lunches (or in the chance you grab a snack to go). You stroll up to the lunch counter, very proud of your choices, and — BAM — you realize that you left those perfect little utensils on your countertop at home. 

So annoying, right? Been there. 

Been there so many times, in fact, that we started packing handy kits in our bags and cars so that no matter where we were, we'd always have a reusable solution within arms reach. No more forgetting those reusable grocery bags! Goodbye paper cup guilt! So long single-use! 

Want to know what we're stashing? Take a look at the checklist below. 

Car Kit 

The key to sustainability isn't buying new, it's using what you already have around. Bonus: keep everything nice and clean inside a Stand-Up or Half Gallon Stasher bag! 

  1. Reusable straw 
  2. Reusable utensils  
  3. Reusable mug or mason jar for drinks 
  4. Cloth grocery bag 
  5. Cloth napkins 
  6. A spare Stasher for holding leftovers 

Bag Kit 

Keep everything you tote in a Sandwich Stasher, which could also double as a leftovers bag whenever you need it! 

  1. Reusable straw 
  2. Reusable utensils 
  3. Cloth napkins 
  4. Collapsible mug (Note: this may be a worthy investment if you've got a small bag or are the kind of person that always forgets your reusable one!) 
  5. Silicone period cup
