Juice cartons are easy to toss into your child’s lunch or pack up for a trip to the park. Plus, the good news is, most are recyclable, and the paper fiber contained within said cartons is actually valuable and useful when making new products. The problem is that in 2009, at least half a million tons of carton waste ended up in landfills, and recycling rates for cartons haven’t improved much since then. Worse, the average juice carton can take more than 300 years to decompose (IF it ever decomposes). As a green parent, you know you need a better solution, and while you can simply send a reusable water bottle to school, many won’t fit nicely into a lunch box. However, Reuseit’s 10oz Reusable Juice Box is one such solution that will slide easily into most lunch boxes or bags. This healthy juice box is the ultimate on-the-go item for children, replacing all those traditional, single-use juice boxes. Each reusable juice box is refillable and cost-efficient, and saves on landfill waste. Strong and virtually indestructible, these slim and attractive reusable juice boxes are made of 100% BPA-free Tritan, and come complete with an easy-to-open, spill-proof lid and two reusable food-grade silicone straws. Perfect for school, the park, beach and more, plus no spills, no waste and you’ll save money! Available in six fun colors.
