One of the biggest culprits of waste is buying lunch in disposable containers on a daily basis. But it can also be a real waste of money, equaling about $2,000 a year on average per person. By bringing your lunch, you can cut back on all the waste when you use reusable containers. And you can also use reusable hot and cold beverage bottles at work, one for your morning coffee (and most coffee shops give a discount for bringing a bottle) and one to fill with filtered water from free water fountains.
