Making and taking lunch to work or school saves money, and gives you better control over nutritional content and calories. Both overeating and food wastage are less likely.

Re-usable, re-sealable lunch boxes, thermos flasks and water bottles also help reduce food packaging waste from disposable food containers, plastic cutlery and unnecessary wrappings.
