Last year, I was quite excited over creating a zero waste “to-go” kit. I’ll include pictures here:
It seemed quite classy, in my opinion, and I was impressed with myself. However, reality has sunk in. I’m not in college anymore (a personal kit may be useful when I return). When I go out to eat, which is never a spontaneous event, I am usually out with my kids, husband, or all of the above.
Therefore, a family outing kit would be more useful. Such a thing would probably include cutlery, napkins, straws, and some largish containers to bring left-overs home in. The kit could fit in a large lunch box.
For my day-to-day zero waste “to go” kit, I would say that these things make more sense and can be stored in my purse:
- a reusable shopping bag
- a handkerchief
- a utensil (I have a Light My Fire fork, spoon, knife utensil that could be good for this)
- a water bottle
- a travel mug
- a snack
How about you? Does a personal kit make sense? Do you have personal and family kits? How have you solved the prepping conundrum without burdening yourself? Let us know in the comments below!
Until next time, keep that talk walking!
