Help Donate Lunch Gear to Those in Need

Reposted from Blog:

Last year, as many of us in the office were signing our kids up for their first year of school, we noticed that our school supply lists included optional donations of items like back packs, lunch bags and water bottles for children in need.

It really got us talking - with so many affordable waste-free lunch items in our store, why not pick up an extra lunch bag or set of utensils for our kids' classmates?

So we did! And we're doing the same this year.

We encourage our customers to also consider purchasing an extra lunch bag, reusable water bottle or other back-to-school essential for a child in need.
Additionally, for the second year in a row, we're donating $500 worth of lunch gear to a school chosen by you!

To nominate a school, leave a comment on Reusit's blog post, or visit our Facebook page and tell us about a school that could benefit from a $500 lunch gear donation. (Be sure that we can contact you via email from your comment or Facebook post in case your nominated school wins!)

We'll consider your suggestions and choose a winning school or class at the end of August.

Giving back is part of what we do - to date, we've donated over $200,000 to like-minded non-profits.
