Reduced Plastic Lunch Day-April 16, 2024

April 16

All-Day Event

On Tuesday, April 16, 2024, the ORCSD Sustainability Committee will be hosting a reduced plastic day and join school cafeterias across the US, including the nation's largest school districts, in a nationwide initiative to reduce plastic foodware and packaging. Our lunches will be served with limited single-use plastic foodware and packaging.

Students who bring their own lunch to school are invited to participate by bringing a lunch free of single-use plastic packaging. You may find some ideas below.

  • Bring your own reusable water bottle 
  • Bring your food in reusable containers 
  • Bring a reusable fork or spoon if needed 
  • Bring a reusable lunch bag 
  • Try to skip single packaged chips, candy, juice pouches, etc. on April 16. 
  • Be creative with your reusables! No need to buy fancy containers. Look around your kitchen for to-go containers that can be reused. It can be plastic as long as it’s reusable.
