Earth Day Lunchbox Action

Posted By Beth Terry On April 17, 2012 @ 9:36 am In Contests and Giveaways,Direct Action,Events,Expired | 32 Comments

[1]What are you doing this Friday, the Friday before Earth Day?  Wherever you are, you’ll need to eat lunch, right?  Why not participate in the Lunchbox Project Day of Action [2]?  The action is centered in San Francisco, but I am extending it to anyone anywhere who wants join in. What’s more, LunchBots [3] has offered to give away a free LunchBots stainless steel container to a random participant to encourage participation in this unprecendented event.  Depending on where you work or live, there are two ways to participate:

Lunchbox Project Flash Mob at Crocker Galleria

In coordination with the City of San Francisco’s Department of Environment, The Lunchbox Project will hold an action and rally on April 20 at the Crocker Galleria food court [4] in downtown San Francisco near the Montgomery BART station.  Come at noon with your reusable container.  Join others all ordering lunch in our own containers and stay for some inspirational talks and surprises.  I’ll be there.  I may even wear the plastic sea monster costume if enough of you say you will come!  Let’s show downtown SF how to eat lunch the truly sustainable way.  After all, while SF has gone a long way to ensure take-out ware is either compostable or recyclable, no disposable packaging at all is better than either of those options!


Join the Lunchbox Project wherever you live!

If you don’t live or work near downtown San Francisco, bring your own container wherever you happen to be.  Encourage friends and co-workers to do it with you.  Send your kids to school with reusable containers.  If you don’t want to eat out, you can pack your own lunch in your own container, but the idea is to be seen and make an impact, so don’t hide in your cubicle to eat your PB&J.  Let others see you!http://myplasticfreelife.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=6144&action=edit#post_name [5]
