Giveaway Alert! Litter Free Lunches is giving TWO lucky readers their very own set (of 5) of reusable cloth napkins. (Valued at $19.99 each) ECO-ngratulations to Tamara and Bonggamom! You are winners!
Who can tell me what material makes up the most of our trash each day? PAPER! One of the easiest ways to reduce our paper waste is by switching to reusable napkins, especially in our children’s lunches. It is estimated that if a family of 4 replaces paper napkins with cloth napkins that they can save over $70 a year AND reduce their paper waste by 40 pounds.
Litter Free Lunch is a company that was founded by a pair of moms in Illinois. The offer a full line of napkins, including their newest, an organic cotton set. Each set of napkins is made in the USA. They are made of 100% cotton (or organic cotton) and measure 12″ X 12″ in size. Each individual napkin has a sewn-in label with space for you to write your child’s name. The napkins are machine washable. In addition to cloth napkins, Litter Free Lunch also sells recycled lunch bags, stainless steel food containers, and water bottles.
Big B now has a wide variety of cloth napkins to use both at home and at school. Today I asked him if he used his napkin and he said, “No!” Upon inspection I could tell that he was acting like a normal first grader and that he actually did use it. He’s a boy and doesn’t usually get too excited about these things but hopefully his friends will take notice and ask their moms for their own cloth napkins. Litter Free Lunch napkins are great quality and have some really cute embroidered designs.
An extra bonus is that Litter Free Lunch also offers fundraising options for your school. You can download their fundraising packet from their website and present it to your child’s school.

Wow I really like the organic napkins best, but the kids would vote for the sports ones. We use wrap mats right now and really like them. I think the size of these napkins are perfect.
My favorite is actually the Brights! Second would be the primary set.
I follow you both. graygirly

My DD is in kindergarten and loves to find ways to be green. She would love to take some awesome cloth napkins to school. She’d let all of her friends know that she was helping to save the planet.
My favorite set is the lavender, and my second favorite would have to be the sunflowers. : )
