Each year the U.S. consumes over 380 billion plastic bags, sacks and wraps. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, aluminum foil and other plastic enclosures account for 400,000 tons of our nation’s municipal solid waste stream. Only 10% of that was recovered or recycled, leaving 360,000 tons of waste in the landfills.
Lunch-time trash is second only to office paper as the leading source of school waste. It's also estimated that a disposable lunch costs $4.02 per day, versus $2.65 for a waste-free lunch."
Perfect Sandwich eliminates the need for costly disposable bags, plastic and aluminum wraps, styrofoam and other food storage solutions by providing a reusable, self-cooling container to transport your food. When you choose Perfect Sandwich to transport lunches to school, work or play, you are doing your part to help save the environment.
Environmental issues can take years to reverse and effort on the part of us all is required to change our habits. Incorporating Perfect Sandwich into your lifestyle makes for an easy answer to this challenge.
Nutrition in a Busy World
With Perfect Sandwich, a new twist on the old brown bag lunch could be your ticket to nutritional success during the day. “Making a brown bag lunch is helpful because you can control what you put in it,” says Donna L. Weihofen, RD, MS, a nutritionist at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in Madison. (www.everydayhealth.com)
You control the ingredients and therefore you control the calories and portion size that go into your Perfect Sandwich brown bag lunch. Since portion distortion, is a significant contributor to diet failure and weight gain, portions can be kept in check while keeping your ingredients from spoiling with the PerfectCHILL technology. Lunch becomes safer, easier and aides in weight control using the Perfect Sandwich - it’s the new way to “brown bag!”
Of course the right portions go hand-in-hand with the right nutrition. According to the USDA, children and adults need at least 3-4 ounces of grains, 1 cup for children and up to 3 cups for adults of vegetables, and 2 ounces or more of lean meats or vegetable protein for children and up to 5 ounces for adults. To ensure that these basic requirements are being met, a sandwich with whole grains, lots of colorful vegetables and lean protein is a good choice! If you have special dietary considerations such as packing a gluten-free, vegetarian or low-carbohydrate lunch, Perfect Sandwich makes it effortless to eat just what you want while on the go. “People consciously select foods with three things in mind: health, taste, and convenience,” said Georgia Kostas, M.P.H., R.D., L.D., director of nutrition at the Cooper Clinic, a division of Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas. “Today’s consumers want foods that help them achieve healthier lifestyles without sacrificing time and taste, so sandwiches are a natural fit.”
