How to make a Zero Waste Lunch

As you may know, Max is in 5th grade. As part of his classwork, he was asked to create a blog, and he chose "Environmental Tips" as a subject. He was then asked to give a short "How to" speech to the class. So here he is on "How to make a Zero Waste Lunch"...

PS: Max recently went on his outdoor education trip. His wonderful teacher proudly announced that her grade received the record for the number of zero waste meals at the facility. During that trip, Max also joined the Hard Core club. Members of the club eat a whole apple (core, stem, seeds and all), and share a secret hand-shake. Love the concept. I joined the club too, but I have already forgotten the hand-shake ;)
