- Litter free living Schools
Litter Free Living is founded by Kylie Etheridge, a qualified primary school teacher and now a stay at home mum of 3. Kylie saw first-hand the litter children brought to school in their lunches and decided that her children could have healthy lunches without negatively affecting the environment. She did not like putting packaged foods into her children’s lunch boxes and opted for homemade snacks.
However, storing lunch foods and snacks in plastic containers were tricky for her young children to open by themselves, lids were being lost and she was not able to fit all the containers into the lunch boxes. Due to this she designed and handmade reusable sandwich wraps and sandwich and snack bags and was asked by friends to make and sell. Within 12 months Kylie sourced a supplier and started Litter Free Living so she could develop more products which would allow her family and other families to reduce their use of disposable plastic.
How does Litter Free Living help the environment?
All products have been thoroughly researched and are all PVC-free, phthalate, BPA free and non-toxic. All the products have been designed to help replace disposable items which will end up in landfill. The Litter Free Living sandwich wrap and lunch bag sets have been designed to be useful for every age and other products have been designed to be useful for every household.
Limited packaging has been used in transporting these products and each order is sent wrapped in 100% recycled/recyclable paper. Litter Free Living strives to keep the price affordable for all families. All business decisions, either big or small, are evaluated with the impact they will have on the environment and our goal is to help families reduce their waste and therefore reduce landfill.
