Waste-Free Challenge for Schools

School Discount & Fundraising

Every year, a child using a disposable lunch creates 67 pounds of waste. Kick the habit of plastic baggies and packaged foods, help your school go waste-free, and reduce trash in our landfills and oceans! Hereís how:
  1. Pass on a 20% DISCOUNT to school families
    Offer a coupon code by including our Parent Flier in your school newsletter, on classroom bulletin boards or in back-to-school packets. Parents order directly at ukonserve.com and receive 20% off all orders (and free shipping over $50). Items are shipped directly to the customer.
  2. FUNDRAISE BY EARNING 25% of every purchase for your school
    Raise money with conscious brands through our partner Givalry. Sign up your school, let people know, then sit back and earn 25% back on every order.
    • 25% of every dollar spent goes to your school (or organization)
    • A wide range of purpose-driven brands to choose from, including U-Konserve!
    • Earnings are deposited directly into your account every quarter
    • Get up-to-date fundraising results on Givalry online dashboard
    • Products are sent directly to the buyer
    • No fees to signup or at any time throughout the fundraiser
    • Free shipping on all orders over $59
  3. Have a WASTE-FREE LUNCH SALE at school
    Promote the zero-waste message and help your school reduce waste by having a waste-free lunch sale at school. Order stock at ukonserve.com using a coupon code (see below). You can either pass on the discount to families, or sell products at full price and keep the profits as a fundraiseróthatís up to you.
