Waste-Free Challenge for Schools

School Program

Every year, a child using a disposable lunch creates 67 pounds of waste. Kick the habit of disposable bags, plastic bottles and packaged foods. Help your school go waste-free and reduce trash in our landfills and oceans. To learn how, see details below:
  1. Offer a 20% OFF COUPON CODE to families
    Offer a coupon code to families at school 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. Items are shipped directly to the customer.
  2. Have a WASTE-FREE LUNCH SALE at school
    Promote the zero-waste message and help your school reduce lunch-packing waste by having a waste-free lunch sale after school, at an event or as part of a fundraiser. Itís easy! Order at ukonserve.comm using a coupon code (see below). During your sale you can either pass on the discount to the families, or sell products at full price and keep the profits as a fundraiseróthatís up to you.
