In the United States, approximately 50% of the plastic used in the household is used once before it is thrown away. This statistic alone can paint a picture for any family regarding their use of ... disposable containers and how it can affect the earth. Between plastic straws, single serve coffee cups, lunch bags, and water bottles, landfills are becoming a collection of products used only one time before it becomes trash. This is why the company U Konserve was developed. U Konserve is attempting to improve the environment by reducing the collection of plastics and other materials that are not environmentally-friendly by providing a wide range of reusable products including lunch packaging and food storage. Waste-free solutions such as these can help us improve the environment, reduce the amount of waste in landfills, and therefore provide our children with a better planet. The U Konserve brand is known for a variety of offerings, and provides a large range of food and drink containers including lunch totes and sacks, ice packs, food bags and wraps, and bottles.
