Why You Should Celebrate Brown Bag it Day

May 24, 2017

Tired of the same old takeout lunches? Do you spend a fortune each day eating out? Then try brown bagging it! It’s not only cost-effective, but it’s the best way to ensure you’re getting the nutrients you need. So if you are bored with the same old food options, here are just some of the reasons why tomorrow you should be celebrating National Brown Bag it Day:

It’s a Nice Change of Pace

You’re in control of what you can bring which means you no longer have to settle for what is offered or sold near you. Packing healthy snacks and well-balanced meals will also keep you full throughout the day and decreases your chances of over ordering and overeating.

It Saves You Time

A prepackaged lunch means you have more time to enjoy it. No need to wait in line or travel to pick it up. You’ll also have extra time to focus on your work since you won’t be debating about what you want to eat.


You’re in control of what your food is stored in which means you can avoid waste such as styrofoam containers and disposable cups. Using insulated lunch bags along with reusable containers will not only help stop unnecessary waste but prevent pollution and conserve natural resources. So why not enjoy a delicious homemade meal while helping the environment too?
