New Research Shows How Parents Can Save Over $400 Per Child Per School Year with Reusable, Waste-Free Lunches

Plantation, FL (PRWEB) August 13, 2014

Wild Mint, an eco-friendly, healthy living company, has released a Lunch Savers guide to help inform parents on ways they can save money, their health, and the environment with reusable, waste-free lunches this back to school season. The guide contains research about the differences between a disposable lunch, containing materials such as plastic baggies, paper napkins and disposable bottles, and a reusable, waste-free lunch, where everything can be eaten, reused, recycled or composted.

One of their most striking findings is that parents can save over $ 400 per child per school year by packing a reusable, waste-free lunch over a disposable one. When it comes to lunch gear, choosing reusable contents can help parents save money over time by only having to purchase the products once instead of the purchase-then-toss cycle that results from disposable gear. Monetary savings can also come from the food packed in a reusable lunch. For example, parents can save money by purchasing a large box of crackers instead of individual packs, a jar of juice instead of juice boxes, and fresh cut fruit instead of fruit cups.

The guide also details numerous health and environmental benefits for families who forgo disposable lunches for healthier, reusable ones:

ItaliaRail Explores the Largest Train Stations in Italy


Somerville, MA (PRWEB) July 15, 2014

The larger train stations in Italy are well-equipped to handle passengers needs with an array of amenities including pharmacies, banks, fitness centers, WIFI access and more. And now a free app called Around Station offers information on places to eat, how to get to the Metro or ticket office, and how to navigate the station in general. ItaliaRail provides the scoop on the big three:

Roma Termini, Rome

Roma Termini, the main train station in Rome, is the transportation hub of the city, the largest train station in Italy, and the second largest train station in Europe. It is here that the main Metro (subway) lines converge, trains leave and arrive from destinations within Italy and other countries in Europe, and the Leonardo Express train runs to and from the airport. With about 480,000 people buzzing through on any given day, its a busy place. The Termini boasts over 100 retail shops with everything from a pharmacy, to a post office, to a large bookstore (that sells books in English), and even a health club. If time permits, Bar Fondi, on Via Milazzo just a couple of blocks from the Termini, boasts some of the best espresso and cappuccino in Rome, not to mention delicious pastries and cakes.

Interesting factoid: On December 23rd 2006, in an official ceremony, Termini Station was dedicated to Pope John Paul II.

Milano Centrale, Milan

Italys second largest train station is truly a reflection of the city it services, with gorgeous high-end boutiques for the fashion-minded and high-tech amenities for business travelers. Its majestic architecture and many sculptures make it a destination in and of itself. Online reviews consistently report it is one of the most beautiful and efficient train stations in Europe. Travelers need not leave the station to find an array of shoes and apparel shops from internationally well-known brands such as Zara and Mango to Italian-made product stores like Carpisa and Geox. Milano Centrale even has an in-house chapel, for quiet reflection time. The exclusive Salmoiraghi & Vigan
