SC Johnson Invites Families to Save Money by Packing Their Lunch

The Family Company Offers 5 “Zip-Tips” to Make Packing Lunch Easier

In celebration of National Pack Your Lunch Day, SC Johnson supports the cost-saving ritual of packing your lunch.

According to a 2016 Ziploc® brand survey, only 1 in 4 working Americans bring their lunch every day.

RACINE, Wis., March 10, 2017 – A $5 lunch, when purchased daily, can add up to about $1,500 annually. Packing your lunch sounds like a simple way to save money, yet according to a 2016 Ziploc® brand survey* only 1 in 4 working Americans bring their lunch every day.

In celebration of National Pack Your Lunch Day, SC Johnson, the maker of trusted household products like Ziploc® and Saran™ Wrap, today announced its support of one of the easiest daily cost-saving rituals, packing your lunch.

The top three reasons cited for not bringing a lunch include: forgetting to pack a lunch, not having enough time to pack a lunch and the belief that going out to lunch is more fun than packing a lunch.

SC Johnson shares the following “Zip-Tips” to help families achieve lunch-bringing success:

  • Set a daily, reoccurring reminder on your phone to pack your lunch
  • Place your keys in the fridge, on top of your packed lunch, so you don’t forget
  • Regularly change your sack lunch menu, avoiding middle-of-the-day munching monotony
  • Pre-package lunch items on Sunday night, leaving one less thing to do during the week
  • Label each lunch bag or container, ensuring you take the right one
