Kourtney Kardashian calls out her kids’ school for serving unhealthy food & using plastic



If there’s anything I learned from volunteer work it’s that you have to figure out how and why things are done a certain way before you can make changes. Years ago I went to a social entrepreneurship conference. A guy told a story about a well-meaning firm spending a literal million dollars on a birth center outside a rural town in Nepal. No one from the firm had spent any time in the town, they just knew that they needed better local healthcare. The birth center was too far away, no one went to it, and it failed basically. The man who told the story had gone there for a few weeks and realized that giving the local doctor more resources and upgrading his facility would achieve results much cheaper. So they did that and were able to improve quality of life. Anyone can notice that change is needed, but the hard part is figuring out what already works and improving that using existing systems. Enter Kourtney Kardashian, who is complaining about the processed food at her kids’ school. She wrote this on her new lifestyle site, Poosh (which I still maintain should be called Koosh). It’s the most philanthropic content she’s posted, which truly isn’t saying much.

You don’t have to donate large sums of money, create a foundation, or cause a scene to chip away at little (or big) issues in the world, starting with your community. I’ve found that simply using my voice to stand up for small changes that add up to big impacts is so effective at not only creating change, but setting an example for my children.

I may not be the loudest or the most aggressive, but I’ve never been one to stand by and watch something I disagree with unfold. For example, it’s common knowledge these days that food is fuel. When it comes to my kids’ schools, seeing what kind of meals and snacks are provided can be unsettling … processed foods, less than fresh, inorganic produce, etc. But as moms, it’s in our power to raise some awareness and rally for healthier options.

I wasn’t satisfied with the food being served at my kids’ school, so I made sure that the principal knew my concerns. And I’ve continued to offer my two cents on everything from the type of milk they serve to their use of single-use plastic. It may seem annoying, but in the long run, I’m doing it for my children and their futures. Another idea is to suggest a pledge that the kids take (and teachers, too) to create less waste every year, or starting a petition that gets passed around the parents via email. Dialogue picks up momentum, and momentum stirs change.

I’m constantly sharing with my kids the importance of sustainability. While sometimes it feels like it’s “too late” for my own generation to get on the same page, we can form a new generation that is raised in awareness about the state of the world—a generation with fundamental values that promote sustainability. The other day, Penelope asked me why lotion comes in plastic bottles and, honestly, I didn’t have an answer for her. But I’m happy that she’s hearing my constant concerns for the amount of plastic we use on a daily basis, and she’s already asking the big questions.

While making sure my kids minimize their own footprint, I also like to let them hear me speak to restaurants that we go to about changing some of their wasteful practices. Encourage your local smoothie shop to do away with plastic straws, or your favorite dinner spot to opt for to-go packaging made from corn and other biodegradable materials. If you get pushback, try again, or try somewhere new with an open heart and mind. These small changes can snowball when your community takes the cue and does the same…

It may seem like change is out of your reach, but truly it’s within all of our grasp. I practice using my voice in my community in an effort to make improvements in our environment and health, and I truly feel like bringing my kids into the mission is the legacy I can leave behind. So if you feel small, speak up. Our voices are big.

This is coming from the woman who put her kids on gluten and dairy-free diet after “muscle testing.” It sounds superficially smart, so she surely had help with it, but it’s still dumb. First of all, she’s targeting her children’s school, which now has to deal with all the press and negative attention that comes along with that. Secondly, she’s doing this without doing a lick of research or even volunteering to serve lunch there one time. (I’m making that assumption, but given the self righteous way this is worded and the fact that she didn’t mention working with them, I think it’s the case. The photo accompanying this is of Kourtney in her living room.) Just put in a little legwork and see why the food is the way it is and why they’re using non-renewable products. Also, she’s selling sh-t at the end of this post, which I do too so I understand, but come on. Jamie Oliver spent months working with public schools in West Virginia and California trying to help them serve healthy food, as seen on his 2010 show, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. Even though he’s an experienced chef, did his research and had a team of people, he couldn’t do much in the end. All Kourtney is doing is bragging about complaining to her kids’ school. She wrote about using her voice, which is a start but takes the least amount of effort. That’s Kourtney’s whole brand.

    I kind of dislike her the most. She shills bullshit. I know they all do, but she acts like she’s on this insider knowledge about food being able to ‘fix you’. She pushes things like turmeric as a solution to SO many things when in reality unless you’re eating that by the spice bottle it’s not going to do a thing – and even if you were ingesting that much, there’s nothing conclusive to say that it WOULD help. And she’s SO self righteous about it.

    I really wouldn’t be surprised if she’s anti-vax.

  3. Roserose says:

    Bet she’s popular at school today.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    A bit inconsistent there on the use of plastics.

    • Celebitchy says:

      I wish I thought of this!

    • cherry says:

      LOL!!

    • lucy2 says:

      Right? I guess it’s ok when injected into people rather than landfills?

      I’m all for sustainability and being environmentally friendly, but I agree with the post, I bet she spent very little time trying to understand the system before declaring how it should go.

      Also, if you want to improve school lunches? VOTE. VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE. The current clown show rolled back Michelle Obama’s programs that helped schools. And if Kourtney thinks her wealthy private school isn’t up to snuff, she should go see some lower income schools and what they have to do.

      • Ky says:

        @lucy2 She does not care about low-income schools or public schools. Just the schools where her kids are. To be honest this doesn’t read like someone that is involved in their school’s parent council or PTA. Because this is the kind of program that easily finds support in that environment. It is a program that is not necessarily easy to implement but it is something you could easily get support for if you are involved in your school community. It sounds a lot like she wants to feel like she’s doing something but, doesn’t want to be committed to having to actually do something.

    • FHMom says:

      I know. Pot meet kettle. Unbelievable. It would be like Tom Cruise taking a stand against cults.

    • Kitten says:

      LOL

    • Agirlandherdog says:

      There’s that… and also the fact that her sisters get endorsement deals where they get PAID to advertise items in single use plastic. I appreciate the message (I’m always urging people to make more sustainable choices), but maybe look to your own house first.

      Plus, I’m sure her kids go to some super expensive private school. What kind of lunches are they serving that she doesn’t approve? And if you want your kids on a special diet, pack their lunch. Like I said, I appreciate the message, just seems a little tone deaf.

    • SarahLee says:

      Winner!

  5. Tushy says:

    Don’t her kids go to a private school that costs 15k-20k a year? I’m positive the meal plan for those kids is more than adequate. I know many schools near me struggle to meet nutrition standards AND serve a quantity to keep the kids fed.

    I get it….. i GET IT, but I just can’t muster an F to give about the food available in an elite private academy’s dining hall when the public school near me just ran a fundraiser at the end of the year to keep the tiny salad bar available because most of the kids are on reduced or free lunch and the food sent by the district that does meet the standards is too little food to fill these children who exist at a baseline of hungry.

    She could completely change the food landscape in 100 public schools with her financial resources, yet she is fighting for better food in the already rich people’s mouths.

    I can’t, I just can’t with this.

    • Celebitchy says:

      Here’s another angle I missed, good point!

    • cherry says:

      I know, I know, it’s unbearable to read her whole word salad-y piece. ‘I’m constantly sharing with my kids the importance of sustainability’- gimme a break rich white lady, you fly all around the world in private jets, live in homes that could house multiple families…

      • FHMom says:

        Unbearable is the best way to describe this. I hope the Interweb rips her a new one.

      • Tushy says:

        The school my kids attend needed to raise 5k to keep the free for everyone salad bar open for the kids. They raised 12k because local businesses got involved and are going to create a “needs” pantry inside the school with food and hygiene products since our local food bank is perpetually out of food and my area is almost entirely working poor. They can’t eat, but also don’t qualify for any assistance.

        In the grand scheme of things that is a small amount of money and probably what she spends on a pair of ergonomic organic crystal infused high waisted spirit guide shorts.

        I struggle to not hate people like this.

      • VintageS says:

        Don’t struggle. Just embrace it. She’s an idiot.

    • Kitten says:

      Everything you said and THIS: “She could completely change the food landscape in 100 public schools with her financial resources, yet she is fighting for better food in the already rich people’s mouths”. MTE.

      • Some chick says:

        And, that’s privilege, all day long: when you don’t have to care about anything that doesn’t directly affect you.

        I’d like to see her set up a foundation to improve school lunches everywhere – not just in Calabasas.

        OT but when I found out they all live in Calabasas I laughed my head off, because it means pumpkin. They all live in a pumpkin patch!

      • AnnaKist says:

        Bleh. She’s so full of shit. Firstly, I’m surprised her kids actually attend school. Secondly, I’d be more inclined to take her seriously if she practised what she preaches. How many photos have we seen of her and her kids drinking out of single-use cups with single-use plastic straws, or eating rubbish, or her kids carrying what look like just-bought toys encased in plastic? If she’s such a friend of the environment, she’d reduce her carbon footprint by not flitting off to exotic places so fluently, because I’m assuming she didn’t swim to all her holiday destinations. She’s concerned about what children are putting into their bodies – and rightly so – but is perfectly fine with filling her own body with all manner of chemicals to maintain her youth, and exposing her children to to the paid-for and monetised fakery of her entire family. She does not mention her or her family’s obscene consumerism. She won’t put her money where her mouth is. And don’t get me started on her leather garments or those ultra-expensive handbags she and her family favour, some of which are made from baby crocodiles, bred and killed especially to keep her and her ilk in leather goods, which are quickly cast aside and replaced with yet another like item as soon as a new trend appears. She’s a hypocrite, an idiot and she’s sickening. And are they new lips she’s got?

      • Anne Call says:

        I can just see and hear the meeting with a PR consultant and all these vapid sisters being told that they need to get “relevant and find a cause” to pretend to care about. A pr person obviously wrote that word salad (no pun intended). They knew their brand was getting stale and uninteresting, so voila they’re now going to be do gooders. Pr people probably had a list of suitable issues to become involved in…

    • Eliza says:

      She sounds mad that it’s not all organic or all home cooked. Probably doesn’t have enough non-dairy or gluten-free options that aren’t processed. Private schools do have better lunches, but it’s not gourmet. They still have budgets and food usually isn’t top of the list.

      You could eliminate waste AND provide the lunch you think is healthier by preparing it yourself in reusable containers and providing utensils and cloth napkins that are sent home to reuse. Surely?

    • Lizzie says:

      100%

    • HeyThere! says:

      TUSHY, 100% to everything you said!

    • @Backstage Bitchy says:

      @tushy
      All good points, but just wanted to clarify that private school in LA is more like $30k per year and for the “elite” ones, where her kids probably go, it’s up to $40+.
      PER YEAR.
      Meanwhile, UCLA is only like $20k per year for in-staters, so it seems like a bargain.

      My first thought on all of this was “how can any of these women look in the mirror and complain about plastic?”

    • Rose says:

      Shoot, some public schools in my state get the same “food” that is sold to prisons.

  6. Lydia says:

    Ohhh the irony of thinking that organic = sustainable. Organic is woefully inadequate for providing food for the world. As generally practiced today, it’s incredibly inefficient when compared with conventional farming. Oh andplusalso, there’s no solid evidence that organic does anything significantly better for our bodies.

    • Allie says:

      Oh my, where to begin…

      1. Organic food IS better for our bodies because it contains less pesticides. It’s not about nutrients.
      2. Organic farming reduces the amount of pesticides killing insects and animals. It does not contaminate the soil as much.
      3. Tons, and I mean TONS of food are thrown away each day which could basically feed the world. There is so much overproduction going on, it’s absurd.
      4. Also, tons of soy, corn and weed are wasted on meat and dairy production.

      Maybe we cannot feed the world with organic produce only but we definitely could raise its percentage to do so.

      • Tigerlily says:

        Allie: perhaps you should get your facts straight. Organic is one big lie. Unless an organic farm is on an 100% organic island somewhere there is no way anyone can certify products are organic. Farmer’s wife here….if an organic field has non organic neighbors the sprays etc blow onto the organic fields. And feeding the world on organic food? yeah right. But keep paying a premium for your “organic” food & keep feeling smug while the producers laugh at you.

      • jennifer says:

        @tiger, keep eating your non-organic produce and we’ll see who’s laughing at the end of the day

      • Kitten says:

        I have a fairly small urban garden on my enclosed patio. I use organic soil and I am currently growng kale, swiss chard, and a variety of herbs. Is that not organic? How is that not a cheaper and more sustainable way of producing and consuming food?

        Also, what if people (like myself) buy organic simply because it TASTES better? Can you sit here and tell me that the difference in appearance and flavor is all in my head?

        Honestly, if you think organic is one big lie then you’ve probably been duped by articles that are funded by Monsanto.

      • Jules says:

        @kitten, yup apparently Monsanto brainwashing is alive and well here.

    • jennifer says:

      what?! this is insane, get your facts straight please!

  7. TeddyPicker says:

    If she’d done her research, she would know that the single biggest thing she could do to reduce her family’s carbon footprint would be to stop flying. And yet she makes a living off posing in exotic locations…

  8. Millennial says:

    Well, if anyone can get things done, it’s rich people complaining. I’m sure she sends her kids to a private school that caters to the elite and if enough parents request it, it will absolutely get done.

    That being said, if you are going to complain and have as many resources as she does, also volunteer to lead the cause. Find a local compost farm willing to take the school on. Find a company (because all these schools contract out food supply) that will deliver organic. Whatever. But don’t just complain.

  9. Hellohello says:

    This is really rich coming from someone who flies private planes everywhere and uses more resources than some small towns. How noble to go complain to your children’s school. She should try supervising school lunch time for one day and see what it’s really like. And then maybe she can fund the changes that she’d like to see…and set an example by scaling back her own consuming.

    I used to teach in NYC schools. They are the second biggest consumer of styrofoam in the country due to the lunch trays they use. Schools can opt to switch to biodegradable trays that cost an extra 3 cents per tray. At the time at our school, that would be another $50000 a year. Maybe Kourtney would like to fund a school or multiple schools to switch? That would actually make a difference.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yes!

      There are also programs around the country to help pay off school lunch debt for low income children. She could help with that too, and then maybe the schools would have a bit more money to spend on quality food.

      • Some chick says:

        She probably accidentally washes her jeans with $50000 in the pocket.

        Someone should @ her on IG and remind her of this inconvenient truth.

        But campaigning against single use plastics? I’m down. Ain’t gonna fault her for that.

  10. Chaine says:

    “it’s common knowledge these days that food is fuel”—is this a #pippatip or what? “To keep up your energy throughout the day, consider eating some food”… also “And I’ve continued to offer my two cents on everything” hoooooh boy, I bet she is the parent that gives the principal and teachers their reason for wine o’clock. Dumb and obnoxious and all she is missing is the “I WANT TO SEE A MANAGER” hairdo.

  11. Bree says:

    I was just telling my husband the other day that I didn’t think we would be able to fix the planet not because of everyday folks like us but the super rich. I had just been on Instagram and seeing all these pics from the Kardashian family with their private jet rides, their multiple sprawling houses and all of their possessions. Instead of telling schools what they need to do to reduce their carbon footprint she needs to stop flying private and hanging out on private yachts.

  12. P says:

    Sooo… she is in a public restroom, naked, taking a pic…gross.

  13. Veronica S. says:

    Meanwhile, there are kids going hungry in the summer because three months without free school lunches is too high of a financial burden on impoverished families. Please shut up.

  14. Marigold says:

    The amount of plastic consumption (most one time use) her family alone achieves makes her an enormous hypocrite. Her brother in law makes plastic clothes all the time that her pumped-full-of-plastic sisters (and she) wear and toss ALL the time. She can google “knowledge” for a blog post but we can all google, too. Theirs is a family hell bent on creating waste.

  15. Lisa says:

    That is so annoying.

  16. OriginalLala says:

    What a hypocrite – if she is so concerned with sustainability why does she fly constantly? Why does she live a lifestyle so full of wanton materialism and conspicuous consumption? How many of her designer clothes are actually sustainably and ethically made?

    She could start a gardening program at the school, or better yet, in a working class neighborhood if she truly cared. Complaining and shaming isn’t actually helpful, especially when you’re part of the 0.01% that *could* affect change if you actually cared.

    • Tushy says:

      I guess mass consumption doesn’t count as long as it has sustainable or organic slapped on the label.

      I wonder how many square miles of deforestation all of those paper straws will need? Oh and yes lets grow more corn to make single use packaging. Especially since corn crops are particularly susceptible to disease and pests and are a major cause of groundwater contamination.

      All of these “sustainable” environmentally friendly products seem like they are just faster ways to screw over the earth.

      • Algernon says:

        So we shouldn’t try to do anything because there is no perfect solution to the problem? Paper straws are not perfect, but they biodegradable, often breaking down in just a matter of weeks, not the 200 years it takes a single plastic straw to degrade. If a paper straw ends up in the ocean, it will disintegrate rapidly and be less likely to harm wildlife. Since it’s made of wood pulp (and food-safe dyes if colored), no toxic material ends up in the water, again, better than plastic. Sourcing can be tricky, but there are FSC approved paper straws that use sustainable growing/reforestation practices. There are also bamboo straws on the market, which are even more sustainable. And stainless straws…or use no straw…

        People are also trying to decrease single-use packaging with things like bag taxes, so the need for corn crops should go down, too. It’s not perfect but at least we’re trying.

      • Tushy says:

        I hear that we are trying, but its just quicker ways to destructiveness. Trees take years ipon years to grow. Deforestation leaves more carbon and pollution in the air. Cutting down more trees isn’t a solution. Its just speeding up our problems.

        You don’t solve environmental problems by speeding up destruction of the planet. None of its good and trying isnt cutting it. Im not going to pat environmentalists on the back for helping by cutting Down trees and creating more demands for destructive crops that are ruining our drinking water TODAY.

        I don’t care about trying when its creating right now problems that make all the issues work. Helping isn’t helpful when it makes things worse.

      • Algernon says:

        What should we do, then? If trying isn’t worthwhile, what do you think we should do instead?

      • lucy2 says:

        It should be a combination of using LESS (don’t use a straw at all if you don’t need one, for examples) and what does need to be used needs to be made out of renewable or sustainable materials.

      • Kitten says:

        Use metal straws. Seriously.

      • Algernon says:

        @ Lucy2

        I stopped using straws and don’t miss them. I agree, using less, reusing, and going sustainable where possible is ideal. Some people, though, won’t give up straws. I’d rather those people use a paper one than a plastic one. It’s the lesser of two evils.

      • mosi says:

        U can get sustainable options, straw made out o straw (sic) for example ( much nicer than the metal ones taste-wise) or apple peels and pulp straws, bran straws, etc.

  17. My3cents says:

    I wonder if she uses her influence to reduce the huge environmental footprint her family causes?
    Her sisters sell crap that Im sure is not packaged in recycled environmentally friendly packaging. They promote a culture of excessive buying and lifestyle- you buy therefore you are, and I’m sure they all fly private.
    But sure Jan your kids school is the real villain here….

    • ME says:

      I don’t think she wrote that post at all. I have watched their show and that sounds NOTHING like her. This family is full of hypocrites. It’s what they do best.

  18. Kay says:

    There are 2 things I will never understand about America Firstly why this family became so rich and famous. And secondly why the Trumps are in the White House. 😕

  19. Mellie says:

    Am I reading this correctly is all she is doing is going to the school and bitching? Really? If you’re that concerned about waste, then do something? Just marching into the administration’s office and “offering your two cents” is not a solution. Publishing a long diatribe on your stupid blog is not a solution either. Her family is the epitome of waste, look at the parties they throw, the lifestyles they lead…but please, yes, let’s preach to an elementary school that uses plastic forks. Change begins at home.

    • Sonia says:

      Amen!

    • Kat says:

      Our local elementary school has created an amazing Green Team. We are a low to middle midde class neighborhood. The Green Team is run by parent volunteers (the PTA organizes this) and student volunteers. The kids are taught what they can recycle (which is a lot!) and where to put those recyclable items/ how to clean them if necessary. The parents then make sure the items get to where they need to be. Its amazing. They do regular and terracycling. The PTA also recycles pens from the school (highlighters, markers, white board markers, etc). My point? If she was that concerned about plastic and waste, she can physically get involved and do something. It’s work, for sure, but she has the resources. If working parents in my neighborhood can get together to do it at our achool, I’m positive she can get parents together at her school to create some meaningful change.

      • lucy2 says:

        But that would take time away from her posing for half naked selfies!

        In all seriousness that sounds like a great program, and I think the younger generations are going to be so much kinder to the earth, if they inherit anything savable.

    • Turtledove says:

      “Am I reading this correctly is all she is doing is going to the school and bitching?”

      Yes. That is EXACTLY what you are reading. She is patting herself on the back for bitching at her kids school. Ridiculous. The kind of $ she has…she could actually do SO much good…but instead, she is bitching at a school.

      Don’t like the food and utensils your kid’s school uses for lunches? Have your kid take lunch to school with re-usable containers etc. This is not always an option…..as there are MANY kids in this country that rely on their free lunch at school and sometimes don’t eat otherwise. But it sure as hell is an option for the Kardashians. Heck…Kourtney likely wouldn’t even have to deal with the shopping/prep/packing. She could have the hired help do it.

  20. VintageS says:

    I really like the part about “minimizing their footprint”. Huh.

  21. Cwcwt says:

    Bitch you know it’s summer right? What are you doing complaining about this shit for oh yeah it’s just made up. Your kids don’t even go to school right aren’t they home schooled? And my kids went to Calabasas schools private and public and no one has a cafeteria that actually makes food it’s all just brought in locally from places or you bring your own.

    • ravynrobyn says:

      Really no actual cafeterias? That’s fu**ing heartbreaking. I’m 59, have no kids and my nieces and nephews are out of school. I really had no idea!

      From the ideas from posters here I’m going to contact my local elementary school and see if I can’t pay off at least a couple of student’s lunch debt. At least that’s a (small) start.

      Thanks to all for opening my eyes. The thought of just one innocent sweet child being hungry…

  22. jennifer says:

    looks like kim’s face with khloe’s new nose plopped on it.

  23. JennyJenny says:

    Thank goodness I learned about all this today!
    After wasting all those years in Nursing school, I should have just studied the “Kooch Poosh” of a Kardashian.
    ‘Food is fuel’ ~ make note of it people!

  24. ME says:

    First of all, why is this all put on the “moms”? Dads can care about what their kids eat too. Also, it’s kind of rich for Kourtney to pretend to care about the environment when she and her family use nothing but private jets and every time I watch the show Kourtney is eating a salad out of a plastic box !!! This family has the hugest carbon footprint.

  25. crass says:

    Hypocrisy, thy name is kardashian.

  26. stacey says:

    HAHA she wrote a blog about reducing her family foot print. LOL how cute.

    They are famous for their obscene consumption and excess, give me a break.

    Harps about kids using plastic forks but will fly on a private jet.

    Points out cosmetics come in plastic bottles and thats bad but then shills products in plastic bottles on her website Poosh. Sure ok Jan.

    I think she is too stupid to see the hypocrisy in her post.

  27. Sticks says:

    “Inorganic produce” 😂

  28. Fluffy Princess says:

    Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. I just want to insert the hugest eye roll here, for poor, poor Ms. Kourtney. Every time she opens her mouth it’s to complain. Complain about sustainability, school food, what a burden it is to do her TV show and make $$$$ out the ass, because folks, you know–she’s just a simple person who just wants to walk away from it all and be a mom. That’s all. Just wants to be a mom and live her life. . .THEN DO IT. Quit the show, quit your pap strolls with your family, and do a Rob Kardashian…but wait, he’s not as rich as all of you is he? Nooooo, socks don’t pay the bills like Instagram ads and sponsorships do. They all need to get over themselves.

  29. serena says:

    I agree with her on the plastic matter, the food though is a whole different problem that needs more insight tbh.

  30. Ann says:

    I’m usually a Kardashian apologist but there’s no defending this, specifically her bitching about plastic. They eat salads in single use plastic bowls on the show all the time. Kim and Kylie both have cosmetics lines that use tons of plastic. This is some hypocritical BS.

    Dear Lord, I can’t even. Yeah, I’m gonna go complain to my son’s school because the fruit is not organic when they can barely keep up with the expenses they have now, they can’t even pay their teachers a decent salary? Suuuure. My son actually homeschools right now (don’t judge, I’m not THAT kind of homeschooler, it’s a secular curriculum and he just had problems focusing without one-on-one attention and space, he’s on the spectrum), but when he was, I never would’ve even considered doing something like that. Here’s an idea, Kourt, put the makeup brush and the phone for a minute and pack their lunches if you don’t like the school lunch. It’s not like you’re
    a normal mom who may be busy and not have time. Get the nanny to do it.

    Perhaps she can donate the services of her team of personal chefs, and she can pay for the food for all of the kids. Otherwise, girl needs to zip it.

    Sustainability ? Multiple vacations in private jets every year ? What’s her carbon footprint ? What a joke..

  34. SJR says:

    A Kardashian calls out someone for using plastic?
    What? Woman, please. You and your entire family are full of fillers and/or implants.
    Get over yourselves. Get off the tv/Internet completely. STFU and find a useful way to sprnd your money and time.

    Ryan Seacrest, you piece of garbage. I blame you for unleashing this stupid family on us.
    Be gone at once!

    Why not deal with what happens in your home first ? I am pretty sure the environmental would benefit if she and her whole family downgraded their behemoth houses, stopped flying private, and practiced what she preaches at home. I am pretty sure the lot of them pollute more than an average city in a less developed country.

    I find it rich a Kardashian is telling people to be better, take your own advice hypocrite

    This is more a comment on lunch options than Kourtney.
    So several years ago our school district and our local group of organic farmers all banded together to figure out a better solution to school lunches. Our lunches are now made with all organic local produce, regular vegetarian options and fresh fruits and vegetables with every meal. They were being made several hours away, packaged individually and shipped to our rural community. Now they are made here in town served out of big serving trays to the kids plates. So much less garbage a fuel used!

    There are still kids favorites (pizza day!). This costs us 35 cents more per meal than what we were paying. (No change for low income families). We voted heavily in favor of the change. The only problem is we have had to change how hot lunch is served because the number of kids ordering tripled!

    I was one of the skeptics thinking it would be too expensive and not practical but I have changed my mind. My kids get a big salad every day. Organic fresh produce is their norm now. We started with one school district and now most of our county is using the same program. Thanks to good local leaders and farmers who really wanted to make it work.

    For years before we could get this started the same farmers stocked a produce cart at the school with great produce available most weeks for kids to snack on or bring home. Free or donation accepted. And they have the kids spend a couple of days each at a teaching farm doing work so they really know where their food is coming from.

    I hate to in any way side with a Kardashian. And I’m really not because this was over a decade of work to build the needed farms and connections. It is more of an encouraging example of what can happen if you want to do more than gripe about it on the internet. (Which frankly is going to do squat to improve your kids school).

    She (and her family) has the ability to fund a hundred food desert schools around LA for kids that get one meal a day. But they don’t. STFU

  39. Emily says:

    Does everyone in the Kardashian’s orbit have the same face? She looks like Sophia Richie here.

  40. Earthbound says:

    I dont like theKardashians, but that said – complaining about crappy highly processed food and single use plastics is a good thing. Our freaking planet is on the brink.

  41. Debra Horn says:

    Can they just all go away? Please?

  42. Eda says:

    You know what the opposite of sustainability is?

    Consumerism.

    And the Kardashians (all of them) are the poster people for consumerism.

    Though the hypocrisy is blinding, that would be one small place where Kourtney could start.

  43. Trashaddict says:

    I love you Celebitchies for keeping it real! And being funny as hell at the same time! And also wonderful.

  44. Fran says:

    coming from a family that owns more cars they need (and the most polluting ones!!!), who keeps travelling anywhere and anytime by private jets (more pollution…), and keep producing make-up which I bet has an ecological impact equal if not worse than the single use plastic cups she’s complaining about. WHAT A USELESS IDIOT.

  45. sammiches says:

    I’m sure the workers making minimum wage at Booster Juice are super stoked to have to listen to her bitching about their use of straws, as if they have any say in it.

    Also, someone with three kids talking about minimizing their footprint is RICH.
