Packed lunch packaging

My daughter takes packed lunches to school and I'm noticing how many plastic sandwich bags we're getting through.
My mum used to wash and reuse them but I would prefer not to do that as it's a faff and means there are always bags drying on the side.
Does anyone have alternative suggestions? I guess just something to wrap sandwiches in, as other stuff can either be loose in the lunchbox or I can use little pots.

Kitchen roll?
Grease proof paper?
Cloth napkin/baggy?

we use onya bags sandwich wraps - gingham material with a plastic lining that can be wiped clean every evening. we also use smash (i think, i'll google in a sec) containers that screw together for yoghurt and dried fruit. bit of a pain to wash, but better than daily yoghurt containers, and we'd still need something for the fruit.

We use fabric reusable sandwich wraps too.
Not to pricey on ebay

Just wrap them in cling film confused

We use sistema sandwich boxes. Different colour for each person. They stop the sandwich getting squashed but are shallow enough to keep the sandwich held together. My kids put their other rubbish eg fruit peel inside the box afterwards to keep the inside of the lunch box a bit cleaner.
