I don’t have to tell you the most used area in your house is the KITCHEN.
So, let’s look at some ways to make it a little more SUSTAINABLE simply by making some different choices.
1. INSTEAD OF: Paper Towels
TRY: Microfiber Cloths – You’ll save so much by NOT buying paper towels. Plus you don’t need them! Our planet’s trees will thank you.
2. INSTEAD OF: Buying Plastic Ziploc Bags
TRY: Reusing Plastic Bags from Food and Using a Bag Dryer – I use mine all the time and never have a problem finding a bag as I reuse cereal bags, package food bags etc.
3. INSTEAD OF: Using Chemical Kitchen Cleaners
TRY: Microfiber cloths and your own homemade cleaner – It’s TRUE! You don’t need CHEMICALS to clean your house! It’s all marketing and fear tactics. Instead of polluting your home, only use VINEGAR, water and microfiber cloths.
4. INSTEAD OF: Buying a Spray Oil
TRY: A Refillable Oil Bottle– Think of how much money you’ll save!
6. INSTEAD OF: Buying Fruits/Vegetables from Other Countries
TRY: Only eating locally and in season – do you REALLY need to eat watermelon every day?
7. INSTEAD OF: Throwing out your Food Waste
TRY: Composting It – less greenhouse gas on the planet due to food waste is a good thing.
***8. INSTEAD OF: Using Plastic Containers and Plastic Wrap
TRY: Using Glass Containers and ABEEGO BEESWAX WRAPS – To avoid plastic leaching into food, use only glass containers for food. And my NEW discovery…. Abeego Beeswax Wraps!
MY REVIEW: ABEEGO BEESWAX WRAPS
Don’t you hate it when you’re putting away the leftovers and you can’t find LIDS to containers???
Well, do I have a solution! Victoria, B.C. based company, Abeego Beeswax Wraps has the answer. These easy to use wraps are perfect! They come in a variety of sizes, affordable and work very well. Just place over the container and mold the wrap to your container. Done. The food stays fresher longer and you can re-use the wraps for up to a year. You can use then anywhere you would use plastic wrap. But this is way better for the environment as you can compost the wraps after using them for a year. What could be better?
I ADORE my wraps and highly recommend them.
