5 Eco-Friendly Kitchen Products That Are Better Than Alternatives
Reducing your environmental impact starts at home, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. You can reduce your environmental footprint just by making small changes to the products you use in your daily life. Here are some simple product swaps you can make in your kitchen, many of which are superior to non eco-friendly alternatives.
Beeswax wraps are used to wrap up leftover food to keep it fresher for longer. They are washable, reusable, and can be moulded to fit around many different sizes of food and containers. Plus, you won’t have to deal with the wrangling sticky saran wrap anymore.
Silicone snack bags
Stop throwing away money on single-use snack and sandwich bags and try out a food-grade silicone bag instead. They are lightweight, sealable, resistant to damage, and can even be washed in the dishwasher.
Natural cleaning products
Harsh chemicals in standard cleaning products can get into the water system, wear down surfaces, and irritate your skin. Opting for natural, plant-based cleaning products will allow you to clean up your kitchen just as well with gentler ingredients and a more pleasant scent.
Reusable coffee filter
If you’re someone who can’t start their day without a cup of coffee, you probably go through a ton of coffee filters. A stainless steel mesh basket coffee filter will produce the same cup of coffee, eliminates waste and is dishwasher-friendly.
Silicone baking mats
If you’re an avid baker, you may find yourself quickly going through rolls of parchment paper. Try making a swap to a high-quality food-grade silicone mat that can be cleaned and reused over and over. This eco-friendly option also does a great job of protecting your baking sheets and even creates a more even cooking surface for your food.
