Let’s look at our lifestyle room by room, habit by habit to make our life more sustainable for us and the planet.  

Kitchen:  

There are several ways to make our kitchen more sustainable and low waste.

kitchen alternatives

a. One big swap is to start by getting rid of all or any plastic you may have. This means swapping plastic Tupperware (once its’ of no use) for glass containers. However keep in mind, you don’t have to discard everything at once and get glass containers instead. Do it systematically and planned so that it doesn’t end up getting overwhelming for you.

b. You can swap plastic bags for cotton reusable bags when you go to buy your groceries.

c. Also stop using the throw away paper towels in favor of reusable napkins and reusable towels.

d. Also opt for eco-friendly and non-toxic dishwashing bars by the Tangieco for cleaning your vessels to experience clean, non toxic cleaning.  

Every step is small but it goes a long way towards creating a fresh habit. Once you have initiated these swaps, your kitchen will feel green without those sneaky plastic items.
