April 22 is Earth Day, which is just around the corner, and I’m starting to feel the sudden urge to do more on my end in terms of going green.I always feel like there’s a lot more I can do, and as someone who loves to cook – I took a look around my own kitchen and realized there are many ways I can make it more eco-friendly. So, I went on the hunt for a few items to help me reach my goal.
Here are a few of the things I found that are not just really cool to have – they’re also affordable!
This heavy-duty cutting board is manufactured from a teak wood plantation and grown in accordance with strict environmental and social considerations. The light and dark contrast gives this cutting board a gorgeous look and makes it a perfect housewarming party gift.
Warmer weather is here, which means my kids and I will be making lots of fruit smoothies at home. Instead of wasting tons of straws, here’s a brilliant idea – why not use re-usable ones?! Set of 4 Pot Scrapers, $8
Instead of using disposable sponges, give these scrapers a try! Made of organic bamboo, they are lightweight and can remove stubborn food, candle wax or any dirt around the house.
If you love preserved foods (and I don’t mean just pickles – my grandparents used to preserve everything, from watermelon to lettuce!) then this kit is a sure way to know what’s inside your canned foods. Plus pickled vegetables and jellies make beautiful home-made gifts!
Not only do these beautiful glasses help the environment by re-using wine bottles, they are also less likely to crack, chip or break because they are stronger and more durable than standard manufactured glasses.
What are your favorite eco-friendly kitchen items?
