, , 28 Comments

Contemporary-country-style-kitchen1I 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. 

 

enviro and window

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.

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.

    I love my abeegos! It’s time to replace them, though, as they’re no longer doing the trick. They have been a great addition to my kitchen!

    I’m so glad I saw this post Michele, I love the idea of using the abeego wraps instead of plastic wrap how wonderful I had never heard of these until now. Always wonderful to stop by your site thanks.

    I would love to try these. Food storage in the fridge has been a dilemna for me now that I won’t buy any plastic wrap because I have really missed the convenience of it. This sounds like a great alternative.
