As you might already know, many common household products are wasteful and costly. We also know habits can be hard to break. Eating healthy is one thing, but a total rehaul of not only your kitchen products but also your cleaning habits? Now that just seems downright impossible, right?
It might seem like an overwhelming task, but going plastic-free and having a more eco-friendly kitchen is actually a lot easier than you might think. All it takes are a few small, inexpensive swaps — at least to start.
So, if the new spring season means a healthier and more environmentally conscious version of yourself, then this list is for you. Making a few kitchen swaps is a natural extension of spring cleaning anyways, so it won’t feel like that much extra work.
From stylish food storage silicone bags to replace those single-use plastic ones and reusable coffee pods to replacing your Teflon cookware with a gorgeous, non-toxic version by Our Place and switching to recycled trash bags, these swaps will make your life even easier and the environment so much happier — not to mention they’ll save you money in the long-run.
