Ready to make more mindful decisions around the home? Embracing a more sustainable existence isn’t as challenging as you may think, especially when it comes to the kitchen. It doesn’t take much to transform the heart of the home into an eco-friendly space, it’s down to just a few simple tweaks…
The cleaning cupboard
‘Clean’ cleaning options have never been quite so chic – those non-negotiables that turn to essential oils and the like instead of harsh chemicals. Instead of reaching for the bleach, pay some attention to the likes of the non-toxic Bondi Wash, manufactured locally and made free from harmful ingredients, and Dr Bronner’s vegan Pure Castile Soap range.
The grocery bags
Long gone are the days of flimsy plastic towing your groceries – it’s about time you chose something reusable, not only because it’s better for the environment to say no to single-use plastics, but it’s also far more chic. Straw market totes in every shape and size are durable ways to carry your fruit and veg from stall to the chopping block. Though who can argue with the convenience of a relaxed (and more sustainable) linen tote, like the roomy options from IN BED that can easily fold into your handbag.
Even most of your food storage can be made green in a flash. Replace single-use plastic wrap with genius creations like reusable stretch lids – a silicone stopper that can reach its way across the top of bowls, plates and even cut fruit. Organic cotton mesh produce bags are another easy plastic-free way to group your goods together, and when you’re on the go, Gorman’s collection of cooler bags made using recycled polyester will help keep your food fresh for longer.
