6 Ways to be Make Your Kitchen More Eco-Friendly
Supporting local businesses is also very sustainable for the environment. Buying local means your food doesn’t have to travel as far to get to your kitchen—helping reduce the carbon emissions from transportation.
Use Biodegradable Garbage Bags
Did you know that standard garbage bags don’t decompose in landfills? Switching to biodegradable kitchen bags that will break down once they’re at the landfill is an easy eco-friendly change to make.
Use Reusable Materials
Reduce the amount of plastic in your kitchen by switching to reusable materials. Replace plastic sandwich bags with mason jars or glass storage containers, and swap plastic shopping bags for reusable totes.
Make Use of Food Scraps
Rather than throwing out food scraps, get a second use out of them by creating something new. Add leftovers from meal prep to make a broth or stew. Or, make nutrient-rich soil conditioner for your plants using leftover fruit peels, veggies, and eggshells.
Buy Fresh Produce
Opt for fresh produce rather than packaged or frozen. Buying fresh helps reduce the amount of packaging making its way to your kitchen’s trash bin. If you can’t avoid produce packed in plastic, make sure you’re recycling as much of it as you can!
Get in the habit of recycling by having a dedicated bin for recyclables in your kitchen. Keep an eye out for plastics with recycling codes #1 and #2 (including containers like soft drinks, salad dressing, milk jugs, and shampoos)—these ones belong in the recycle bin!
