6 Simple Swaps for a More Environmentally-Conscious Kitchen

I think everyone has their eye on sustainability and we can all do our parts to reduce our use of single-use plastics. We try not to use plastic straws when we eat out, we bring our own shopping bags at the grocery (or we were before COVID), and we make more sustainable choices when we can, right? Everyone wants to save turtles and Mother Earth- I think that’s something we can all agree on no matter your personal politics or differences of opinion, everyone wants less garbage in the oceans.
Today we are focusing on our kitchens and how we can make some small buying choices that help reduce the waste created, specifically of single-use plastics in our home kitchens. We will be doing a series of these including cleaning products, bathrooms, and makeup counter, so stay tuned!
Here are our recommendations for some easy swaps you can make at home, we would love your feedback if you give these a try yourself:
