Reusable Roundup: Go Green in the Kitchen!

The kitchen is a place where we create meals to sustain us and help us grow, but it’s also one of the areas of our lives that creates a lot of waste. Plastic wrap, plastic bags, and plastic bottles are all over our kitchen, and while it would be nearly impossible to eliminate it all, there’s a lot we can do to reduce. With a few of these handy tools, you can cut out some of the waste you produce on a daily basis in the kitchen without another thought.

Reusable K-Cup - $7.79

Everyone loves their coffee, and Kuerig machines are in 15% of homes - and in many offices too. The Keurig is designed for convenience and ease of use, but if you’re still using those adorable little cups, you’re creating a lot of waste. A cup a day, 5 days a week totals over 250 little plastic cups with your name on them heading to the landfill each year. With this little contraption, you can ditch the one-time use cups for good.

Glass Straws from Strawesome - $6.95 and up

These reusable glass straws are a great for anyone who loves drinking with a straw but is mindful of how wasteful plastic straws are. There are tons of options for smoothies, cocktails, fun and bright designs for kids. Using reusable straws over and over again easily reduces the kind of plastic waste that we don’t even think about in our daily lives.

Reusable Water Bottle - prices range based on brand

We all know that bottled water is wasteful, but sometimes convenience gets the best of us. One of the keys to reducing waste is making the alternative just as convenient for us. Grab yourself a sturdy, reliable reusable water bottle in a bright, happy color like this great Camelbak one. It only takes about 20 more seconds to fill up than to grab a bottle destined to join the 2 million tons already occupying landfills.

Reusable Sandwich Bags - $8.99

You name a disposable plastic you use in the kitchen, and I’ll find a reusable alternative! Sandwich and snack baggies are an item of kitchen convenience it’s hard to imagine doing without - but you don’t have to, just switch to these reusable packs instead!

Pet Food Can Covers - $5.72 for 3

Another easy way to reduce waste from food storage is convenient can covers. These little snap-on lids are designed for pet food cans, but they fit 4 different can sizes and can be used to preserve your human food as well! No more throwing out extra food or wasting plastic wrap to cover cans in your kitchen!

Mesh Produce Bags - $11.80 for 5

Thanks to the plastic bag bans across LA County, we’ve said goodbye to plastic grocery bags and embraced the reusable shopping tote. But what about those plastic produce bags? You can say goodbye to those too with these mesh alternatives.

Food Huggers - $9.95 for 2

Reusable Food Wrap - $18.95 for 3

Ah, plastic wrap. The many uses are seemingly endless. Convenient for all types of food storage in the kitchen, it is all doomed to inevitably end up in the trash can. Pair these air and liquid resistant beeswax-coated food covers with your new reusable sandwich bags and food huggers, and you’re well on your way to cutting out the throwaway plastic in your kitchen!
