Being more sustainability conscious isn’t as hard as we all think. Here are our favourite cost-effective ways to be more sustainable in your kitchen.
Reuse your jars
After you use your spaghetti sauce (one of many times that comes in a jar) don’t throw it away! Keep the jar to up-cycle. It is perfect for storage, taking to the health food store, storing makeup brushes or using as a vase.
Purchase reusable microfiber cloths, these will also help you save $$
Stop purchasing paper towels or single-use wipes. Microfiber cloths do an incredible job at cleaning surfaces and dishes.
Refillable cleaning supplies
Make the switch to refillable cleaning supplies. We love our refillable cleaning supplies from our friends at Pleasant State. The products don’t contain any nasty chemicals and leave the kitchen sparkling clean
There are many plant-based supplies that are accessible at our local grocery store. These are much easier to break down or are completely biodegradable (which we love)
Compost your food scraps
Instead of throwing away everything that ends up in landfill. Invest in a compost bin for all of your food scraps. There are many benefits to having a compost bin:
- Improves Soil Health
- Promotes Healthier Plant Growth
- Reduces Waste
- Conserves Water
You can definitely be more sustainability conscious in the kitchen, and you don't even have to make too many changes. It all comes down to making informed choices, and incorporating a few core methods and practices into your routine. Over time, these small changes will add up, without draining your wallet or hurting your schedule. It's easy to do, so get started today!
