You don’t have to make huge changes to create an eco-friendly kitchen environment. Here are 10 tips to help you go green in the kitchen.
- Bring Your Own Bag.
Get out of the habit of coming home from the grocery store with a dozen plastic bags holding your goods. Take bags made of canvas or other reusable materials with you, along with mesh bags for produce items. Keep a few in your vehicle for convenience and to ensure you are never caught at the store empty handed.
- Drop By the Deli.
Forget all the processed and overly packaged meats and cheeses. Drop by the deli to get freshly cut slices as well as to reduce the amount of plastic and Styrofoam that is wrapped around it. Ask the butcher to minimize the paper used to wrap the produce, as well.
