When you’re looking to reduce the amount of plastic you use it can get overwhelming, so sometimes it’s easier to focus on one area. The kitchen is a great place to start because there are a lot of alternatives. First, ditch the plastic wrap. It’s not as hard as it sounds, I haven’t used it for years. Try reusable beeswax-coated fabric or store food in glass containers. Then move onto replacing your baggies. There are waxed fabric and silicone alternatives to choose from. Instead of bottled water, opt for a tap filtration system. And don’t forget to use your cloth bags when you’re bringing your groceries home to your kitchen.
