3 Easy Eco-Friendly Kitchen Ideas

Many people are aiming to reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible. With growing awareness of the impacts of climate change, it’s good to do as much as we all can to help out. The kitchen is an area where many changes can be made to focus on more eco-friendly options. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Use Beeswax Wraps

There are so many times when cooking and preparing food that you want to wrap or cover dishes and ingredients to keep them fresh and clean. However, using saran wrap or even foil produces so much unnecessary waste. Beeswax wraps are firstly produced in a non-toxic way and can be reused so eliminate that harmful waste.

Set up a Compost System

Food waste is a huge contributor to climate change. Certain places around the world have excellent systems in place for dealing with food waste, but if you live somewhere that doesn’t then it’s time to take matters into your own hands. All you need is somewhere you can leave food waste that isn’t too near the house to avoid smells and pest infestations, and then gather food waste here to naturally compost. This can then be used for a garden.

Buy Package Free Dried Foods

There are plenty of zero-waste stores these days in which you can buy dried goods without any plastic packaging. You can then store things like pasta, rice, and pulses in jars and pots.
