Creating a Zero Waste Kitchen by Reducing Plastic Use
You can be a part of the zero waste movement by reducing plastic use in your kitchen!
In this podcast episode, I’m sharing how I’m trying to create a greener kitchen and reduce the amount of waste, especially plastic waste, that my family produces and tosses.
Ever since having kids 4 years ago, I’ve become so much more aware of all the waste that we as a modern family of 5 produces. Even though I’m committed to making green improvements in all areas of my life, today’s episode is going to focus solely on the food or kitchen side of things. It’s the area I spend the most time in and feel like we’ve made some great progress with small, doable changes that anyone listening to this podcast can also implement.
In this episode, I’ll cover:
- How to stop using single use plastic and start using handy products like zero waste produce bags
- How to get takeout without the plastic containers
- Which reusable containers we use to pack snacks, lunches, and freezer meals
- The progress we’re still hoping to make by reducing the number of products purchase that have plastic packaging
