Here at CHANGE we are making it our mission to have more space and less waste in our homes. We want to introduce you to easy changes that you can adopt into everyday life. Not only will these changes help your home, but they will have enormous effect on the health of the planet.
To kick things off, this week we’re talking all things Kitchen! Down below are a list of our favourite swaps you can make to keep you kitchen waste free.
Glass mason jars are the ultimate reusable container! Store your overnight oats, coffee, salad or sweet treat and they will be preserved much longer. Inexpensive and readily available they are easy to clean and will add a bit of colour to your kitchen!
With a single plastic bag taking up to 1,000 years to decompose, investing in a reusable bag comes with a lot of benefits. Great for storage and reliable for carrying groceries they will be your new best friend this 2021.
Investing in some reusable containers for your kitchen is a great way to store leftovers, carry lunch and reduce waste. Look for a container that will last (we recommend Cheeki’s lunch box range) and this way you will never have to worry about replacing it.
Buying bulk soap bars are a great way to reduce your plastic waste. Available in either recyclable packaging or just in a lose bar means there is less energy spent on the creation and transportation. In fact, did you know that it takes up to five times more energy to produce liquid soap than a solid soap bar!
Coconut dish brush
The coconut dish brush has been designed to use the husk fibres of a coconut! Naturally antibacterial, multi-purpose and non-scratching it is eco-friendly and biodegradable - and of course completely plastic free!
Of course, we had to mention CHANGE tablet cleaners! With up to 8 bottles of cleaner stored in one tiny recyclable box, what better way to reduce your waste and increase space in your kitchen then with tablet cleaners! Find out all you need to know about tablet cleaners here.
Cloth napkins are one of the easiest ways to switch to an eco-friendlier lifestyle (and add some cute colours into your kitchen). Investing in cloth napkins can be as easy as cutting up an old towel or piece of clothing. Easy to store and wash they can be used over and over again… there really are no negatives!
The French Press is the most eco-friendly way to make coffee. With no filters the only waste produced is the coffee grounds, which are completely compostable! Not only is the French Press more eco-friendly they are great quality and rarely have to be replaced!
