How to make your kitchen more sustainable?

How to make your kitchen more sustainable?

Here a few easy steps to make your kitchen more sustainable! 
1/ CLING FILM:
Just like every other non-recyclable plastic product, cling film isn’t compostable, so ends up in landfill sites across the globe, on our streets, in our parks and in our oceans, on an alarming scale.

-> INSTEAD Switch out plastic wrap for beeswax wrap, which keeps food fresh and is washable, reusable, and compostable. Any job plastic wrap would normally do, beeswax wrap has it covered.

2/ CLEANING PRODUCTS

Most commercial cleaning products are also packaged with the intention to be disposable. Though the plastics used in most of the products is in theory recyclable, many people simply throw the products away when they’re empty. Since plastic is not biodegradable, it occupies landfills indefinitely, and accumulates in mass quantities over a period of years.

3/ KITCHEN SPONGES 

Are kitchen sponges bad for the environment? Green-and-yellow plastic kitchen sponges are harmful to the environment; they're made from synthetic fibres that pollute waterways and aren't biodegradable, so they're sitting in landfills around the world.

4/ LAUNDRY DETERGENT

Instead, laundry detergent is added to dirty laundry, where it does its job “lifting stains” and “preserving colours” before getting washed out, diluted, and sent down the drain with the wastewater from your washing machine. Unfortunately, the chemicals in these detergents can have a far-reaching environmental impact.

5/ CARPET FRESHENER 

Harsh chemicals that are used in carpet cleaning often have a significant negative impact on the environment. During the carpet cleaning chemicals are released into the air (the same air you and your family will have to breathe after the carpet cleaners are gone), and after they are used to clean up the spots on your carpet, these chemicals are poured, dumped, or rinsed down the drain where they can be potentially harmful to the water supply.
