How to Organize your Kitchen in an Eco-friendly Way

Ahh. The kitchen. The most chaotic part of the house, especially in the morning. And the easiest room in the house to invite plastic use.  So. If you want to have some sort of sanity through organizing, but be a little bit kinder to the environment. Then here are some tips:

  1. Try to opt for reusable bags or biodegradable plastics if you can.  One of the greatest contributors of waste, especially in landfills and waterways like canals is single-use – plastic, especially those grocery plastic bags. So if you want to reduce the usage of plastic bags. Which can be avoidable sometimes. But if you can, then it’s a little bit better to opt for reusable bags, regardless of what material they are made of, as long it can be used multiple times. Cloth, nylon, or even those giveaway canvas bags.

  1. Reuse containers both glass and plastic. – Instead of buying another plastic container for your existing pantry or other kitchen supplies. Why not try to reuse existing potential storage containers like old coffee glass containers, tomato glass jars containers, or shoe boxes. Glass jars are great for storing candies, spices, or even candies.

  1. Limit buying kitchen tools that serve only one purpose. – It’s better to stick to kitchen tools that can do multiple things, so they don’t end up inside the kitchen cabinet most of the time. Unless you love to eat a banana every day, then that banana slicer from Amazon will certainly be worth the purchase.

  1. Use or repurpose old shirts as cleaning tools. – Yes, there is the element of the convenience of using paper towels to clean a wide variety of messes. But think about the money you will save in the long run if you opt for that old shirt that hasn’t seen the light of day in your closet, by repurposing it as a reusable paper towel. And after that, you can just toss it in your washing machine.

  1. Properly store food to avoid food waste. – We are sometimes guilty of overbuying stuff, especially groceries. Hey, who wants an empty fridge, and since the average capacity of our fridge has gone bigger over the years. But the problem with this scenario, most of us won’t end up consuming what we put back in our fridge. Be it leftovers for last night’s dinner, restaurant take-out, or that pound of meat that you bought. So it’s best to make a meal plan and learn how to store foods properly. Yes, it does take some research, hey a little bit of knowledge wouldn’t hurt anyone.
