Can be used for coverage of prepping meals and storing leftovers in the kitchen or even packing lunches and snacks on the go. The ideal WHY for a sustainable lover: plastic-free and silicone-free.

These amazing eco-friendly kitchen products are expected to last more than a year, but you will have to be careful with the washing. The wrap can lose its resin coating to the point that it has lost much of its ability to wrap, so: just cold water and light washing. Also, be careful with warm bowls: a few degrees can make the wax melt, causing it not to be usable after a short time.

What I Like

  • Dual bucket design with removable inner bucket
  • Odor free
  • Perfect for a tidy kitchen

What I Don't Like

  • The lid may not fit correctly
  • The filter keeps nothing away
  • Easy attraction for ants and fruit flies

This indoor compost bin is a beautiful eco-friendly kitchen product. Ideal for tidy kitchens. Tapered bucket allows easy clean up. The inner bucket is top-rack dishwasher safe and you can rinse outer ceramic with hot water and wipe clean.

However, you may have to change the charcoal filters soon because they are not that effective against odor. Also, be aware of ant and fly plagues. Although it is an unpleasant point you have to consider, nothing new for someone accustomed to compost and its magic. Just try it, it looks so cute!

What I Like

  • 4 different sizes fit
  • Help extend the life of your unused fruits and vegetables
  • Safe alternative to plastic wrap

What I Don't Like

  • Are not as flexible and adaptable for different sizes as expected
  • Are made of plastic

This strange kitchen product may not be in the top ranking of your eco-friendly kitchen product, but it is a great option to avoid plastic films. You have just to push the leftover half down into the closest sized hugger and save it in the fridge until you need it again. When the food is pushed into the food hugger, the food hugger folds tightly (hugs) around the food and creates a seal to hold in the natural juices and prevent exposure to circulating air, which can cause food to spoil or dehydrate.

You have to know that it is crafted from 100 percent FDA silicone, and although are 100 percent BPA and phthalate free, are still plastic. Food huggers are also dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe. You will be able to find four sizes of huggers but they may not be perfectly tight to every kind of vegetable, fruit and container.

It is said to be used in the microwave and dishwasher but you have to check the power of the microwave, with high temperatures it may lose the lid`s shape. Also, don’t put it in the oven. The Porter Bowl is not leak-proof so you will have to carry salad dressings separately, and avoid carrying soups.

Sponge in the kitchen is a key point to an eco-friendly home. This one is all natural and plant based with no added colors or chemicals. 100-percent biodegradable cellulose sponge center. It is expected to be long-lasting, however, it depends on the use you give to the sponge. The powerful scrubbing material is made from 100-percent cactus.

Easy to use and specially, skin friendly too. The package includes 6 sponges measuring 4. 3-Inch x 2. 8-Inch x 0. 8-Inch. Can be a bit disappointing the fact that it comes wrapped in plastic packaging.

What I Like

  • Reusable
  • Versatile use
  • Made of bamboo, an eco-friendly source

What I Don't Like

  • Not 100% biodegradable
  • Not far from cloth towels
