What I Like

  • Versatile use

  • You can use them to your DIY project

  • You can wash them

What I Don't Like

  • No-lining lining

  • No inside pockets

  • Just raw canvas colour available

These canvas bags are the first step to an eco-friendly kitchen. Among the best sustainable products for your kitchen, these simple bags will allow you to do your shopping at the nearest market avoiding plastics and being able to use them again and again.

It would be nice if they included some internal or external pockets for some cases of punctual shopping. However, it's nothing that can't be replaced by just another bag. Also, although they do not have an internal lining and that could cause them to get dirty very quickly, they are washable and stain-resistant. Are also perfect for a DIY project with your children or nephews and nieces, either with paint or dyeing.

What I Like

  • Practical use

  • Easy to store when are not being used

  • Suitable for bulk purchase with reusable containers

What I Don't Like

  • Made of plastic

  • Expensive item

  • Available in just two colors

If large, square, plastic containers are a problem for your refrigerator, this storage option is perfect. Plus, these silicone containers are one of the best sustainable products for your kitchen because they allow you to go bulk shopping with them and avoid single-use plastic containers.

If your dream is a sustainable home, you may not think of silicone as a material, however, these containers are washable and reusable as many times as you want. On the other hand, they are practical and easy to store, suitable for a minimalist and essential lifestyle. Ideal for vegetables, legumes, cereals and even ready-to-go salads.

What I Like

  • Ideal for preparing fresh herbs dishes

  • Perfect for prolonging the freshness of herbs in the apartment after harvesting or purchase at the nearby market

  • Simple but innovative technology

What I Don't Like

  • Not as aesthetic as possible

  • Not easy to wash

  • Tall and hard to storage in some fridges

If your diet is also consistent with a sustainable way of life and a sustainable home, one of the best sustainable products for your kitchen may be this glass for fresh herbs and vegetables. If you make a monthly purchase from herb and vegetable growers, you may need to keep them fresh for some weeks and this glass could be your perfect ally.

I think it is a simple but innovative technology and it is also suitable to be stored in the fridge. It might be a bit big for your fridge, but most of them provide space for this kind of tall container. It's not as aesthetically pleasing to have on the countertop, but it's something you might also consider. It can be a little complex to wash, it is important to keep it clean to prevent mold or other agents that may affect the products we store.

Most Fancy - Bee Carefree Reusable Beeswax Food Wraps

What I Like

  • Really good looking for a fancy kitchen.

  • The kit includes a bag and beeswax sticks.

  • Perfect for avoiding plastic films.

What I Don't Like

  • Expensive product.

  • The bag is small for groceries shopping

  • The return is not for free

Plastic is a big issue in terms of sustainability, and these beeswax wraps are a great and practical solution for that. You can store from vegetables to cheese, from seed to fruits. These are particularly beautiful because of the patterns and color combinations.

4 81nTDGP7mOL._AC_SL1500_
4 818RO24r3SL._AC_SL1500_

The kit includes a bag for grocery shopping and some beeswax bars. Those are not as big as expected, and that means that the prize is not fully worth it. Anyway, the wraps are perfect for a fancy and good looking eco-friendly kitchen, and that's worth it to pay for me. Something I would like to consider is the times the wraps are suitable to be used without losing the beeswax properties.

What I Like

  • Beautiful Scandinavian design

  • Ideal for those who don't consider their self green thumb

  • Perfect for no-garden homes

What I Don't Like

  • Poor after-sales service

  • Just proper for small plant growing

  • Easy mold growing

This indoor garden seems to be the solution for all those who consider that they are bad with plants. It provides the nutrients that each plant needs, the light that is suitable and even the ideal soil. It is aesthetically pleasing to have near the kitchen.

5 81LpOUYfPOL._AC_SL1500_

However, the price-quality ratio is not the best. There are better proposals on the market at similar prices. The growth of the plants is restricted and the regulation of the light is not possible to be made to the requirement of each plant. In addition, the quality of the LED lights is average, causing them to be replaced after a short time of use. Aesthetic and practical, making it one of the best sustainable products for your kitchen, but it has room for improvement.

What I Like

  • Plastic free soda consumerism

  • Easy to use

  • Energy efficient

What I Don't Like

  • Not big bubbles

  • Some design problems

  • The plastic bottles breaks easily

Buying water bottles can be the worst decision for a sustainable lifestyle, that's why a machine to make your own soda in a reusable bottle has to be one of the best sustainable products for your kitchen. It is extremely simple to use and the kit includes everything you need for a homemade soda.

6 71IzqxcTLQL._AC_SL1500_

However, if you are looking for a soda just like the one you buy, it is not the best alternative. The carbonation is thin and smooth, and the result is not always uniform. In addition, there are design issues to improve in terms of bottle positioning and bottle material, as it can break easily.

Most Responsible - Biodegradable Trash Bags

What I Like

  • Compostable

  • Resistant

  • Long enough to fold over the top of the trash bin

What I Don't Like

  • No certifications

  • Cannot be used for municipal industrial composting services

  • Easy to tear

Waste bags are also a pain point in sustainable kitchens. These bags are made from starch and other renewable natural resources that can be broken down naturally causing less environmental damage. They are a good size: 24.8 x 31.5, better than others on the market. They are strong enough to hold the heaviest trash

7 61RJ5BHE-3L._AC_SL1500_
7 61-y0Jb+UfL._AC_SL1001_

While compostable, they are not easy to tear unless not handled correctly. They have no odor and are made of materials harmless to the human body. However, the process of decomposition and composting must be controlled to be effective. It is an excellent solution to the major problem of polypropylene bags, so serious for the earth and ocean ecosystems. Any doubt that this is one of the best sustainable products for your kitchen?

What I Like

  • Versatile and useful

  • Women runned business

  • Produced with zero plastic and made to last

What I Don't Like

  • Just for circled bowls

  • Just available in green

This product is ideal for preventing food container lids from getting lost, as it adapts to any round container. Also, ideal for bulk purchases avoiding single-use plastics. Easy to store and excellent for placing in the refrigerator or freezer.

8 61R4VOCFiTL._AC_SL1200_
8 813THNMnvCL._AC_SL1500_

Dishwasher safe. It is not clear if they can be microwaved. Are produced with zero plastic and are made to last, but be careful! In the end, they are made of grass, so, probably not drop-proven. What's true is that it allows you to reduce plastic consumption and waste production. These will not end up in landfills like less durable products such as film plastic. Also, these lids provide an airtight seal ensuring your food stays fresh longer. Another best sustainable product proved for your kitchen!

What I Like

  • Colorful

  • All-in-one

  • Reusable

What I Don't Like

  • Different quality materials

  • Not for minimal design kitchens

If you were looking for an all-in-one solution for your kitchen and refrigerator, this is an excellent solution. The kit includes beeswax wraps, textile grocery bags, food containers for the fridge and even a microplastic-free dishwasher. The wraps come in different sizes for different uses. Plus, they have fun and funky prints. Not so suitable for elegant kitchens, but for family or youthful kitchens.

The price is high, so if the quality is good, the purchase will be worth it. However, the risk of buying the kit is that not all products are of the same quality. You have to try them!

What I Like

  • Handmade

  • Washable

  • Useful for coffee and tea

What I Don't Like

  • No stain-resistant
  • Not cheap

This coffee filter seems to me to be perfection in simplicity, utility and sustainability. In the United States the consumption of this beverage is almost obligatory. And the filters are daily waste. As if that were not enough, these are handmade so they have an artisanal value that makes them special. They are also suitable for making tea. Once used, they can be rinsed with fresh water and once dry they are ready to be used again.

10 71cewj+U90L._AC_SL1500_
10 81T1i0MZCwL._AC_SL1500_

It would be good to check how many uses they resist because the more cups of coffee they solve, the better their environmental impact will be. I think, among the best sustainable products for your kitchen, this is my favorite! Yours?

Now you know how to start being sustainable in the Kitchen there´s no excuses. Have you already chosen your first sustainable item?
