Living Plastic-Free – My Kitchen Favorites

It’s been a few months since I wrote about going plastic-free, so I thought it would be great to do a round up to tell you what’s been working for me and what hasn’t. Hopefully you might find something to try for yourself and I’m always looking for more recommendations from you! 

This week, I’m going to focus on my plastic-free kitchen finds. The first one is probably one of my top favorites and it is my mini hydroflask. It is a baby blue 12 ounce insulated bottle and it keeps beverages hot or cold for hours. I also use a metal straw with it that I keep in a small drawstring bag along with a two-sided bamboo utensil with a fork and a spoon on each side. It is is the perfect kit that has traveled with me all over the world and I also like to keep in your purse at all times!

The next thing I love to use in the kitchen is the Fillaree refillable and sustainable dish soap. You can order it online and they deliver to you a big bottle of soap that you use to refill your glass dispenser for weeks. When you run out, simply send back and they will refill it for you again and so on. You can pick the scent and customize your pack.

For the dishwasher, I found these awesome pods from Dropps. They look and work like regular diswasher pods, but they are 100% plastic free. Dropps also offers laundry detergent pods which I also use. Their products are plant-based, non-toxic and made in the US. Amazing!

Last but not least, a lot of you recommended Bee’s Wraps as a an alternative for plastic wrap and I am so glad you did because I love them! They are of course reusable, biodegradable, compostable and the list goes on. They’re also really easy to use and wash and have become my number one option for food storage in the kitchen.

One item I am still on the hunt for, is a plastic-free scrubbing brush/sponge for hand-washing dishes. I have tried one but it wasn’t as efficient so if you know a durable, strong plastic-free brush or spong, I am definitely open to your suggestions!

Stay tuned for my next blog which will be all about my favorite plastic-free items for the bathroom and shower!
