Top 10 Eco Kitchen Swaps

There are so many little changes you can make in your house to help the environment or atleast mitigate your negative impact on it. You might also be on a mission to go sustainable, eco-friendy and become a carer for the planet. Therefore, another great place to do this is in your kitchen. I have collated a list of some of the top alternatives you can make that will help you with this. Many of these focus on reducing waste, which often contributes to the ever growing mountain of rubbish. Well to help you go zero waste and to your greener future I have collated my top 10 changes that you can make in your kitchen to help you achieve this goal and live a more sustainable, green and eco-friendly life:

Glass Jars:

You might have seen these in some beautiful picturesque Instagram photos. Well there is a reason for this, as they do look great and can work brilliantly at helping you reduce your waste. These eco-friendly glass jars can come in a range of sizes and can be filled with a ton of different items but once you have them you can stop contributing to our growing waste from the often unnecessary packaging. You can do this by buying at your local eco-store where you can fill your new reusable container. They often have a high initial cost but can be used for many, many years. I always advise glass jars, as glass is easily recycable and it means you do not contribute to plastic waste. Here are some suggestions of what you can use them for:

  • Spaghetti

  • Pasta

  • Rice

  • Flour

  • Dried fruits and mushrooms

  • Corn (for popcorn)

  • Sugar

  • Coffee

  • Nuts

  • Lentils

  • Pulses

  • Herbs and spices
