    Reduce Food Waste

    Perhaps you’ve walked into your fridge and found a sad and wilted veggie at the back of the fridge? Yes, we’ve experienced it. The reduction of food waste is a first step to sustainability in cooking. It’s as if you give Mother Earth a big ol hug. Plan your meals in advance and then only purchase the items you require. Food leftovers are your accurate partner in turning the roast into a delicious soup or sandwich with a filling. If you’re together with all the leftovers, you’re not just saving cash but also helping the environment. Looking for sustainable cooking inspiration?

    Reduce Water Usage

    All water, everywhere with not a drop of water to go waste! The kitchen can be a water guzzler and it shouldn’t have to be. In the event of washing your vegetables, use the bowl rather than just letting the tap flow. Utilize a dishwasher, if you are together. Allow it to cool before using it to sprinkle your plants with water. Your plants will thank you!

    Use Natural Cleaning Products

    Every kitchen comes with only a handful of cleaning products that contain chemicals. Yikes! To warrant a more sustainable future change to organic cleaning solutions. Vinegar, baking soda as well as lemon juice are potent ingredients to fight dirt, grease and bacteria without chemical toxins. They’re less expensive, environmentally friendly and don’t make your kitchen smell like a factory. You can also make yourself your own cleaning products. How cool do you think that is?

    Invest in Energy Star Appliances

    The time is now to be a bit technological. Energy Star appliances might seem to be a major upfront cost however they will pay for themselves over time. The appliances use as much as 50 percent less energy than equivalents that are not certified. If it’s your refrigerator oven, or dishwasher having an Energy Star rating means it’s built to last and is environmentally friendly. In addition to reducing the amount of carbon you emit and also experiencing the reduction in energy bills. It’s a double-win!

    Sustainable Packaging

    How much of the kitchen garbage is simply packaging? The plastic containers and wrappers can quickly accumulate. Look for items that use the least amount of packaging or that is sustainable. Paper bags, glass containers as well as biodegradable bottles can all be great alternatives. You can even take your own containers and bags while shopping. A small thing that can make a huge impact.

    Buy in Bulk

    Shopping in bulk can be like hitting the green jackpot. This reduces the amount of packaging that is disposed of and typically saves cash. Buy a variety of cereals, nuts, as well as dried fruit from large bins. Place them in recyclable containers in your home. You’re not only cutting down on plastics used for single use as well, but also you’ll ensure that your pantry is always filled with necessities. It’s cost-effective, effective, and green.

    Implement Zero Waste Cooking

    Zero-waste cooking requires the ability to think creatively. Have you got carrots? Use them to make pesto. Stale bread? Bake croutons and bread pudding. The bones from the roast last night? The perfect broth for hearty stews. The goal is to make use of everything you have in your kitchen. It’s a kind of fun problem, how do you get the most from the ingredients you already have? This not only reduces the amount of food wasted, but will also benefit you to become a better cook and more creative.

    Use Reusable Dish Towels

    Dish towels that can be reused are what you need. They’re strong, washable, as well as more environmentally friendly. You should keep a supply in the kitchen to wipe up spills, drying hands and for cleaning the surfaces. They not only minimize waste, but they also can save you cash in the end. You can also pick exciting patterns and colours that will bring some colour to your kitchen!

    Conclusion:

    Making the switch to sustainable cooking does not have to be an effort. It’s all about small and thoughtful adjustments that will add up in long periods of. This isn’t just beneficial for the earth, it’s great for you as well.
