6 Sustainable Swaps For A More Eco Kitchen.

There are lots of minor lifestyle tweaks that we can make to relieve pressure on the planet, like switching to a reusable water bottle or discarding your plastic toothbrush and replacing it with  a biodegradable one. Swapping disposable kitchen products for their sustainable alternatives is a great way to encourage a more carbon-neutral planet and help mitigate the staggering rates of climate change and plastic pollution. Here are some of my recommendations:

Swap clingfilm and tinfoil for:

 Reusable beeswax wraps

More than 1.2 billion metres (745,000 miles) of cling film is used by British household every year – enough to cover the circumference of the world over 30 times.


Beeswaxwraps offer wraps in myriad sizes and wonderful designs. Yes, that's right - this clingfilm alternative doesn't just help to save the planet, but it looks cute whilst doing so!

You can also find wax wraps on the following sites:

Reusable food huggers


These Silicone food huggers from Wearth London are the perfect non-plastic alternative to clingfilm or tinfoil; they provide a seal to preserve your leftover food (e.g avocado) and keep them fresher for longer.

Swap disposable, plastic sandwich bags for:

Reusable Sandwich Bags


Waterproof and linen lined Reusable Sandwich wraps are ideal for on the go lunches - the perfect swap to replace disposable sandwich bags or clingfilm.

Vegan wax wraps or reusable beeswax wraps (as previously mentioned) of a larger size are also suitable to use as sandwich wraps.

Swap kitchen roll for:

UnPaper towels


Washable Unpaper towels are one of the most ethical swaps that you can make in your kitchen: they not only work better than disposable paper towels, they also don't carry the added guilt that comes with being disposable.


You can also find Unpapaer towels here:


Swap disposable dish brushes for:

Bamboo dish brushes


This bamboo dish brush from Wearth London consists of a replaceable head, bamboo handle and biodegradable, plant-based bristles. Think it can't get any better? With every order, Every Green Island plants one tree!

Swap plastic straws for:

Reusable bamboo straws


500,000,000 plastic straws are used in the U.S alone each day, and I'm sure I don't need to inform you where the majority of them end up...

If straws are a must-have item in your kitchen, make the switch to sustainable bamboo reusable straws.



  1. I own a lot of these! I've never seen a food hugger before. Genius!!

  3. I didn't know about being able to get a bamboo dishwashing brush, what a great idea! :) I've looked at the food huggers before but we tend to use up veggies pretty quickly so haven't bought them yet. The reusable wipes are so helpful for cleaning though! :)

    Hope that you had a lovely weekend :)
