1. WOODEN UTENSILS
Wood and wooden utensils have been used in traditional cooking since the beginning of civilization, and they are still used in many nations today. In comparison to other materials like plastic (nylon) and stainless steel, wooden equipment has a lot of practical applications. But what else they can do? Beyond their beauty, there are a lot of benefits to using wooden utensils:
1. Unlike metals, they are heat-resistant. 2. Wooden spoons are non-reactive, meaning they won’t react when they come into contact with acidic foods. 3. Wooden utensils are natural materials. So, they won't leach chemicals on our foods. 4. They are durable and very easy to clean. 5. They are good for environment.
2. REUSABLE BAGS
A plastic bag takes 500 years to degrade, and when it does, plastic particles are released, contaminating land and streams and entering the food chain. Plus, they're now expensive! Replace it with The Clean Earth Project's durable reusable bag that will endure for years and save you money in the long run.
REUSABLE COFFEE FILTER
If you are a coffee lover, then this one would be a great deal for you. Swap your paper coffee filter with The Clean Earth Project's reusable coffee filter. Unlike paper filter, reusable filter does not alter the taste of your coffee. So, you are confident that your coffee tastes as it should. To add, switching to reusable coffee filters mean lesser trees to be cut, and that would be great for our environment.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
Some people are hesitant to become sustainable because they fear it would be costly. The truth is that you really can make simple and inexpensive substitutions. Being environmentally conscious is neither difficult nor expensive. It only needs a change in lifestyle, as well as the breaking of old habits and practice. Our planet is already exhausted, and the only thing we can do now is to start changing our lifestyle, and it does not need to be grand, simple eco-swaps would be a great way to start.
And we hope you are with us in this fight.
