Homed edit: Five eco utensils for your plastic-free kitchen
Edgar Castrejon / UNSPLASH
A plastic-free kitchen is a beautiful kitchen.
You worked hard to live sustainably. They refuse, reuse and recycle. You are thoughtful, organized and determined to do your bit for the environment.
The result is a beautiful, environmentally friendly, plastic-free kitchen.
Don’t undo all that diligence and effort by buying a crappy, mass-produced plastic pot washer or a sneaky roll of gladwrap!
