Switch Up Your Kitchen: Our Top Swaps To Eco-over Your Kitchen!

Ok confession time: the kitchen is probably our worst 'eco' area; we still have too much plastic/packaging from certain foods and we definitely have more mismatched reused pots and tubs than streamlined mason jars and chalk labels


The kitchen is an area where there are lots of eco swaps to be made and we've cut down on a heck of a lot of waste just by using a few carefully chosen products...in fact, our kitchen swaps are some of our most loved and used products around our home.

Now our kitchen is less cluttered, our products give us more value for money and we're kinder to the planet!

Here are a few ideas of what we use:

Unsponge and dish brush: when it comes to washing up plastic scrubbers and sponges are terrible for the environment. We've switched to a compostable dish scrubby which is much prettier and just as effective and a coconut brush for those harder to clean pots and pans. These are great value and can be easily washed and reused for months.

This brings me neatly on to washing up liquid and soap. We personally use a Primal Suds dish splash bar which is palm oil free, vegan, plastic-free, and doesn’t contain any of these 'naturally derived' eco swerves. It’s got FOUR ingredients and reminds me of old-fashioned dish soap that our grandparents would have used.

Obviously, with all eco products, it isn’t going to be as easy as a squirt, a bubble up and it’s done…you will need to put a bit of work into washing your dirty dishes but we've found it to be very effective, especially when travelling.

If that sounds like too much hard work we also have Bio D Mandari
