Zero Waste Kitchen
Glass jars vs. wrappers
Acquire or reuse glass jars to store food bought in bulk in cloth bags. In this way you will have a clean and aesthetic cupboard, free of garbage and much more orderly. The food is visible so you know perfectly what you have in your cupboard, with this you make better use of the food. Better for your health and for the health of the planet.
Sanitas vs Napkins in Plastic
A zero-garbage kitchen starts by saying goodbye to plastic wraps. Sanitas are paper napkins that you can find unpacked and work just like napkins. These are the ones I use. You can also get napkins made with fabric and reuse them. This is the way our grandparents lived. We can go back to live like that. I use cloth napkins and paper napkins to have a zero kitchen trash.
Natural fibers vs Packaging
It uses natural fibers that will be reintegrated into nature once their useful life ends, instead of synthetic fibers with plastic bags. Natural fibers can be jute, grass, ixtle, coconut fiber or any other fiber that can be returned to nature at the end of its useful life. These fibers are derived from plants. For example, grass comes from a plant similar to cucumber
Bee wraps vs plastic film
Wooden utensils vs plastic utensils
Choose wooden utensils, which is a compostable material at the end of its useful life, rather than using plastic utensils. Generally in Mexico, they are produced by artisans and small national producers. I invite you to support our businesses by acquiring this type of utensil and strengthen the regional economy.
