Here are my favourite eco-friendly kitchen supplies!
Ten & Co. Swedish clothes
These Swedish Sponge Cloth These are not only cute, they save the environment. The reason I LOVE these clothes is they replace paper towels! How you ask? They can absorb 15x its own weight in liquid, meaning they can be reused over and over and thrown in the washer. They are also 100% biodegradable. I will use a cloth to wipe down the counters, and clean the shower/tub in the bathroom and then just rinse with some soap and water.

Beeswax wraps are a eco-friendly replacement for plastic wrap. I am in love with the company Goldilocks for there cute designs, but you can get beeswax wraps anywhere. They are made with 100% cotton fabric, beeswax and jojoba oil. These guys just need to be washed with soap and cold water. They are great to save half cut avocados, or vegetables.

Silicon Baking Mats
These guys replace tinfoil and parchment paper that you use to line your baking sheet. They are non-stick so no need to use cooking spray. Save the tinfoil and/or parchment paper that just gets thrown into the garbage and switch them for liners. They can be found at most stores like Costco or Walmart.
