Five tips for an eco-friendly kitchen

Are you looking to reduce your carbon footprint? The kitchen is a great place to start. With a little help, it’s not difficult to get into a routine that is better for the environment and your general health too. Adapting in simple lifestyle changes really can make all the difference. 

1) Shop for your groceries with reusable bags

One way to reduce waste and stop plastic grocery bags from ending up in landfills is using reusable totes when shopping for groceries.

Did you know it takes up to 1,000 years for polyethylene bags to degrade/break? Making the switch today helps stop the largest source of ocean litter.

PS – every customer receives a FREE Ecomodo tote bag when they spend over £15. This makes the perfect bag for shopping and can be used again and again.


2) Clean your kitchen with eco-friendly products

The average household uses cleaning products daily. So, it’s important you choose well! Most people aren’t aware that a lot of standard drugstore versions are terrible for the environment, your health and even use animal produce – bad all-rounders.

There are heaps of eco-friendly alternatives, even using just lemons or baking soda is hugely effective. 

Here at Ecomodo, we sell fabulous bamboo cleaning products that work perfectly with the above.


3) Keep your kitchen smelling fresh with eco-friendly candles 

Who doesn’t love a nice smelling kitchen? Fresh scents paired with a clean, tidy cooking station = heaven! However, next time you light a candle or plug in an air freshener think about what this does to the environment. Not to mention the plastic it will likely be packaged in.

Instead, fragrance the air with an eco-friendly candle or look at purchasing essential oils to fragrance the room.

4) Use bamboo cutlery rather than plastic or metal

Bamboo cutlery is an ethical, elegant alternative that won't leave a funny taste in your mouth and look great in your kitchen. 

Bamboo utensils are long-lasting and unlike metal or plastic sets they require no chemicals to make, making them 100% natural and completely non-toxic. They are also biodegradable, reusable, and sustainable.
