Sustainable Cooking and Baking Items

My goal for 2021: to be more sustainable with my activities. And first on my list: sustainable cooking and baking items. I’m tired of throwing away paper, plastic, and single-use objects. I know it’s bad for the environment, and I knew that there would be better options out there. So, I did my research, and yep, I’ll definitely be incorporating these items into my kitchen! Bye single-use, hello eco-friendly.

Plus, the scrubber part is made from recycled plastic and walnut shells without glue. On top of that, it repels water, so no stinky bacteria gets in.
