As you find ways to declutter and simplify your home, keep in mind that knowing what your possessions are made of is just as important as being in touch with how they make you feel.
Chances are, you’ve been hearing about the problems we face with plastics today. Not only are they made from non-renewable fossil fuels that can leach toxins into our food and water, but they are also being recycled less and less, which means most are ending up in our landfills.
Luckily, there are many things you can do to avoid bringing plastic into your home to begin with. It’s easy to have a plastic-free kitchen than you think. Now, ready to get started?
