Try some plastic free alternatives like wax wraps and fabric plate covers instead. The good old fashioned plate on top of a bowl in the microwave and fridge or reusing your old plastic tupperware is always a good idea too! Reusable tupperware can be a great way to swap out single use bags for storing leftovers in the fridge or freezer.
When you're doing your big shop, have a look to see what's available loose and plastic free before reaching for the pre-packaged items. Most supermarkets will provide plenty of loose options at competitive prices too!
Opt for refillable kitchen cleaning products
Ditching the single use cleaning product bottles will save you bags full of plastic bottles every year. Refillable options such as dissolvable sachets and liquid concentrates are widely available, as are bulk buying options where you can refill yourself at home or in refill shops!
When you wash and use plastic cleaning sponges, brushes and cloths, they release micro plastics into the water system which are impossible to remove. They are also not able to be recycled! By simply swapping out your cleaning tools for wooden and bio based options, you can easily reduce plastic pollution coming from your kitchen.
