Last week a very good mummy-friend of mine asked me why I choose to use glass to store our food in, over durable, effective plastic storage solutions such as Tupperware. It was very brave of her to ask me this, as all my friends know I can chew their ears off when I get talking
One of the first commonly used items we switched away from plastic was our water bottles. Plastic is an enduringly popular choice for drink bottles, despite health risks, because it’s cheap and just plain practical. There is no denying that silicone covered glass or stainless steel water bottles are significantly more expensive than plastic bottles,
Growing up, I only ever recall storing our vegetables in the plastic bins at the bottom of the fridge. Now that we don’t use them anymore I have to say that I found them so irritating! Like cutlery drawers, those vege drawers would always fill up with debris that I just never got around to cleaning
When it comes to dangerous chemicals, whether you’re eco-friendly or not, the laundry must be the hub of the house (well, perhaps excepting the garage). We have only just recently attached child-proofing gadgets to our kitchen cupboards, as little Daniel is very inquisitive and likes to go digging around in any little nook and cranny below waist height.
