The Green Kitchen on Facebook Live (Notes)

If you caught my Facebook Live event on The Green Kitchen, here are some notes to help you connect with resources that I mentioned for the three topics I covered: composting the lazy way, incorporating reusable cloths around the house so you can ditch paper towels, and replacing non-stick cookware with healthier options. When there is a specific brand that I like, I’ve linked that exact one. When it’s whole a category I talked about, but I don’t have a brand preference, I’ve provided a search on Amazon for you based on some key words. Disclaimer: this post contains affiliate links. If you click through and buy something, I may receive a small commission at no additional expense to you.

1. Composting the Lazy Way

 
Americans represent 5% of the world’s population but generate 30% of the world’s garbage. The average American throws away 4.5 pounds of trash a day. What we reduce and reuse can make a difference! Commercial recycling should always be a distant third to the other two R’s. However, recycling at home–like through composting–is an impactful, doable step.

The book that got me started was Composting by Liz Ball. It is simple and non-gimmicky.

 

Products relating to composting if you don’t want to DIY:


2. Reusable Cloths

The Paperless Project points out that the paper industry is the third largest contributor to global warming. This industry uses trees at a high rate and pollutes loads of water in the processing.

Our cute wet/dry bag that hangs in the kitchen. Click on the image to go to the product page on Abby’s Lane. Our not-cute wetbag (which we use when this one is in the wash) is a really worn out cloth diaper pail liner that I added a hanging strap to. Planetwise Wetbag

3.  Non Non-Stick-Coating Cookware

Kirkland Stainless Steel Cookware Set only at Costco– the copper-bottomed set that I have is no longer sold, but this one looks similar. It’s a great price point!

Lard from J&L Green Farm– a natural source of Vitamin D. It’s great for seasoning cast iron and as a cooking fat. I especially love to pop popcorn on the stovetop in it.

Stainless Steel Baking Sheets– This two-piece set is often on sale for under $30. The pans do warp while in the hot oven, but they flatten again when they cool. Our set has been amazing so far, things don’t stick and it cleans up easily.

About More Green for Less Green

Hi, I’m Pamm. Welcome to my little slice of the web! As a progressive Evangelical female pastor and crunchy homeschooling mom, I’m never quite what anyone expects of me. But, hey, that’s what makes blogging interesting, right? Join me as I try to wholeheartedly parent my three little boys, slowly fix up the trashed foreclosure we bought in 2009, and live simply.
