Hey, friend! Welcome to my eco-friendly zero waste-ish kitchen.
Are you looking for the best zero waste kitchen swaps for your eco-friendly lifestyle but have NO idea where to begin? I have here the best low waste kitchen swaps that I’ve been loving! We dive deep into every corner of the kitchen for this blog! So if you are looking for natural dishwashing pods, sustainable cleaning cloths and dishwashing brushes or eco-friendly options for baking and cooking, you’ll find it all here! Cheers to a more sustainable kitchen! 🎉
Sitting in the top 3 for sustainable, eco-friendly dishwasher pods and tablets are from Blueland, Cleancult and Dropps. Honestly, I haven’t noticed a huge difference among them all, so I recommend all of these options to clean your dishes!
Here you’ll find dishwasher tablets that come completely plastic-free! Blueland does not use any harsh chemicals or plastic in their products so they are a perfect sustainable option to make your dishes squeaky clean! You can buy Blueland dishwasher tablets here.
An eco-friendly dishwashing tablet option that comes in a 100% recyclable paper-based box! Another great zero waste option with no harmful chemicals to leave your dishes spotless! You can order Cleancult dishwasher tablets here.* Use the code STROLL for 20% off^
Dropps has two great dishwasher pod options – lemon scent or unscented! You won’t need to prewash and they use natural minerals to rinse your dishes! You can buy Dropps pods here.* Use code DROPPS15 for 15% off*
One of my favorites right now is the Blueland dish soap! I wish it wasn’t a powder as it is a bit of a messy clean up when you refill… BUT the powder mess is a small price to pay when it does a really good job with grease and grime on all of my dishes! It has a gritty texture in the dish soap which helps to scrub off all those bits and pieces. You can buy the Blueland dish soap here.
Cleancult dish soap is a liquid option that comes in a milk carton. Of course, it isn’t the perfect zero waste option, but it still does the job and is a much better alternative to plastic bottles. This is a great refill system. Plus they have a carton recycling program! You can explore the Cleancult dish soap options here. Use the code STROLL for 20% off^
Klean Kanteen* has a great bottle brush option that also comes with an option to clean your reusable straws!
EarthHero* has a brush with a removable head which makes it a great sustainable option because you can compost it when it is time for a new one. The most ecofriendly option is to keep the handle and just buy new brush heads when you need them. Click here to check out the dish brush.* Use code STROLLINGTHROUGHLIFE for 10% off**.
This one is my newest and possibly my most favorite swap in the kitchen! The Swedish dishcloth is soo easy and great to use! It is a great replacement for the messy sponge and single-use plastic towels. It’s even easier to clean it, you simply put this zero waste dishcloth in the dishwasher or washing machine to clean. It is completely plant-based so it is compostable!! These are three great options for Swedish Dishcloths:
I’m thoroughly obsessed with the Always Pan and you will always find one in my kitchen! If you are looking for a non-stick AND non-toxic pan this one will be LIFE changing! It is from Our Place and actually non-stick for real… highly, highly recommend it! You can find the Always Pan here.
This is another favorite and obsession in my kitchen. If you have produce that goes bad pretty quickly in your fridge then this is a great device to keep them fresher for long! Just keep it damp, put your produce in and put it in the friday. I have a full review on this one if you want to check it out here. You can buy your Vejibag on EarthHero here.* Use code STROLLINGTHROUGHLIFE for 10% off.**
I have a tonne of these bags as an ecofriendly alternatie to ziplock bags! They are great even outside of the kitchen. I’ll use them for snacks, or when travelling with my toiletries. You can put this in your dishwasher to clean out (massive plus)! The only downside I’ve experienced is when I put liquids in this… the food seems to absorb a unique flavor? Just me? You can find your stasher bag on Earth Hero here!* Use code STROLLINGTHROUGHLIFE for 10% off.**
I try to reuse a lotttttt of plastic containers and mason jars that I already have to be as sustainable and zero waste as I can be! But I also have some glass container options with a plastic snap top that are perfect for the microwave! You can find some great glassware options here! *
Who doesn’t love to bake some goodies in their kitchen! I’ve stopped using single-use parchment paper or alumnium foil, and replaced it with reuseable silicone Baking sheets instead! are a great swap for parchment paper or aluminum foil! You can find some great Silicone baking sheets on Earth Hero here. * Use code STROLLINGTHROUGHLIFE for 10% off.**
Last but not least, we all have some hand soap sitting by our kitchen sink. I’ve tried my fair share of low waste hand soaps in my time and I have to say that Cleancult has some of the best reusable glass bottle options and soaps! You can find the Cleancult dissolvable hand soap options here! If you use the code STROLL at checkout you will get 20% off your first purchase.^
