How to get a plastic free kitchen? Silicone Food Bags of course!
Zip Bag Alternatives
If you read that UN climate report and felt like doing something, well, replacing Ziploc bags with washable silicone bags probably won’t save our future, sorry. But it certainly doesn’t hurt! And they can actually pay for themselves over time, since you won’t have to keep buying disposable bags at the store.
A great alternative: food grade silicone. Silicone is inert, doesn’t out gas or leach dioxin or lead or phthalates. It’s non-toxic, safe for food, resists microbes, is easy to clean and stands up to hot and cold temperatures. They are affordable, and if you take care of these bags they will last a very long time.
