Before all else, pat yourself on the back for the initiative. It all begins with the thought, but it is more than just a thought; it is a way of living. Home is the best place to start with; after all, Charity begins at home. Here are some tips and tricks which can help you to kickstart your sustainable journey.
SWITCH TO ECO-FRIENDLY COOKWARE:
Going green is rapidly becoming the norm, and the kitchen is a great place to start making environmentally friendly changes to your lifestyle. From the food you buy to the way it’s cooked and stored, you can save energy, reduce your carbon footprint and keep an eye on your budget in many different ways.
Plastic is everywhere. Don’t be surprised when I say a whopping 91% of the plastics produced to date haven’t been recycled yet. Yes, 91%.
Plastic has subtly become an inherent part of our day-to-day lifestyle. Sometimes we use plastics and other non-recyclable products without even knowing that they aren’t recyclable; or, let’s say that we are not yet mindful of it. People say Ignorance is bliss, but not when your ignorance is so colossal that it will impact the world in a negative way.
Buying a cast Iron is the best decision you can take to transform your kitchen and life towards sustainable living.
- Cast iron likes Indian weather and likes to be dry – don’t leave your pan to soak in water for long periods. Water will corrode your seasoned non-stick surface and rust wills start to form. Always store your cast iron pan in a dry location.
- Never put cast iron pan in the dishwasher. Doing so will remove the seasoned surface.
- Cast iron corrodes really fast so after cleaning your cast iron, dry it thoroughly and wipe it down inside and out with a small amount of oil. This also keeps it in prime shape for your next use.
- Make upcycled cloth towels which can be used in place of paper towels for more eco-friendly cleaning
