This month we are going green in the kitchen! Well, the kitchen sink, to be exact

Between the dish soap, the sponges, the brushes, the scrubbers...there are a lot of things to buy and continually replace when it comes to doing dishes--most of them plastic. Even when you ALREADY have a dish-washer!

You'll be pretty pleased to know that replacing some of these disposable tools is NOT a big investment up front. Turns out just a few good choices in the beginning can make your dish-washing routine a lot more sustainable!

$4.95

This solid wood dish scrubber from B├╝rstenhaus Redecker uses all-natural fiber bristles AND has a replaceable head for a totally plastic-free clean

$4.90

A nice thing about using brushes for your dishes (vs sponges) is they dry faster...which means less bacteria...which means they don't need to be replaced as often

$12.50

When I was young, I used to hang out in bars. Now I USE bars...on EVERYTHING! I was pretty psyched when I found out that you can now buy dish soap in bar form...and just one of these bars can replace up to 6 bottles of dish liquid.

(That's $22.50 worth of Dawn for you detail-oriented types)

$2.49

You're still going to need something absorbent for your countertops...enter the WALNUT sponge! Made from walnut shells, cellulose and recycled plastic--this sponge is tough on messes, gentle to the planet


GRAND TOTAL: $25

Know how much you would have spent if you had bought the disposable stuff?

$19.37

I don't know about you, but I would say that extra $5.63 is money VERY well spent!!!

Got some more good tips and tricks for more sustainable dish-washing???

SEND ME A NOTE!

Sustainably yours,
