Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Kitchen Tools

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

If you're anything like me, the kitchen is the hub of your home. It also seems to produce the most waste. From food containers and food scraps to trash bags and kitchen "tools" there is an endless supply of waste.  Because of all this waste, I am loving the new eco friendly (and quite lovely) return of wood and natural bristles in the kitchen. Mercantiles and General Stores are the latest in a stream of simplistic living trends and I hope they are here to stay. They woo me with their beautiful, yet simple, design.

Kaufmann Mercantile favorites:

mineral oil for all those stunning cutting boards
bottle brush - for all my hard to clean water bottles
wool hand duster - goodbye swiffer

Terrain favorites:
pinch & dash - because all of mother's recipes seem to call for them
veggie scrubber
straw handbroom
 horsehair handbroom
 metal straws
enamelware lunch box
bubble up dish brush
goodbye detergent cleaning scrubs
tie string holder - for all those sandwiches wrapped in butcher paper

I mean... These products are so pretty I almost want to be in my kitchen 24 hours a day. But for now, I'll stick to the 5-7 hours I feel I'm in there right now! 

Am I the only one in the world that feels like they're in the kitchen ALL the time? xo
