Now, let's go to the tips:
1) Be careful with your waste:
Always try to cook only the amount of food you need, so that you can avoid food waste.
Also consider recycling your food waste such as vegetable peelings, eggshells or loose tea...
The vegan food wraps from Beewise are ideal for keeping half of fruits and vegetables fresh in and out of the fridge, avoiding them to go to the garbage or to become inedible. They let food breathe and preserve it! You can reuse these food wraps over and over again without having to throw them away after a single-use. Just wash them with cold water and a mild soap and they’ll be ready to go for the next batch of produce you bring in!
2) Reduce your plastic consumption and one use items
Use reusable lids and swap plastic straws and cups for recycled plastic.
For example you can try to avoid single-use items like baking paper. Once this type of item is disposable after one or a few uses it creates loads of waste and can’t be recycled because it is made by a mix of plastic and silicone, furthermore the bleached paper has toxic dioxin, which is released when heated. Instead opt for a reusable baking mat, that you can use for a thousand times. It has a non-sticky surface, and doesn’t release toxins. This item is dishwasher safe and can be used in a range of -70ºC to 260ºC. You can find this amazing reusable baking mat that saves many resources at our website.
3) Pay attention to the energy losses of your household appliances
Refrigerators are energy-intensive appliances. Storing food means closing the fridge door properly.
If you are not sure about buying a fridge, look for an A++ class fridge, which consumes much less energy.
4) More responsible shopping
For your shopping, think of buying in bulk or near your home, in local stores. And, give preference to bulk foods.
When you go shopping opt for a reusable tote bag, and avoid single use bags. For example a multi-pocket shopping bag made with organic cotton, can be very practical to carry all the products from the supermarket or any other type of items. See the options of Beewise with their creative sentences on the tote bags!
They have a natural color, provide easy air circulation, have a neat cotton pull string to prevent products from falling out, and making it perfect for short-term food storage.
5) Avoid the bin
As far as possible, try to always reuse any leftover you have. For the rest, use selective sorting!
