Did you know that plastic is causing tons of environmental problems for our earth? Or that it harbours serious health risks for those who are the most vulnerable amoung us...our children? Although plastic has a lot of great qualities and seemingly works well, the fact that it is used SO much is beginning to become a problem for our health and our earth. I was delighted to discover a great Canadian website called Life Without Plastic. Their site is packed full of information, helpful hints, and great alternatives. They also have a huge line of non-plastic products you can buy. Who knew there were so many great alternatives available? I love seeing the different options and dreaming about how I can get rid of more of the plastic items in my home. Life Without Plastic got us started though and sent a Stainless Steel Water/Juice Jug. And I must say, we are definitely enjoying our new jug. It holds 2 Litres, looks sleek, modern and elegant, and is MUCH safer than the plastic jug I used to use! One of my other features about our new Stainless Steel Jug is that it is unbreakable...no cracking, no falling apart - this thing is definitely built to stand the test of time.
Life Without Plastic has safer alternatives for almost anything in your kitchen! They have the cutest little bowls and dishes for kids. They've got stainless steel food containers, lunch kits, cups, and they even carry some more unique items like the bamboo utensils. Plus there's always new products being added. :) I found the selection and the quality of the products at Life Without Plastic to be absolutely wonderful.
WIN IT! Life Without Plastic is giving away TWO of their fabulous products to TWO of our readers! The two pirzes include a 12 cm airtight-watertight food storage container OR a 14 cm round food storage container with fold-out handle. In order to get one entry, head over to Life Without Plastic and tell us about one thing you loved or learned.
