Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! One of the things that’s been a challenge for everyone is avoid excess plastic. I know for myself, I’ve been trying my best to buy things with less packaging or made with sustainable materials. But everyone knows, its tough to avoid plastic all together. A friend, (Hi Jenn!) pointed me to a company called Preserve that creates 100% recycled plastic kitchen and home items that can be recycled back to them when you’re done with them.
Preserve carries a line of good looking kitchenware like cutting boards, colanders, food storage and measuring cups. They also have a line of tableware; plates, cups and utensils, and personal care items like razors and toothbrushes. All in fun colors and safe BPA-Free recycled materials The best part is when you’re done with them or they’ve gotten worn you can drop them off at a Preserve “Gimme 5” Recycling location to be reused for other Preserve products. They also recycle Brita filters! Ever wonder what to do with those? Now you can drop them off at a Gimme 5 location or send them to Preserve to be recycled.
