Preserve Products kitchen Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! One of the things that have been a challenge for everyone is avoiding excess plastic.  I know for myself, that I’ve been trying my best to buy things with less packaging or made with sustainable materials.  But everyone knows, it’s tough to avoid plastic altogether.  A friend, (Hi Jenn!) pointed me to a company called Preserve Recycled Plastic Products which 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.

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.

If your looking to reduce the amount of plastics in your life check out our Alternatives to Plastic Water Bottles and Sippy Cups Cheat Sheet.

Where and How: You can find a list of  Gimme 5 locations on their website as well as purchase their totally recycled products online at PreserveProducts.com.
