We are now on day 10 of the plastic free kitchen challenge and I am really making some progress! One of the hardest areas for me is switching to non-plastic food storage. I have so many plastic containers that it is hard to make this switch. While I was researching alternatives, I came upon Life Without Plastic, a great website devoted to reducing the large quantities of plastic consumed.
Chantal and Jay, co-founders/co-owners run a fabulous retail site Here, a great blog, and started their own product brand Sanctos Mundo. The birth of their son in 2003 is what really drove them to search for alternatives. It’s funny how we can go on for ever knowing these things, but once our children come into the picture, everything changes. My children are what is pushing me to make these changes in our lifestyle as well. There are so many reasons for reducing you plastic use and if you are looking for more information there website and blog are wonderful resources. I especially recommend starting Here and Here.
I was sent one of their stainless steel airtight containers to review. They are made by Sanctos Mundo and can be purchased at Life Without Plastic. They are available in 4 different sizes. It has worked great for me. I used it at first for dinner leftovers. While you can’t microwave it, it is over safe and it’s easy to pop it in the toaster oven to heat up your lunch. I was a bit nervous to use it with a non-solid food, but worked up the courage to try applesauce in it to take in the diaper bag. It was great, no leaks at all! An important thing to note is that it is made of a high quality stainless steel that is food safe and their products are also BPA free. Another great detail for busy mamas like me is that the bottom part is dishwasher safe. You gotta love that!
The fabulous people of Life Without Plastic are offering one lucky Once Upon A Baby reader a chance to win one of their containers.
