    24 Eco-Friendly Kitchen Tools That'll Turn You Into A Totally Green Cooking Machine

    I've got a green thumb, and I'm not afraid to use it.

    1. A set of four measuring cups that'll come in handy during your culinary adventures. They're made of recyclable (and fully compostable) wheat husks and interlock neatly for easy-peasy storage.

    2. These food-safe silicone bags that'll give you a place to stash snacks, fruit, makeup, or even wet clothes. The pinch-lock system protects your stuff, so you could even use them to cook your dinner ~en sous-vide~, if that's more your vibe.

    3. A roll of beeswax wrap that'll help you ditch all those single-use plastics. The best part is you can customize the size of the wrap to fit even the teensiest leftovers (like the last bite of burger from last night).

    4. A glassware brush that'll reach right down to the bottom of tall cups and wine glasses. Reviewers say it easily removes lipstick and water stains from delicate glassware, and can even be used to scrub pots and pans (without damaging any non-stick finishes).

    5. This click-and-tear paper towel dispenser that'll help you grab only as much as you need. The weighted base and silicone ticker make it easy to tear with just one hand — perfect if you're rocking sticky hands.

    6. Or these reusable towels that'll make you wonder why you ever bought regular paper towels in the first place. One roll of these super-absorbent and extra-strong cloths can replace up to 60 rolls of traditional paper towels.

    7. This dish bar that'll help you scrub up after meals, while forgoing wasteful packaging. It's free of synthetics and scented with zesty grapefruit essential oil, so your dishes will smell as good as they look.

    8. A little spice lid that'll help you repurpose old Mason jars into spice shakers, instead of just tossing them into the trash. It's equipped with two flip-up options, so you'll be able to dust or pour with ease.

    9. A handy recycling station that'll help you reduce your carbon footprint. It has clearly-marked compartments for glass, plastic, and cardboard, so you won't have to sort through your trash.

    10. A set of candy-coloured nesting bowls that'll never rust or chip. They're made of biodegradable bamboo fibre and can be tossed into the dishwasher after you're done whipping up a delish meal.

    11. These silicone muffin liners that'll help you ditch papery waste during your baking adventures. Because they're naturally non-stick, you'll be able to skip cooking spray AND spend less time peeling away the wrapper the next time you wanna indulge in a treat.

    12. This flexible ice pack that'll conform to whatever container you put it in. Its fabric sleeve means it won't get covered in condensation (or make your food soggy in the process), and will never crack or split like its plastic cousins.

    13. This silicone pod lid that'll reduce the need for wasteful plastic wrap and tinfoil, and protect your food from pests during outdoor dining. It's oven safe and can be used in the microwave, fridge, and freezer.

    14. This natural hand soap that won't dry out your skin, no matter how many times you lather up. Even though it easily tackles all kinds of greasy and sticky messes, it won't take FOREVER to rinse off your hands (and it smells so freakin' good, too).

    15. A pair of silicone baking mats that'll help you say, "good riddance!" to annoying aluminum foil and parchment paper. They're flexible, reusable, and best of all, won't tear when you're trying to flip your food.

    16. An adorable cutting board that's just the right size for prepping snacks. It's lightweight, easy to clean, and made of eco-friendly bamboo that'll make you want to skip the plastic version.

    17. A set of sponge cloths that'll help you clean your kitchen without leaving streaks or smudges. They're incredibly absorbent and can last for up to 200 washes — goodbye, single-use wipes!

    18. These airtight food canisters that'll help keep all your dry goods fresher for longer and look cute as heck, too. If you love decanting all your kitchen ingredients, you can't go wrong with these — reviewers say the bamboo lids lock out air and moisture, so your flours, pastas, beans, and snacks stay crisp and fresh till the very end.

    19. A roll of biodegradable compost liners that'll make disposal of organic waste a lot easier. At eight litres, they're big enough to stash tons of fruit peels, egg shells, and other kitchen waste, without worrying about overflow.
