Everything You Need For A Sustainable KitchenOct 20, 2022
If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, then you know it’s officially Fall and it’s a great time to gather with friends and family, bust out your favorite sweaters, and maybe even get into the cooking/baking mood!
In my town, it has been overcast for the past few weeks, which has given me the perfect excuse to stay home and try out some new recipes. One thing I noticed though is that most of the items in my kitchen can’t be considered “sustainable,” “responsible,” or “preferred.”
Feeling inspired, I spent some time seeking out the best sustainable kitchen items, and thankfully, there’s a wide variety of options out there for any home. So, if you’re looking for some new items for your kitchen, keep reading to see our favorites!
Arguably the most important room in the house, the kitchen serves as the meeting place for a lot of families and is often the place where most memories are made. If you love cooking, you probably value your kitchen more than any other part of your home. I’m right there with you!
Finding quality, stylish, and sustainable kitchen materials is no easy task. However, there are some great companies making high-quality products with social and environmental impacts in mind.
Here are some of our latest finds and loves, we hope you find something you love too!
Our Place - using preferred materials like non-toxic coating free of Teflon, and recycled glass, Our Place has definitely caught our eye. Not to mention, they do a pretty good job of disclosing who’s making their products and where they’re located (a step in the right direction towards transparency!) Our favorite products from them? Check out the Always Pan and the Ovenware Set.

The Little Market - featuring products crafted by artisans around the world, The Little Market is supporting those in low-income or underserved regions to expand their business and gain a sustainable income. In some cases, they offer items with preferred materials like the Bubbled Tall Glass, which is made from recycled glass. If you’re a fan of cocktails, make sure you check out the Etched Margarita Glass. These beautiful designs are made from recycled glass and support artisans from Rose Ann Hall Designs in Mexico.
Coyuchi - traditionally working with bed and bath linens, Coyuchi has branched into the kitchen space as well. Their main staple is GOTS certified organic cotton and expanding their circular initiatives, like 2nd Home Renewed. What caught our eye are the Fillmore Organic Kitchen Towels and the Sonoma Textured Organic Tablecloth. Both of these items come in beautiful earth-toned colors that will suit any home and be stylish for years.

Grove Collaborative - sold online and at Target, Grove Co. sells amazing cruelty-free, organic cleaning products for every need in your house. If you’re sensitive to fragrances, this product was made for you. They also encourage all of their customers to buy reusable and fillable products to cut down on plastic waste. We love the Pure Power Dishwasher Detergent Packs and the Ultimate Dish Soap - they smell wonderful and have the strength to cut through any mess.
EcoCult’s vegan/vegetarian cookbook recommendations - if you are looking to transition to a plant-based diet and don’t know where to start, try these! A lot of people like to get recipes off the internet, but there’s something so handy about having a cookbook ready to go when you need it.
I hope you enjoy these recommendations, and if I forgot to mention a brand, send an email to [email protected] - we’re always looking for new inspiration!
