Replace your kitchen utensils with more environmentally friendly equivalents

MT : Wooden utensil: Sorting in your kitchen

MD: Wooden utensil: Come to think of it, the kitchen is full of multiple accessories that are not very environmentally friendly.

When we look at the side of kitchen tools, we notice that it consists of products that are harmful to our environment: between plastic spatula, teflon pans, straws and plastic cutlery … What if for once, we changed our habits? What if we replaced the meat fork, plastic strainers, plates and other utensils with eco-friendly tools? Here are the green alternatives to any kitchen accessory.

Select wooden bakeware

When we buy our kitchen accessories : spoons, ladle, fork, and other small utensils, we instantly lean towards plastic. Still, it’s not too late if you want to change your bad habits. For the most common ones like the whisk, knives, cutting board or salad cutlery, the wood is undoubtedly the most environmentally friendly choice.

In addition to being non-polluting, it is always more aesthetic to have beautiful olive wood dishes or a wooden spoon with a design look.

It’wooden utensil is the new trend of tableware!

Glass containers in your kitchen

In the kitchen, replace your tupperware with containers of stoneware or glass, closing with wrap paper. It will be a fabric that will be impregnated with beeswax, perfect for jars, and replacing lids made of plastic or aluminum foil.

To keep your food in bulk such as cookies, pasta or lentils, the glass jars are perfect. You can buy conservation jars or pick up jars purchased at mass distribution. This will allow you to recycle glass intelligently.

Using bamboo straws

Plastic straws are not insignificant sources of pollution. Billions are marketed every day. Between morning coffees, summer aperitifs and other cocktails of all kinds, they simply slip into our glasses. However, they take time to degrade.

You can therefore replace them with compostable and biodegradable paper equivalents at home, made of stainless steel, starch or glass. Our favorite? The bamboo straw. The bamboo is a durable material, which will adapt to multiple climates and grows quickly. It does not need fertilizers or phytosanitary products.

And if we choose recycled equivalents?

Do you know that our cake molds, our pans and our pans, are made from teflon, which contains endocrine disruptors? These are highly carcinogenic products, responsible for multiple genital formations. In addition, when the temperature reaches 230 ° C, teflon can be very toxic.

An interesting alternative remains cast iron and stainless steel. Both of these materials are much healthier and stronger.

If before, there were no kitchen utensils made with recycled materials, the Tefal brand launches the So Recycled range: a range of utensils for your culinary preparations based on recycled materials. This range is made of 100% recycled aluminum. This makes it possible to consume 90% less CO2. In addition, it is more durable and sturdy, if we compare it with the classic metal.

A glass or wooden coffee maker: We’re trying!

Rather than buying an electric coffee maker, why not buy a greener model ? There are coffee makers that are made of glass, wood with a touch of leather. These are coffee makers, like those at Chemex, working with a simple paper filter and hot water.

Not only is the flavor of the coffee simply exquisite, but in addition, the coffee maker will stand proudly on your worktop, with its chic and aesthetic look.

Eating out with eco-friendly dishes

Between plastic cups, bottles or tupperware, eating outdoor is not really an ecological operation. This is a great reason to opt for more environmentally friendly equivalents.

For your travels, invest in a bottle or a reusable water bottle. Whether it is made of glass or stainless steel, the gourd can be kept for a long time and will save you from producing waste. And to take away your dishes, we advise you to bet on the old Japanese bento box, a classic! For your disposable cutlery, there are equivalents that are made of bamboo, which are reusable after cleaning. In addition, they are much prettier and more chic than their plastic counterparts.

Cleaning items in her kitchen

In addition to the kitchen knife, the cutting board, the pastry articles … Many are the equivalents that can be found in his kitchen. Precisely, even on the side of cleaning, you can count on various eco-friendly equipment and design.

To rinse your plates and cutlery, you can use cleaners based on white vinegar, baking soda or Marseille soap. To complete your range of products, you should not forget about common accessories such as sponge or brushes. But you can replace the classic sponge with the Tawashi sponge. It is a sponge made of rope, wool or textile. For brushes, you will replace plastic models with beautiful wooden brushes.

A recipe idea to make your dishwashing liquid

In order to create organic dishwashing liquid, you will need the following ingredients :

  • 50 g of Marseille soap ;
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar ;
  • 10 drops of essential oil of your choice ;
  • 1 liter of water ;
  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda.

You will only have to heat the water in a saucepan and add the soap shavings. Let cool before adding baking soda, vinegar and H.E. Let cool before pouring the mixture into the container.

Practical and environmentally friendly disposable tableware

Whether it’s sales professionals or individuals, the use of disposable items should be done in a thoughtful way. Ecological awareness and changes in the law are leading us towards responsible consumption, gradually abandoning prohibited products.

The challenge of disposable tableware for catering professionals

The ever faster rhythms of life of our modern societies have naturally led to the development of fast food for a meal taken on the go. The sandwich, fast food or other flagship take-away food market has also developed the use of single-use food packaging.


In addition to their usefulness as tableware and the function facilitating the transport of processed food, disposable tableware is customizable and thus makes it possible to mark the brand’s customers more strongly. The packaging of the product being as important as the content, the personalized tumbler (for a take-away drinks sign for example) becomes a advertising tool and therefore should not be neglected.


Straw, tray, plastic cutlery or plastic bottles are all waste that may end up in the oceans. These disposable products therefore have a environmental impact alarm. Fortunately, the ton of waste generated per year by this market has led to the creation of biodegradable, compostable or recyclable products as an alternative to plastic.


The cardboard tumbler to reduce environmental pollution

Among the widely used disposable products, the disposable cup is positioned quite well. With a varied capacity, it allows both to effectively maintain the temperature for hot and cold drinks. Plastic cup or cardboard cup, the second category is gaining momentum at the time of coffee break.


The cardboard cup indeed has many advantages :

  • lighter than the plastic version, it does not bend even when filled ;
  • the customization of the product makes it attractive;
  • the wide range of product available according to the uses: cardboard cup with different layers for its insulating capacity ;
  • less bulky than a mug because it is stackable ;



But the biggest argument in favor of the cardboard cup is the ecological argument. It is reusable. Using a little imagination, a disposable cardboard cup, for example, can be used as a flower pot in the kitchen.

Finally, the cup is recyclable. If the thin layer of plastic present inside the cardboard cups has long made doubt the eco-friendly aspect of the product, recycling companies have now developed a know-how to separate the two materials.


Giving a second life to the recyclable disposable product

The awareness of the life cycle disposable equipment generates a greater commitment to “after” use. It makes it possible to strive for zero waste consumption and when it comes to the environment, there are no small actions.


The example of the diversion of the initial function of the object (goblet in flower pot) is just one example among many. A cardboard plate can be used in plastic arts, a decorated glass to make a table decoration.

The other possibility – if you don’t have the creative fiber – is to recycle. Only one precaution to take to make the cardboard recyclable: empty it before putting it in the sorting bin.

The material can be recycled about ten times before the fiber degrades. Recycled cardboard makes it possible to give life to new food packaging, shoe boxes, furniture or even decorative objects.

Towards the replacement of plastic with cardboard for food packaging

At a time of global warming and other ecological issues, it is no longer possible to ignore the impact of single-use plastic in our daily consumption. Difficult to recycle, rarely biodegradable, it should be preferred to greener materials. Cardboard in all its forms is also the preferred material to replace it.

Problems related to the use of plastic

The first problem raised by the use of tableware and plastic cups is a concern forenvironmental impact. Plastic waste, even when it is recyclable (such as PET for example), still pollutes a lot because it is often thrown into the regular trash can and is only very little recommended for use in catering. And given the constantly growing production of waste, it is essential to change the methods to participate in the energy transition.


The other problem of plastic use concerns the health and the presence of bisphenol in the production of many plastics. This chemical substance poses a real danger to the health of consumers. Although plastics with any trace of bisphenol A are now banned in food packaging, it is often replaced by bisphenol S – the non-toxicity of which has not yet been demonstrated.


Prefer cardboard that can be more easily recycled and that is biodegradable and sometimes even compostable (to simply throw in your compost bin at home). Whether it is produced from bamboo wood or from kraft cardboard, the cardboard tumbler will make you forget about your white or transparent plastic cups.


Cardboard cups suitable for all types of drinks

If we mistakenly think that the offer of cardboard is not as extensive as that of plastic where we have a wide choice among which we find unbreakable plastic and rigid plastic, know that there is also a wide range of cardboard, to name only flat cardboard and corrugated cardboard.


If any kind of cardboard tumbler easily lends itself to the role of containers for cold drinks, for hot drinks it is better to give preference to those made from thick corrugated cardboard. They are usually equipped with a double wall which allows you to handle them easily despite the fact that they contain a hot drink. Most petrol stations, restaurants and fast food outlets offering takeaway coffee have already adopted cardboard.


Fast food is getting on the bandwagon

The world of fast food has long taken into consideration ecological concerns and have followed suit by adopting a eco-responsible approach.  They have indeed reduced their use of plastic by banning the plastic cup in favor of the cardboard cup for their drinks and sodas of all kinds. Another approach taken by the fast food industry is also to abandon the use of plastic straws, to favor the use of cardboard straws that are much more environmentally friendly.


It is therefore important for professionals in the catering and food industry in general to follow this example of fastfoods and participate in these positive movements for the environment and promote the green growth. In addition, being also customizable like their plastic equivalent, it will always be possible for you to have printed cardboard cups.


Unless you have the means to set up a reusable cup system against setpoint, in a growing company, the choice of cardboard cup is the most suitable. And by visiting professionals in the sale of disposable products, you can even save money by choosing models at discount prices but still eco-responsible.

The wines of France occupy a central place in the world of wine, Bordeaux wine like pinot noir have an international reputation and are consumed at all the tables of the world. Starting with France, where food and wine pairings are legion both in haute cuisine and in the privacy of homes. That’s why many French people want to build a wine cellar, but when you want to launch, you never really know where to start.

If it is quite possible to go through the large distribution to stock up, it is strongly recommended to visit your wine merchant.

Finally, going through a wine shop is also a guarantee to find local wines (from the Rhone Valley to the hillsides of Lyonnais). And, a privilege offered by the wine merchants will give you that you will rarely find in the large distribution – if ever – it is that of the wine tasting in order to refine your choice among the proposed wines.


Vary the bottles in your wine cellar

A good wine cellar is above all a varied cellar, a cellar representative of the wines of the world. Even if France has this chauvinistic reputation, when it comes to wines, there is no harm in opening up to foreign wines (Italian wines are fine wines just as famous as French wines).


It is therefore important to vary your buying habits to always discover new wines. For example, here are some supply channels :

  • Visit directly the grower from wine regions: this will allow you to discover new grape varieties and awaken your taste buds to new aromas ;
  • Going to a wine fair or a wine fair: this kind of event will sometimes allow you to find real treasures ;
  • Auctions: the best way to find old vintages, great wines or crus classés ;
  • Go through the sale of wine on the internet: the advantage of this method will be to find a wide range of wines quickly and easily.


Take pleasure in building up your collection

A tip that seems obvious: unless you start a sommelier conversion or see wine as an investment, the constitution of your cellar must remain a pleasure.


So first choose wines that you like. Do not stop at appellations or trends, compose your cellar with passion, like a wine bar that would constitute its wine list.
