Hello friends, today I’d like to share something important about How to Help Our Mother. Not Mom, Mama, Mum, but our collective mother, mother earth. Many of you already know that hubby and I try and leave a very small footprint on our planet. We reuse, recycle, and repurpose all that we can. Unfortunately, our city still doesn’t have recycling at home (just green waste) so we do have to make the “extra effort” to take our recycled items to a recycling center.
When Anna from Zip Top (a USA Company) contacted me about trying their endlessly reusable 100% platinum silicone, plastic free, food storage containers, I was quick to answer yes!
After using their containers in all of the possible ways, in the freezer, in the microwave, in the fridge, in the dishwasher (top rack) and, by literally eating straight from the Zip Top container I am convinced these BPA, Lead and PVC free containers are a huge win for our planet and our grocery bill.
Can you imagine how good you will feel knowing 5000 (or more) plastic sandwich bags were not used by you? Yay You!!
The great Pacific Ocean garbage patch floating around in our Pacific Ocean which extends from California to Hawaii is approximately 617,000 square miles in size, according to The Ocean Cleanup. That is a patch of garbage containing a lot of plastic and combined human waste that is about twice the size of Texas!
The plastic bags that don’t end up there end up in our landfills where it takes approximately 300 years for plastic to biodegrade. While it’s breaking down it is leeching dangerous methane and carbon dioxide gases into the air as well as highly toxic particles, aka microplastics, into “mother earth”.
What a great feeling it is to know that you can save 5000 plastic bags from being used by using just one of the Zip Top reusable containers!
Okay you get it, mother earth needs our help and you can help in a big way by using this food grade, made in the USA product, Zip Top containers. But, there’s more (smile).
- Zip top containers come in a variety of colors (mine are lavender).
- They have flat bottoms so they don’t tip over.
