Kitchen Gifts


Unpaper towels

Most of us cannot imagine life without our paper kitchen towels, but if you want to live sustainable, then these unpaper towels are the zero waste kitchen solution you were looking for. They are both functional (and reusable) while also looking beautiful. This shop has over 40 different prints to be sure there is one that fits your moms' kitchen perfectly.

Vegan wrap set

Storing leftover food without plastic can be a bit of a challenge. Especially if you also want it to be vegan as beeswax wraps are getting quite popular and more accessible. These, however, are just like regular beeswax wraps, but are made with candelilla wax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. So these are completely cruelty free and vegan! Like beeswax wraps, these are moldable with the warmth of your hands so you can cover the bowl with leftovers.

Zero waste coffee maker

Most people love a cup of coffee in the morning. Next to being more eco-friendly, the stainless steel mesh filter that helps extract your coffee's aromatic oils and subtle flavors as these are not being absorbed by a paper coffee filter.

Organic coffee

Next to making a zero waste cup of coffee, make sure that the beans used are also as sustainably produced as possible. Organically produced coffee beans have received less pesticides during production of coffee beans and this brand also support small local producers in Latin America.

Teapot

Do you have tea drinkers in the family? How about a gorgeous teapot to make their drinks much more enjoyable? I love this glass design but there are many more amazing prints available to fit everyones style. There are even ones that come with a tea infuser to make creating a zero waste cup of tea even easier.

Milk is, in most cases, sold in either plastic or a carton which is challenging to recycle. You can avoid this by making delicious nut milk with a Nut Milk Kit. This kit has everything you need to get started with a NutMilk Filter, designed to last a least a year of use, and a convenient canning jar. Then, add water and your favorite nut milk recipe, and you will be good to go! Read more about plant-based milk alternatives to cow milk.
