A step towards Sustainability with Brick Brown!

“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.” ~ Robert Swan

When it comes to sustainable living, small changes can make a big impact, and one area where you can make a difference is in your choice of serveware and kitchen tools.
Wooden products are an excellent alternative to plastic or metal options, and can help reduce your environmental footprint.
Wood is a renewable resource: One of the main advantages of wooden kitchenware is that wood is a renewable resource. Unlike plastic, which is made from non-renewable fossil fuels, wood can be sourced from responsibly managed forests. These forests are harvested in a way that allows for new trees to be planted and grown in their place, making wood a sustainable choice.
Wooden products are biodegradable: This means that when these items reach the end of their life, they can break down naturally in the environment. In contrast, plastic ones can take hundreds of years to break down, contributing to pollution and waste.
Wood has natural insulating properties: These are not just good for the environment; they are also good for your food. Wood is a natural insulator, which helps keep food at the desired temperature when serving or preparing. This means that whether you are setting out a tray of cold meal or carving a roast, your food will stay at the right temperature for longer.
Wood has natural anti-bacterial properties: This can help keep your food safe. This is especially important when working with foods that need to be handled carefully.
Durable and long-lasting: With proper care, wooden kitchenware & dinnerware can last for years, making them a durable and long-lasting choice. Regularly oiling the surface can help keep them in good condition, and extend their lifespan. Chopping on wood also save knife edge and better for knife.

In conclusion, these wooden alternatives are a sustainable and functional choice in the kitchen. They are renewable, biodegradable, insulating, anti-bacterial and durable.
When you're ready to replace your wooden tray or chopping board, consider repurposing it or recycling it to give it a new life instead of throwing it away.
