Ahead of the Holidays: Simple Clean and Green Kitchen Tips (from ewg.org)

15 Nov

I sometimes avoid reading suggestions on greening my kitchen — or indeed, my life — because they make it seem like everything I touch, clean or consume is bad for me and my family. The cumulative terror, frustration and exasperation (as well as the time, energy and money suck) is just overwhelming and often results in paralysis rather than action.

Having said that, the Environmental Working Group does have some good suggestions, backed up by research, and spooned out in easily-digested, non-toxic (haha) portions that are not so bad going down.

In honor of the impending holidays (and, apparently, in honor of a new fund-raising deal they have with amazon – brace yourself for some product placement) Environmental Working Group has posted tips for a safer, more environmentally friendly kitchen. It is short, sweet and fairly easily incorporated into your life.

Hope you find them useful!

    Having an apple orchard where we have chosen not to use any spray, we are amazed that people think that organic is perfect. The only difference in sprays being used on organic produce is that it is not man made. The products can still be dangerous…nicotine is a prime example of an organic spray which is used often.

      That is FASCINATING — I had NO idea…Thanks so much for this information; I will continue to investigate and think — and worry!

Talk foodie to me, baby...
