Kitchen Spaces

Stop Buying Single-Use Food Items

  • Stage 1:
    • Reusable Water Bottle
    • Reusable Travel Mugs
  • Stage 2:
    • Bamboo or Metal Utensils
    • Reusable Plates or Bowls (or just eat out of the container you brought the food in)
  • Stage 3:
    • Plastic Free Lunch Boxes/Containers (Also get them filled if you get food to go while at lunch)

Stage 1:

Does your office use a single serving coffee machine such as a Keurig?
An alternative solution is to purchase a coffee pot machine that brews multiple cups at once without the need for a single-use plastics. Most coffee machines can also be equipped with a metal filter so there is never a moment the office is out of filters. It will also keep the coffee hot for you.

Stage 2:

Purchasing kitchen towels instead of paper towels
In order to make management and cleaning simple. Work with the office as a whole to get up a cleaning schedule. That passes around the responsibility of cleaning the towels. That way everyone has ownership in the process.
