People talk about wanting to being green all the time, yet say it is too hard. What they don't understand is how simple it actually is. There are a lot of things you can do to be more green especially in the kitchen. For example: switch from plastic containers to glass, use eco-friendly dish soap and chemical free cleaning products and grow your own or buy local whenever you can.
I do my best to be green, so you can imagine how happy I was to learn about the Made-To-Matter program at Target. The program makes it even easier to go green by offering effortless access to high quality better for the earth products. Items like Seventh Generation dish soap, Method dishwasher detergent and Justin's All Natural Nut Butters to name a few. I like the idea of being able to shop in one store to find all the green products I need for my kitchen. Let's face it...it's up to us to make a difference and what we purchase for our kitchen is a great place to start.
Even more exciting is that starting in August one of my favorite yogurt brands, Stonyfield, will be part of the program (you can read more about that here). Stonyfield co-founders have been on a mission since the early 1980's to help family farms survive, keep food and food production healthy and help protect the environment. The details of their exclusive-to-Target line of organic yogurt is still under wraps, (think coconut & maple) but you can expect to see 6 new certified organic, gluten free and completely delicious flavors on the Target shelves soon.
What do you do in your kitchen to be a little greener?
I have an ongoing relationship with Stonyfield as a member of the Clean Plate Club. I receive product, coupons and compensation for posts featuring their products. As always, all opinions are 100% my own
