Game Changers Meal Prep

Meal prep is everything.  I could end the blog post there.  Full stop.  Period.  However, let me explain further.  As a mother of two amazing kiddos, and the founder of Ecopiggy, LIFE IS FULL!  Meal Prep is a Game Changer for our week and our health.   Taking a few hours on the weekend to plan and prep healthy organic food for the week, ensures that when volleyball practice ends at 5:30 on Tuesday, and we are all starving, a nourishing dinner will only take minutes to heat and enjoy!

7 Ways to Swap Out Plastic Wrap

When it comes to preserving food, most of us have become accustomed to the easy, convenient notion of wrapping everything in plastic (and in the process, mummifying it)!  Just open that top drawer in your kitchen filled with plastic baggies, aluminum foil, and most likely, a roll of ubiquitous plastic cling-wrap. With the spotlight on excess plastic waste right now, it’s no wonder we are seeing so many innovative alternatives that offer protection for the environment and even prolong the life of our foods – a win win for all!  {Check out the discounts available for our ReThink Zero-Waste Kits!}

Did you know?

…that in the US, only 1% of plastic bags actually get recycled? Sadly, the rest end up in landfills or oceans. 

I’m sure you’ve been inundated by the topic of plastic shopping bags and bans, more so during this month of extra awareness (#plasticfreejuly)! It’s interesting though, that produce bags (those thin clear or green bags you pull off the roll) get left out of the conversation and they’re just as difficult to recycle or reuse. And, they’re just as massive of a contributor to our trash.
