9 Green Products for a Healthy Kitchen (Page 6)

5. Eco-Friendly Kitchen Storage Containers

We're fans of the line of everyday kitchen tools from Preserve. These practical items—colanders, food-storage containers and cutting boards—also have an environmental purpose. They’re made with 100 percent recycled materials (both plastic and paper), are BPA- and phthalate-free and can be recycled when their useful life is over. Even better, parent company Recycline partnered with product designers Evo Design to make the Preserve items look great and help the designing process meet environmental standards.

Manufactured in the U.S. to minimize shipping, and designed with nature in mind, the red colander is strikingly similar to a strawberry and the storage containers sure do remind us of a tart green apple. Preserve kitchen products can be found at Whole Foods Market or online at; they range in price from $2.79 for a small storage container to $24.99 for a large cutting board.
