Every once in a while I consider going “plastic free” in my kitchen. Yeah – ridding it of ziploc bags, plastic storage containers, etc. and switching to reusable non-paper towels, glass storage, etc. In St. Louis I had these great glass storage containers that are now living in a storage unit. I loved how I didn’t have to worry about toxic chemicals leaching into my leftovers. I also had glass storage canisters that reduced the amounts of things relegated to plastic bags in the pantry. Since moving over here my kitchen has reverted back to being a pretty standard, plastic-filled kitchen. But I do cringe when I’m putting healthy, organic, home-made leftovers into a plastic container. It just seems so counter-intuitive. And every once in a while I troll etsy to see all of the great plastic alternatives available. Here’s a round-up of my latest, no-plastic (and a few others), favorites. I hope anyone out there who is considering the move to using less plastic finds these helpful. Not to mention that some of them are just plain cool!

How adorable is this? Love the color – and the fact that it was originally manufactured in Germany in the 1920s.
