GO GREEN in your Kitchen: A KPLR 11 Segment

I got a reminder from a (Subaru) car commercial this morning which said:  "Caring for the environment means exercising compassion and restraint".  There are so many ways we can contribute as individuals to care for Mother Earth.  And I've always been guided by the 3Rs: Reuse, Recyle and Reduce.

And to contribute to Going Green in the kitchen, I have lined up some eco-friendly products for my guest appearance at KPLR 11 (St. Louis).

Product #1:  COOKINA Non-Stick Cooking Sheets

COOKINA is an eco-conscious brand committed to providing environmentally friendly alternatives to wasteful usage of aluminum foil, parchment and wax paper as the products are reusable. The COOKINA Grilling Sheet, Cooking Sheet and Oven Gard allow for easy clean-up for their grills, cookie pans and ovens. Available at www.cookina.co

Pricing:  BBQ = $14.99 / Cuisine and Gard = $12.99 

Product #2:  Carrington Organics Tea
This is the first-ever 100% recyclable and eco-friendly tea. The packaging will fully and safely biodegrade when composted, as it is made of renewable wood pulp. It comes in three delicious flavors:  Herbal, Green Tea Lemon and Chamomile.  MSRP: $3.99/ 20 tea bags per package, available at WalMart, grocery stores and online at www.CarringtonTea.com.

Product # 3:  Excalibur 5-Tray Clear Door Dehydrator
This is perfect for dehydrating fruits, vegetables and meats.  It has a 26-hour timer and and adjustable thermostats (from 105 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit).  The Excalibur dehydrator aids in food storage, as it helps preserve fresh fruits and vegetables, thus avoiding food waste.

Price:  $269.95 at  www.excaliburdehydrator.com

Product # 4:  Zabada Kitchen Glove

    Premium micro-fiber cleaning technology removes 99% of bacteria just by using water.  Just wet, wipe and dry - Zabada lasts for a couple of years, thus saving you money by no longer needing as much paper towels to clean the kitchen. 

    Price: $40.00 for the Kitchen Glove.  Available at www.zabadaclean.com 

    Product #5:  Coyuchi’s Shaded Herringbone Kitchen Towels 

    Loomed from pure 100% organic cotton, in a durable herringbone weave.  Meets the Global Organic Textile Standard [GOTS], the toughest organic-textile standard in the world.  Again, a good alternative to using paper towels.

    Price:  $18 at www.coyuchi.com

    I hope you found these unique kitchen products as interesting as I did. Thanks again to KPLR 11's noon time show host Elliott.  And a Happy Earth Day to all
