Ever take a close look inside your refrigerator?

Chemicals from plastic products can seep into our food, ending up in our bodies – and once we get rid of these plastic items, many times they wind up in our landfills. There are lots of ways to keep your food (and your waste!) fresh and clean – check out these alternatives for your fridge!

Breaking news: your bathroom can be just as sustainable as the rest of your home!
