11. $aving On: The Humble Kitchen Sponge

TLDL?: Stop buying sponges, buy something more durable like cleaning cloths.

Show Notes

I was spending $20 USD a year roughly on cleaning sponges, I also didn’t like throwing them away. I looked for an alternative, at the moment its the microfibre cleaning cloth to clean my dishes and kitchen worktops with.

TLDL?: I make the point that we need to be mindful of what we eat and we can still eat our treats in more environmentally friendly ways.

TIPS:

  1. Eat your ice-cream from a restaurant in your own bowl if they don’t provide one. Also ask for a discount just incase they see the benefit of you using your own utensils.

  2. Eat an ice-cream with an ice-cream cone from an ice-cream van. Where is the waste?

Show Notes

Experimental for me, I podcast on location in a 711 with some wireless headphones as a spur of the moment thing. I share my last ice-cream, which came from a packet, with you, to make the point there are cleverer ways to eat what you want without creating waste.
