  1. Hi, We’ve got a few of the stainless steel containers and they really are nice. They’re easy to keep clean as we just wash them in the dishwasher.

    Good point about the cutlery. I could easily see my kids accidentally tossing them in the trash or losing them at school! So, what I do for now is give them cutlery from an old set of silverware. That way if they lose it, it’s not a huge loss.

  2. Hi, Thanks for the inspiration! Eco-conscious DIY projects are my absolute favorites. I have a box of old shirts and sweaters that I love but don’t fit anymore so I’m definitely going be making some of those pillows this weekend.Zero Waste Store
