A Greener Kitchen Review and Giveaway...


Thanks to A Greener Kitchen, we recently had the chance to review a set of reusable cotton produce bags and wall mount bag dryer:
About A Greener Kitchen:
"A Greener Kitchen is your online shop for eco-friendly cooking utensils and kitchen gadgets. We make it easy for you to live a green and healthy lifestyle with bamboo cutting boards, kitchen aprons made from organic fabrics, and biodegradable bags. Recycled plastic colanders, sustainable bag dryers, and bamboo mixing spoons also make great eco-friendly gifts.

Founded by Lacey Lybecker, a self-proclaimed lover of local food, A Greener Kitchen promotes sustainability in the kitchen with our collection of environmentally friendly kitchen tools, gadgets, and accessories.
We believe that being green doesn’t have to be all or nothing; every small step makes a difference. With a cup of recycled plastic colanders, sprinkle of bamboo utensils, an ounce of organic cotton aprons, and a glazing of tips for going green in the kitchen, A Greener Kitchen makes it easy for you and your family to cook and eat in an eco-friendly fashion. A Greener Kitchen sources sustainable kitchen products, gadgets, and accessories from top quality vendors with an eco-friendly focus. They love to cook, we love to cook, and we all do so as sustainably as we know how. These companies include: Bambu, Eco1Nest, Preserve Kitchen, BioBag, and Tailoredwear, Inc."

About Reusable Cotton Produce Bags:
"Eliminate plastic bags and pick up your produce in style. At the grocery store or farmers market, open the bags to fill with your favorite fruits and veggies; then cinch close with the built-in elastic loop. Cut and sewn by family-owned Tailoredwear, Inc, these organic cotton reusable produce bags are made exclusively for A Greener Kitchen using leftover material from our organic cotton aprons. The printed fabric is sourced from Harmony Art, one of the USA’s few eco-friendly textile artisans.
Available Sizes: Small (6"x7"), Medium (9"x9"), Large (12"x16")
Reusable Produce Bag Care: We recommend that the organic cotton bags be hand-washed or washed in cold water using an eco-friendly detergent. For environmental reasons we suggest hanging dry."
About the Wall Mount Bag Dryer:
"Think twice before throwing away your plastic bread bag. With Eco1Nest’s Bed-A-Bag handy bag dryer, you can rinse and re-use them with ease. Both the countertop and wall mount models have seven dowels which store easily in the dryer’s base when not in use.
Made from Forest Stewardship Council certified wood and local sustainably harvested lumber, you can feel good about draping your plastic or cloth bags on the wooden dowels to dry."


What we thought: These were really great bags. They were stylish, lightweight, easy to store and transport and very durable. These bags held up very well on a variety of produce. They are also super easy to clean. The bag dryer was pretty cool, too, and also quite portable. The cotton bags dried very well on the dowels and it can also be used for drying Ziploc bags and other small, wet items:) It was very easy to install and looks cute on our laundry room wall. We love, love, love green products that help us reduce our carbon footprint and A Greener Kitchen has a huge variety of products that do just that. ABCD Diaries gives A Greener Kitchen an A+!!
