Plastic Free July is a global movement that encourages people to reduce their use of single-use plastics for the month of July. This is a great opportunity to make some sustainable changes in your kitchen, starting with your cutting boards.
Plastic cutting boards are a common household item, but they're not the best choice for the environment. Plastic is a non-renewable resource that takes hundreds of years to break down in landfills. It can also leach harmful chemicals into food, especially when it's cut with acidic foods like tomatoes or citrus fruits.
Wood cutting boards, on the other hand, are a much more sustainable option. Wood is a renewable resource that can be harvested without harming the environment. It's also naturally antibacterial, so it doesn't need to be washed with harsh chemicals. Wood cutting boards can last for many years with proper care, so they're a much better investment than plastic.
If you're looking for a way to reduce your plastic waste and improve your kitchen's sustainability, switching to wood cutting boards is a great place to start. Hailey Home offers a variety of beautiful and functional wood cutting boards that are perfect for any kitchen. We also offer customization!
