Spring is here and so is Earth Month. Earth Day is April 22 but why not celebrate Mother Earth all month long? BKLYN Larder is here to showcase some easy ways you can begin a sustainable lifestyle. We are committed to featuring locally sourced, small batch, and ethically made foods and products from brands and companies that prioritize environmental wellness. Let us start you on a new path of living deliciously well!
The first thing you can do to help the environment is to end your reliance on single use plastic for food storage. Try using Bee’s Wrap, renowned for their reusable food storage solutions. Their products are made with certified organic cotton that’s coated with sustainably sourced beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. The result? An easy, reusable, all-natural way to store food.
BKLYN Larder is also hosting a wonderful Virtual Cheese Tasting with Bee’s Wrap on Earth Day, April 22 at 7PM EST. Vermont-based cheese and accompaniments will be enjoyed as we learn about the wonders of sustainable food storage. Reserve your spot now! Last day to register is April 19th.
As plastic bags become a thing of the past, let us introduce you to Baggu. They make every bag you need for your daily routine. Whether it’s shopping for groceries, perusing a flea market, or gifting a bottle of wine, Baggu has a bag for every occassion. They are designed from sustainable materials and are created to have long, useful lives. And did we mention they were cute and fashionable as well?
The most delicious way to begin a sustainable lifestyle is to eat small and local. This doesn’t mean sacrificing big flavor. Some of our favorite cheesemakers and creameries are passionate about sourcing their milk from local farms. Milton Creamery in Iowa is a prime example. Their milk comes from farms within 30 miles of their facility. The small herds at these farms are milked and managed by familes that sustain their local economies. Their cows are healthy, happy, and make the tastiest milk. Pick up a Prairie Breeze Cheddar from BKLYN Larder and taste the difference of small batch, ethically made cheese. Knowing more about where your food comes from even makes it taste better.
Think about what you’re buying and what you’re eating. Your purchasing dollars have power. Take time to edcuate yourself on brands that prioritize the environment. All it takes is one easy step to begin your new sustainable lifestyle!
