As a natural mama, I am very conscious of buying only safe products that are also eco-friendly. I love the expanding use of silicone in kitchen products that serves both functions. Your favorite bonus part will be that it’s very easy to clean!
I’ve rounded up the ones that are in constant use in my kitchen, along with my new favorites!

Silicone Muffin Cups – I’ve had these for years and they are full of endless uses!

Stainless Steel Water Bottle – I am super picky about my water bottles – I’ve been carrying mine for 20+ years. I like to stay hydrated, reduce waste, and be confident I am using safe products. I recently got this stylish rose gold bottle that I absolutely adore! The best part – it comes complete with 2 tops – one with a soft straw and the other is a twist cap!
Silicone Storage Bags – single-use plastic bags no more! Again, all the great features of silicone can be used to store meat, fruits, veggies, etc in your lunch or freezer! And it goes right to from the freezer to steam/heat up to your plate.
