Eco hacks to transform your kitchen

From the small things that wouldn’t cross your mind such as tea bags – to the bigger items, you use regularly like dish brushes. Munch is right beside you to direct attention towards products that help not harm our planet.

Read more to transform your home, step-by-step into an eco-friendly one. 


How often do you throw out your dish brushes and buy a new one? Monthly? 

Well… those old dish brushes will be with us for over 100 years on the planet, trying to break down but just contaminating our soil. Swap an eco-friendly Wooden Dish Brush. Our 100% plastic-free brush range is completely compostable at the end of its life – how good! 

Also check out our compostable Cup brush and Bottle brush for cleaning the inside of kitchenware that would be hard to reach otherwise.


Sometimes plastic wrap can be so easy to pop over a bowl of leftovers. But, have you seen our effortless Silicone Plastic Food Covers?

They come in a six-pack of different sizes and are air-tight ‘stretch n’ seal’ meaning they seal to fit whatever they’re placed over. Their longevity will amaze – our extra-thick silicone is durable, dishwasher, and freezer safe. 


Another freezer-safe option to help make your kitchen sustainable are our Silicone freezer bags. These are ideal for storing fruits, meats, fish, soups, stock and beverages. You can reuse over and over again!

Need another way to keep your food fresh without using plastic wrap? Our Beeswax wraps will last many uses and are made with all natural ingredients. We have a variety of patterns available:

We also have Beeswax snack bags that are the perfect solution for storing snacks such as popcorn, fruits and nuts. A plastic free snacking solution!

Did you know… there are micro-plastics in many of the disposable tea bags in supermarkets?

Meaning, that composting these contaminates your compost with non-biodegradable plastics. Also, you are steeping plastics in boiling water and then drinking it? These surprising facts led us to create 100% plastic-free Reusable Tea Bags. Make the switch to save the planet and your body. 


How about paper towels? They are such a kitchen staple and you don’t have to stop using them! Just try a new kind… 

Introducing Unpaper Towels. They’re paper-thin towels made of fabric, like our grandmothers used to! Designed for re-use but as absorbent and convenient as paper. They come in a ten pack and can be wrapped around our Towel Holders for easy access – just how we’re used to with regular paper towels! 

Instead of purchasing your usual brand of dishcloths, which generally contain micro-fibres that deteriorate our ocean, make the swap to Munch Eco Dishcloths. 

Each dishcloth replaces 15 rolls of paper towels and, because of their natural fibres, they’re fast-drying and therefore don’t breed bacteria, making them a more hygienic option.

Need a place to put our Natural dish soap? Check out our Bamboo soap dish that helps to drain away moisture and stop your soap from becoming soggy.

Ugh… an old dish scourer/sponge, we all know that horrible smell that comes to mind. 

Regular scourers are a breeding ground for bacteria, this is what leads them to stink! Munch Natural Scourers are made from cellulose and sisal fibres, meaning they’re completely biodegradable in a home compost. They also don’t collect a bad odor like other options, and you can sanitise them easily by chucking them in the dishwasher. Say goodbye to those horrible smells and hello to an eco-friendly scourer. 

How about when you pop out of the office for a quick work lunch. Or if you get Friday night takeaways. Stop taking the single-use forks, spoons, chopsticks, and straws. Paper straws go soggy anyway…

Instead, be an eco-warrior! Invest in our Reusable Travel Cutlery set. It includes a knife, fork, spoon, straw, chopsticks, and comes in the cutest travel wallet. Think about how good it will feel when you ask for no straws and no cutlery, then pull out your funky bamboo cutlery set. You won’t have to rush to finish your drink because the straw won’t go soggy, and you don’t risk the cutlery splintering in your mouth. 


It’s not as hard as it seems. It is as simple as picking up a different item during your next supermarket shop. It’s small changes that won’t affect your everyday life that add up to make the world of difference. 


Munch is right by you each step of the way, empowering families to be more sustainable with their shopping choices. You can do it!
