Kitchen Essentials for Moms

Image placeholder title

Time for another installment of kitchen essentials. The Preserve Colanderis a must-have tool for moms. Sturdy and stylish, this item is ideal for draining pasta (a staple of 90% of toddler's diets) as well as perfect for rinsing fresh fruit. Available in two sizes, you'll soon be using this green meal prep tool on a daily basis.

Function is great, but there's more. We love how eco-smart Preserve is. Sure you can buy a cheaper colander (and I underscore the term cheaper), but you won't likely find one that is trying to turn the manufacturing process into an eco-friendly system. Preserve plastic products are made from #5 polypropylene plastic collected from individuals via the Gimme 5 program and from companies like Stonyfield Farm. They take the recycling plastic containers, sort it, clean it, test it, recycle it, and turn it into new Preserve products.
