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.

The small version goes fo $9.99 on Amazon (in three nifty colors)--perfect for a fruit snack. The large version is $13.99 and can handle a family-sized pasta meal.
