Preserve Products

Last summer I had a chance to review the Preserve toothbrush from Preserve Products. I recently had a chance to try out the colander from their kitchen line.

Like all of their products the colander is made out of 100% recycled plastic, is recyclable where #5 plastics are accepted, BPA-free, made in the USA, and dishwasher-safe - they've got it all covered!

I like this colander much better than the one I had been using. It is sturdy, strong, durable, quick to drain, and easy to clean. The one I had before was a pain to get clean (Joe and I both hated cleaning that one; it seemed like food bits were always getting stuck in the tiny holes) this one has a much better design and flow. The sides are easy grip and it pours out smoothly. Besides the basic white color it comes in three other bright colors - Berry Blue, Apple Green, and Ripe Tomato.

Preserve Products really stands by their motto of Nothing Wasted. Everything Gained. Their products are made from recycled #5 plastics via the Gimme 5 Program. #5 plastics are used in yogurt cups, tubs, and food storage containers; so while #5 plastics are widely used in products sold, most communities don't recycle #5 plastics. That's where the Gimme 5 Program, in partnership with Organic Valley and Stoneyfield, comes in. You can drop off #5 plastics in select Whole Foods Market locations or you can mail them directly to Preserve.

You can find these stylish, high-quality, eco-friendly products in the US and Canada in Target, Trader Joe's, and Whole Foods Market; or you can buy directly from their online store. What I like best is how affordable their products are.

When Joe gets back from this deployment and we get settled in to our new base I'm getting some new kitchenware!
