Kitchen coveralls.

Waste is built into kitchen tools and supplies on so many levels, it can be hard to notice. Take, for example, elastic, which is non-renewable and eventually loses its stretch, meaning you have to toss it. Opt instead for these drawstring cloth dish covers, made of 100% organic cotton, perfect for rising bread, covering ingredients while you prep, or keeping food clean when you take it outdoors. They’re microwave-safe (just dampen with water beforehand) and machine-washable, so they’ll last for ages.
