When you were growing up, did your parents own any Tupperware? Did you ever get to go to a Tupperware party as a child? I have very distinct memories of going to a few Tupperware parties with my mom in the mid-1980s. I remember seeing all the products on display, and all the women oohing and ahhing over them. I didn’t really understand why, but I knew even back then that Tupperware was super awesome. We had a few pieces in our home, and guess what? My parents still have those pieces! After all, Tupperware is built to last. That’s why I’m so excited to bring you some Tupperware reviews today.
You may be surprised to hear that Tupperware is something that I’m highlighting as “green.” After all, what’s environmentally friendly about plastic? Well I’m glad you asked! Tupperware has a special On the Go line that consists of drinking bottles, containers, tumblers and mugs that are specifically designed to get you out of the habit of using bottle water, Styrofoam coffee cups and other disposable items that are taking up so much space in our landfills. I recently had the chance to try out their FlatOut storage containers from this line. They are fabulous because they can collapse or expand, depending on your storage needs. This makes them useful for that small piece of cake or for that big bowl of chili! Since I received these, I decided to donate a few of my other plastic storage containers since these are so multi-functional. Also, these storage containers do a terrific job of keeping your food fresh, which cuts down on the amount of food waste you might have in your home.
I also got to try out the Quick Chef. This is an alternative to an electric food processor. I actually own a food processor, so at first I didn’t think this would be of much use to me. WRONG! It turns out that this is an ideal product to use when preparing meals while Darah is napping. My food processor wakes her up (believe me, I know from experience). This gadget, on the other hand, is extremely quiet. And honestly, it is just as quick as my electric food processor. I’m amazed at just how fast I can dice onions, carrots and even chicken in this thing. It can also be used to make pesto sauce, which we use often in my home. This product gives the earth a big hug every time you use it by not requiring any electricity. In my book, this is a knock-out invention, and I highly recommend it!
A third innovative product that I was given to try out is the Stuffables Mini Set. These award winning storage containers are pure genius! The lids on these containers are flexible, and can expand as needed. This may not make sense at first, but think about all of the times that you have tried to put away your leftovers, and you were unable to get the lid to shut because the food was sticking out a bit. I hate when that happens! These storage containers remove that problem. This product is earth-friendly because it keeps you from having to take the food out of one container and put it in another one, or even in plastic resealable bags, creating even more mess to have to put in the dishwasher. It also keeps you from tossing out a little bit of food just to make the lid fit. I seriously doubt that I’m the only one guilty of doing that…
Perhaps the best example I can offer about what makes Tupperware earth-friendly is this: a company that makes products that will last for decades without needing to be replaced is being an excellent steward of resources. Think about all of the disposable or low quality plastic containers you have probably used in your home. Now think about Tupperware. If you’ve ever owned any, it is unlikely that you have had to toss it for wearing out! You may even have inherited some Tupperware!
Tupperware gets two thumbs up in my book for helping my house go green. If you are looking for some new food storage containers, I think you should look no further!
Do you own any Tupperware? If so, how has it held up for you?
