    Oxo Silicone Baking Cups

    There are no lots of reusable silicone baking cups out there, but these ones from OXO boast some really smart features: tabs to easily remove them from the pan, plus a fill line to ensure that your cakes turn out an even height. You can use them in muffin tins, but they’re sturdy enough that you can line them up on a baking sheet if you need an extra muffin tin in a pinch.

    Bamboozle Dinnerware

    Bamboozle’s products are—you guessed it—made from bamboo, known for its sustainability as well as its durability (it’s scratch and stain resistant). Their dishwasher-safe tabletop collection combines that eco-friendliness with modern design. We especially like the wavy-edged dinnerware (shown here in graphite) as a great alternative to melamine for outdoor or casual dining.

    If You Care Nonstick Parchment Roasting Bags

    Roasting bags are a great way to use your oven for hands-off steam-roasting, which keeps foods moist and tender. But most roasting bags on the market are made of plastic, and, be honest, how good do you feel about cooking your food in plastic? If You Care’s roasting bags are an eco-friendly alternative, made from biodegradable parchment. The medium bags are perfect for vegetables and individual cuts of meat or poultry, and we absolutely love them as an easy shortcut for fish en papillote.
