FAQs

What can I use instead of plastic storage containers?

There are many different options you can use in your home to replace plastic storage containers. Here are a few types that we recommend to use for plastic free food storage:



If you’re wondering why you would want to invest and spend the money to get plastic food storage out of your kitchen, the answer is simple — sustainability. Plastic can really hurt the environment and using more eco-friendly food storage (that can be used again and again) makes a positive impact on the planet. You’ll feel good knowing your everyday routines are making a difference — plus, your food won’t absorb any chemicals or BPA which can happen when you’re using plastic food storage bins.


Is glass or plastic better for food storage?

Glass hands down. Glass food storage containers are far better than plastic storage bins for food. Here’s what we love about glass food storage:


  • Glass doesn’t absorb food smells and germs like plastic does
  • You can put hot leftovers in glass without having to wait for them to cool down
  • They’re clear — you can easily see what’s inside without labels or fumbling around in the fridge
  • They’re durable and last wash after wash in the dishwasher
  • You can easily purchase new glass food storage containers or find used ones at a thrift store

If you’re looking to swap your plastic containers for glass containers, take a look at all of ourLe Parfait plastic free food storage or shop all of the best plastic free food storage items available on Grove Collaborative.

How do you label fabric storage bins?

Fabric storage bins are amazing for your home. They can be used for anything from toy storage bins, to stackable storage bins for supplies, and even under bed storage bins for clothes or shoes. Their multiple uses make them a necessity to have, but if you find yourself mixing up your bins and wanting to be able to label them instead of always looking in the top of each to see what’s inside, you’re not alone.


Here are some easy ways to label your fabric storage bins to make organizing easy breezy:


  • Iron-on patches work great with fabric storage bins
  • Laminate a paper label with writing on it and then use packing tape to tape it onto your storage bins
  • Create a paper label and punch a hole in the top, then use a string to connect it to your fabric storage bins (this one only works if it’s the type of bin that features cut-out handles)
