How to Get a Greener Kitchen

Our pals Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry, authors of Squeaky Green: The Method Guide to Detoxing Your Home, share their tips for eco-tizing your digs.

Nuke food in ceramic or glassware only. Some plastic containers radiate an icky petroleum product that can get absorbed into your meal.

Swap your cleaning sprays and countertop wipes for products that are biodegradable, like the ones at mrsmeyers.com. Bonus: They're aromatherapeutic!

Nonstick pan coatings may contain a chemical that can seep into your food. Ditch nonstick cookware and switch to silicone or cast iron (Le Creuset has fun, bright options at williams-sonoma.com).
