Eco-friendly lifestyles don't have to be all or nothing. And many thanksgivers will choose to prepare poultry this holiday; they will, nonetheless, still hope to do so in a way that is relatively healthful to their families and the environment. Yet trussing turkey legs with twine and basting cooking juices with cheesecloth can present challenges— as products for these preparations are often laden with toxins and dyes that seep into food. Our good friends at If You Care have created thoughtful alternatives to these problematic standards.
In addition to the famed recycled aluminum featured here a few years back, If You Care has more recently added both twine and cheesecloth to their product line. Both the twine and cheesecloth are made of 100% unbleached, chemical free cotton. The products are naturally biodegradable and even the dye used on the packaging is vegetable-based and toxin-free.
Now you can have your turkey and eat it too.
