SustainableQATAR’s Weekly Challenge 40~ Healthy Kitchens

Discuss here!
Start a discussion

SustainableQATAR’s 52 weekly challenges – that is one challenge per week for a whole year themed by month – are Qatar-specific and Qatar-relevant opportunities for all residents to take actions in personal life, work and within our communities.

In July we discussed healthy food and challenged everyone to eat cancer-fighting superfoods and brain-healthy diets. Are you keeping up with these challenges? Good! Next step is to make sure we retain all the goodness in the food. Did you know that how and where we prepare our food matters as much to our health as the food itself? What does that mean? Cookware, utensils, cleaners – everything our food comes in contact with matters.

In our monthly blog Healthy Homes, we introduce the concept of a healthy home to create a toxin-free environment at home to be safe from nasty chemicals.

Our kitchens are particularly critical. A lot of things happen in the kitchen, not just food preparation. Life happens in there! Cooking. Eating. Social life. Therefore, it is that much more important to keep the kitchen healthy and clean of hidden toxins.

This week’s challenge is all about the kitchen – from pots and pans to cleaning solutions, and pest control to food containers. We will uncover some common and not-so-common places and sources of hidden toxins and how best to avoid exposure.

See Challenge #40 ~ Healthy Kitchens.

The goal of SustainableQATAR’s 52 Weekly Challenges is to inspire and provide easy actions we can take every day to live more sustainably. Thank you for joining us.
