So what’s so awesome about baking with silicone? Some of us on the Reuseit team are longtime bakers and we were wondering if silicone bakeware could turn us away from our favorite heavy, metal bakeware we so dearly loved. After doing some research, we were convinced that silicone WAS the best option for the environment. We hope this post will also make you “silicone believers” too. But first we’d like to sing our praises of silicone. Highly durable, silicone doesn’t contain the estrogen-like chemicals found in plastic making it the safest option on the market. According to Eco LunchBox™, silicone resists oxidative deterioration (normal aging) for decades. Studies have actually shown that silicone thrives on outside elements, including exposure to extreme heat or cold, salt spray, U-V radiation and more.

Holiday gift giving is big business in the U.S. and requires tons of paper gift wrap annually. According to earth911.com, nearly 50 percent of the country's total paper consumption per year is wrapping paper. That amounts to approximately 42 million tons of waste paper trashed annually. And the number is growing! Not only is gift wrap typically a one use commodity, it is often non-recyclable due to dyes, lamination and metallic or plastic additives. This adds up to rampant consumption of trees as well as considerable greenhouse gas emissions from the paper-making process.
