Switching to Reusable Baking Mats from Poppy Bee

Sometimes I feel like I sound like a broken record but working towards a more sustainable lifestyle is definitely a journey, not a destination. It takes time to research more sustainable alternatives.

It can cost money to buy suitable replacements. Sometimes we just don’t have the time to focus on changing our lifestyles as everyday life gets in the way.

I am a firm believer in making little switches here and there.

“The people who make the biggest difference are the ones who do the little things consistently.”

Reusable Silicone Baking Mats

One simple switch I have made recently is to *reusable silicone baking mats from Poppy Bee. I already had their *reusable stainless steel straws which are great and I’d also recommend so I knew their baking mats would also be good.

There are 2 mats of different sizes in each pack. These reusable mats make an excellent alternative to baking paper and foil.

They are made from FDA approved and LFGB certified food-grade silicone. The silicone is reinforced with inner fibreglass and completely BPA free.

As a bonus, they are also non-stick so you don’t need to grease the mat for baking which means fewer calories! These mats are also dishwater safe and can be used at a temperature from 40℃ to 250℃.

  1. Ahh these look fab! I’m always looking at ways to reduce waste. We already use waxed sandwich wraps and waxed cloth covers but I was stumped for baking paper. Thanks for telling us about them.

  2. These look really good, I have used something similar in the past, but they were so thin and poor quality that they didnt last long. These one look like they have been made to last, I would love to try them out

  3. I’d love to use these and get away from using my rusty old metal baking trays which I have to faff around lining with greaseproof paper

  4. Because they’re an alternative to aluminium foil. I read a book by Louis Blank about Alzheimer’s (which killed my grandmother and great-aunt) and one of the things he said in it is that aluminium is a big ingredient in beta-amyloid plaques (the rubbish that clogs up brain circuits in Alzheimer’s sufferers), so he recommended limiting the amount that can get into the body. I’ve already switched to aluminium-free antiperspirant, so getting rid of aluminium foil as well would be even better.

  5. I love to try anything that makes a little difference to help save the planet and I hate washing up metal baking trays so these would be perfect! 🙂

  6. I would love to give these to my sister in law. I’m teaching her how to bake so my nice can help her in the kitchen. My niece loves baking but her Mum doesn’t know how.

  7. I would love to win because I like to bake, especially around the Christmas season and I would rather use these than baking paper! I keep meaning to get them but I never get round to it!

  8. Just stumbled across your page whilst I was trying to find reusable pens (on my way to buy a fountain pen from Pen Heaven now…) It’s fantastic and I have tonight blocked out to read it ALL! So glad I’ve found you!

    1. Hi Sally, thanks for stopping by. I love my pen from Pen Heaven. So glad I made the switch from disposables.

      Really glad you’ve found my blog helpful that’s made my night. 🙂

  9. PS, I’d love to win these as we’re really trying hard to stop creating waste in our house. We go through so much foil and greaseproof paper so these are a great idea.

  10. I would love to win these mats! Mainly for baking, it would massively cut down on my baking paper usage, but the fact you can use it for general cooking as well is such a bonus!

  11. Because these would be so handy. I love baking but its made difficult by the numerous dislocations and subluxes my body suffers every day as a result of Ehlers Danlos. This was something the occupational therapist suggested might be a good idea to help me not lose another hobby to my condition. Not only that but it would be a lot cleaner than flouring the side down

  12. I feel very guilty about the amount of silicone baking paper I use, but really just greasing baking sheets doesn’t do a reliable job.

  13. There’s nothing worse than having to wash up baking trays with baked on food stuck to them. I like the fact that these sheets can avoid this without the waste of the less eco friendly alternatives.

  14. I’m actively trying to reduce my amount of waste and use more reusable products that are more eco friendly. This would be an amazing way for me to do so as I’m always baking

  15. I’m all for reducing waste and that includes greaseproof paper during baking, but I don’t like to place things directly on the tray because I’m iffy about what chemicals are in the coating. These mats would be perfect!

  16. Maria Jane Knight (@mariajkknight)

    We would love to use these when cooking our homemade sausage rolls…they go down a storm on the evening of Christmas day when the buffet comes out.

  17. Trying to be “Green” as much as possible so winning this giveaway would be amazing, I’ve recently purchased beeswax instead of food bags and clingfilm and don’t buy pre packaged fruit and vegetables among lots of other changes. Trying to do my bit for the planet!

  18. I absolutely love to bake but have having things stick! I’d love to be able to use an eco friendly alternative to tons of greaseproof paper but that still allows my bakes to come off perfectly!

  19. I love baking with my son but it does use a lot of baking paper which I am hoping to cut down on to be more eco thoughtful.

I'd love to know what you think...
