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.

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℃.
- Evenly transfers heat throughout food for perfect cooking
- Washable & Hygenic
- A healthier way to cook
- Two Sizes (38cm x 28cm & 30cm x 20cm)
- Eco-friendly & reusable (tested to lasts thousands of uses)
- Reduces your household waste
- Works in oven & microwave
- Suitable for all types of baking & cooking (including pizza, cakes, pastries, meat roasting etc)
How To Care for your Mats
The mats are really easy to care for you simply wash the mat with soap and a soft cloth. Then allow it dry before you use it again.
