The Modern Eco-Tupperware Party, Without the Tupperware

My mother used to sell Tupperware in the 70’s and 80’s.  Heck I -still- have some of her old Tupperware 30 years later, so I can vouch that the stuff can last for decades.  It was truly amazing, though I am unsure if the Tupperware of today is as hearty as it used to be.  Personally I’ve been converting to glass, stoneware, and Pyrex gradually (especially since pyrex lids are BPA-free)

These days there is a lot of talk about chemicals released in plastic when heated and all of the plastic in the ocean, so it’s much less desirable for parties promoting plastic storage these days.  What to do instead?

And excerpt from their website:

A green cleaning party is a fun event where you and your friends learn how to make non-toxic cleaners from common ingredients like vinegar, baking soda and essential oils.

Gather up your jars, they’ll show you how to label and mix your own cleaners.  They even have a kit so you can host your own party and help friends and family rid their homes of toxic chemicals and educate them on environmentally safe choices instead.

A sample recipe from their site:

All-Purpose Cleaner
suggested uses: hard surfaces like countertops and kitchen floors, windows and mirrors

2 cups white distilled vinegar
2 cups water
20-30 or more drops of essential oil (optional)

Tip: Warming in microwave until barely hot will boost cleaning power for tough jobs. Only microwave in a glass container.
