When it comes to kitchen prep, having planet-friendly ingredients and sustainable kitchen tools is top of mind. But most of us forget to think about the water waste we'll be accumulating during prep, too.

Every person uses an average of 80 to 100 gallons of water per day. Some of that can be attributed to showering and doing laundry. But we hardly ever think about the continuous stream of water wasting away down the drain as we're rinsing fruit and veggies before eating them.

Luckily, there's a simple solution. The Ekobo Bamboo Mixing Bowl and Colander Set—available in Brightly's October Product Drop until October 10th—can help conserve all of that extra water. This set simplifies the task of rinsing fruits and vegetables by collecting and recycling water for additional uses, such as watering your household plants or cleaning.

The great thing about this set is that it's not just perfect for conserving water. The easy-to-grip handle doubles as a spout for pouring mixed ingredients, and the bowl doubles as a serving bowl so you can bring it straight from the kitchen to your dining room table. Talk about multi-purpose.

Both the mixing bowl and colander are made with FSC-certified bamboo fiber, making it a much more eco-friendly pick than other options you'll find in stores. So if you're in the market for a new kitchen tool that can better the planet, keep this Ekobo set in mind.
