Sharing a photo inside Kim and Kanye West's huge walk-in fridge on Instagram, The Home Edit team wrote: "Transitioning @kimkardashian's walk-in fridge to be plastic-free was such a fun challenge! To avoid using plastic we implemented steel crates, glass and bamboo food storage, beeswax bags, and steel turntables for jars and condiments."
