Congratulations on choosing the design of the green kitchen! So, you are one of those who understands that cooking is not only used for cooking, but also generates about 15% of the world’s greenhouse gases. There’s a lot to do for your green kitchen. First, you need to review all the chemical liquids for dishwashers, washing products for floors and surfaces, washing powders and other cleaning products that you are currently using.
Not only can they cause illness, but they are also very harmful to the environment! Buy a natural biodegradable detergent, try herb detergent, and if you have time, you can certainly cook it yourself using vinegar and baking soda. They are a fantastic combination and give you a high-quality universal cleaner!
Another idea for green kitchen design is to find kitchen accessories, cladding, flooring and furniture that have already been used. Even if you are going to buy new kitchen goods, you can mix some of their old cabinets and drawers to save money and recycle. You can choose green counters made from recycled paper, cans of yogurt, bamboo, cork floor, etc. – but first explore the materials!
Don’t forget to buy durable goods that will last you a long time. Many stores allow you to try the product before you buy, so take advantage. Use on these samples sharp heavy objects (except food, of course!) – so you can feel the hardness, resistance to scratches and other properties of the material.
It’s also important to make sure your refrigerator is energy efficient, if it’s over 10 years old, it’s probably time to replace it. You should also know more about new energy alternatives such as solar or wind power, if possible, you can now have a solar refrigerator – ask your energy supplier. Don’t forget to bring a reusable grocery bag to the supermarket. Use water wisely, close the taps when they are not in use. The same goes for lighting. Give up any type of plastic and always buy organic or biodynamic products produced within environmentally sustainable agriculture.
It is always important to buy devices that are packed as little as possible. Did you know that most of the items in the nearest department store have in the package up to 10 dollars? So you need to stay away from all beautifully packaged things and choose a packaging suitable for recycling. Other great deals are to find suitable packaging and foil alternatives, buy fresh produce if possible and avoid packaged ready meals such as plague! These are just a few things you can do for your green kitchen.
