How to create an eco-friendly kitchen

It is difficult to pay attention to the news these days without hearing about the danger posed by global climate change. Although this is certainly an issue that needs to be solved on a massive scale, the truth is that there are plenty of ways you can help the environment in your everyday life.

This blog post will focus on several ways you can update your kitchen to be eco-friendly, as well as save you money in the long term. The best part of making these changes is that they won't break the bank or cause you to dramatically alter your daily routines.

Here are a few easy tips for designing a green kitchen:

  • Buy window coverings: To help keep the air inside your home from leaking out – reducing your dependence on your heating and cooling system – custom window coverings such as drapes or tinting are a great choice.
  • Ditch the paper products: One of the easiest ways to create a greener kitchen is to cut down on the amount of paper products that you use. Instead of using paper towels to clean up spills and other messes, for example, use a dishrag or towel that you can wash and reuse. Eliminating this kind of unnecessary waste will go a long way!
  • Invest in LED lights: For your light fixtures, have the ones you currently own replaced with LED or CFL bulbs. These kinds of lights consume much less energy and electricity, which will do wonders for the environment. It will also be greatly beneficial to your bank account, as your monthly utility bills will noticeably decrease.
