Top tips for a sustainable kitchen
Here at Kitchen Kit, we know how tricky it can be to live an eco-friendly lifestyle. Once you have decided on which kitchen is the one for you, and the installation process has been and gone, it’s a good time to consider how your lifestyle impacts the environment and how you can lessen that in your kitchen. Notorious for waste, be that food, plastics or energy, our kitchens are the hubs of our homes and where we use the majority of our products and produce. Here are some tips:
Ditch the plastic
Nowadays supermarkets and suppliers are working hard to create products that have less and less plastic. It may take a little more time to research exactly what you want, but you can usually find what you need without the plastic. It’s a great way to reduce your impact on the environment.
Energy efficient appliance
It goes without saying that our appliances in the kitchen send our energy bills and usage sky high. By opting for energy efficient alternatives, we are doing right by the planet and our finances at the same time. Swapping for energy efficient light bulbs, rechargeable batteries, solar panels and low wattage alternatives will literally do the world of good!
Buy local ingredients
Whizzing around the supermarket for a quick shop is something we all do. When work is busy and the kids have birthdays and packed lunches to consider, shopping for local ingredients can be a time-consuming task that we just don’t have the time for. But by spending a little longer sourcing local produce, we are not only doing right by our local farmers, fishmongers, and growers, but by the planet as a whole.
Keep a compost heap for food waste
Composting food waste is something the whole family can get involved with. Instead of throwing it in the bin, to go to landfill, we can reuse this nutrient rich collection in our own gardens, and feed it back to the earth where it belongs. This is the natural life cycle of unprocessed foods, and it is one that is great for the environment.
By choosing an eco-friendly pathway when sourcing your dream sustainable kitchen, you are choosing the planet too. Here at Kitchen Kit we are proud to promote a sustainable way to achieve your kitchen goals, thanks to the incredible work of Nobilia and Ballerina. Get in touch today to discuss your options!
