As more and more people start to go green, it’s hard not to start thinking about doing it yourself. The kitchen itself is probably a room we use the most and it can be the most expensive as well. With our electricity and gas prices sky rocketing this Winter, here are a few tips on how you can reduce those energy bills and turn your kitchen into an eco-friendly space!
Taps are something somebody usually leaves on for longer than they need to be. One of those times is when we’re brushing our teeth or washing pots and pans in the sink and we leave them to do 10 other things at once. Try installing a faucet that only turns on and off with just a touch or a hand movement. This way you aren’t wasting more water than you need to.
Cork is considered to be one of the greenest flooring and countertop options of the 21st century. It’s major property being that it can be renewed and doesn’t harm any trees in the making. Parts of the cork can also be recycled. It’s suitable for flooring as it is soft and doesn’t wear out, making it easier to stand on your feet for longer periods of time.
Energy Saving Dishwashers
If you’re looking to replace your old dishwasher, consider one that is Energy Star Rated therefor using less electricity in your home. Maybe even look for one that conserves water as it does energy, providing you with more eco power and utility savings.
