There are some design ideas for ecology kitchenware that range from those that recycle food waste to green products, which do not add expenses to your home upgrading project. The long-term savings made from ecology kitchenware and other energy efficient kitchen materials will end up reducing your carbon footprint for many years to come.
Some of the high-impact kitchen design ideas that are environmentally and eco-friendly include:
Kitchen Recycling Center
This is comprised of a set of kitchen bins, which allow the easy separation of rubbish: food, paper, plastics, bottles, etc.
Waste Disposal machines
These machines are ideal in the reduction to small pieces of food waste. The resulting compost could be used on your kitchen garden if you have one.
As you make considerations for which dishwasher, refrigerator or washing machine to purchase for the project of remodeling your kitchen, make sure you check the energy rating of each appliance.
Induction cooking incorporates the use of electricity whereby a magnetic field is produced, and it reacts with the ferrous content in cast iron, enameled and stainless steel cookware. As the molecules are excited, heat is produced. This results in the food and cookware getting hot whereas the cooker or stovetop does not. Since there is less heat wasted, the food heats at a faster rate thus saving not only energy but time as well. Compared to electric radiant and gas that have the energy efficiency of about 50-60%, induction cooking has an impressive energy efficiency of about 90%.
Washing Machines and Dishwashers
Always ensure that your washing machine or dishwasher uses a full load. When purchasing a new machine to ensure that the model is water efficient.
Kitchen Counter-tops made from stained concrete
The design of your kitchen should be comprised of durable and water-resistant materials for splash-backs and countertops. Stained concrete utilizes natural pigments that are non-toxic rather than stains that have been applied on the surface.
Eco-Friendly Flooring of the Kitchen
Products that have been manufactured from forests that are renewable provide you with an affordable, beautiful and durable floor as well as a choice that is environmentally responsible. Cork, eucalyptus, and bamboo take half the time it takes for hardwoods to mature into market size.
