It seems like I’m always preaching about “living green” on one of my blogs – if it’s not here, it’s on Self Help Daily or Out of Bounds. We should all pay more attention to the little things we do and buy, because we all know the little things add up.
Someone was thoughtful enough to e-mail me the link to a great article on Organicasm called Eco-Kitchens: 100 Big and Little Ways to Make Your Kitchen More Earth-Friendly. It’s a superb read and I promise you there’ll be numerous tips and ideas you hadn’t yet thought of.
Below are just a few of my favorites:
Get a Solar Cooker
Keep appliances separate: Keep your cooling refrigerator away from your heating oven, for example.
Instead of a side-by-side model, choose a top and bottom refrigerator, which lets less cold air escape.
Buy towels, rugs, table runners and more made of bamboo, and you’ll be using a renewable resource.
Skip air fresheners: Instead of using air fresheners, boil cinnamon, cloves, or other great-smelling herbs.
These are just a few, please check out the full list by visiting Eco-Kitchens: 100 Big and Little Ways to Make Your Kitchen More Earth-Friendly. Great stuff!
