The eco-friendly kitchen begins with eating fresh, healthy food and using BPA-free kitchenware, but it doesn’t end there. The kitchen is the heart of the home and is one of the most important areas to think about going green and making a difference. Think about all the products you use - look for non-toxic dinnerware, eco-friendly sustainable serving pieces, recycled rather than virgin glassware and dodge chemicals by avoiding teflon and using safe, high quality BPA-free kitchenware. Choose products that stand the test of time and won’t have to be thrown away. Though a bit of an investment, high performance stainless steel cookware will last for generations. Of great importance is also the cleaning products you use on your green kitchen products. Petrochemical-based cleaners are bad for you and the environment! Choose natural household cleaning products that are non-toxic, biodegradable and plant-based.
