3 Ways to Make Your Kitchen More Environmentally Friendly, Marlboro, New Jersey

People are becoming increasingly concerned about the ever-increasing costs of energy and the impact humans have on the environment. So, why not consider kitchen remodeling that reduces your carbon footprint? This guide will explain easy ways to make your kitchen more ecological so you can breathe a little easier in your space.

Eco-Friendly Tips for Kitchen Remodeling

1. Upgrade to Bamboo Flooring

Because bamboo is considered grass, it needs to be harvested to keep the plant stable. Bamboo can also replace lost shoots every three to five years, creating an incredibly sustainable flooring option. To top it off, bamboo floors are beautiful and durable, making your kitchen stand out.

2. Install Efficient Appliances

One of the easiest ways to save on the long-term cost of your kitchen remodeling job is to install energy-efficient appliances that carry the ENERGY STAR® label. These appliances are certified to use less power than similar appliances, making it easier and less expensive to keep your kitchen clean and functional.

3. Grow Your Own Herbs 

remodelingStore-bought herbs might seem convenient, but have you ever thought of all the fuel, energy, and packaging that was used to transport them to your home? To save power and protect the environment, consider creating an herb garden in your kitchen. Ask your remodeling contractor to create a deeper ledge on your windowsill where you can put your plants.
