The kitchen and the huge amount of time we spend in there is surely part of our way of consuming resources and living our life.
The cooking, eating, food processing and storing is responsible for a large part of our carbon footprint on the worlda??s existence and kitchens are the places where we can make a difference.
The dishwasher is an invention that every woman is thankful for but choosing a class A + of energy one will make sure you consume less water and the time of dishwashing is reduced as is the energy consumption.
Using second hand kitchen gear, like kitchen appliances, kitchen furniture and dishes can save you a lot of cash. It may not be the latest trend but with the recession and all a garage sale can help you replace your china bowls or kitchen table.
Second hand appliances shops might as well get you a coffee machine on a discount price, a stove that had its oven door repaired, a fridge that was abandoned by its previous owner for no particular reason or a sink that simply was no longer in trend.
Copper is lighter than iron and copper enamel pots are surely more enduring. Copper is the new vintage touch in the kitchen, it is easy to clean and very enduring even if continually used.
Using stainless steel items from pots and pans to kitchen appliances surfaces changes the perspective on the maintenance. The stainless steel might be slightly expensive but lasts longer so you wona??t have to replace the items very often.
Clay dishes are perfect for oven and microwave. They are a lot sturdier than plastic and a lot more enduring. Cooking in them is the new cooking trend and the food resulted is mighty delicious.
Bamboo is surely the new trend as kitchen wood objects go. It is true that it is also more expensive but it is a lot sturdier than soft wood, stains less or harder and can be reused for many years.
The recycled and recyclable materials are a sure asset for a kitchen that wants to be green. Use kitchen gear that can be recycled and avoid plastic. Use cups and glasses made of recycled glass and recycle them when they break.
Keep in mind that with a bit of imagination you can have a greener but also a trendy looking kitchen.

Ministry of Sound Australia recently released its newest chillout collection featuring various music tracks, from "laidback acoustic tunes to hip future-disco beats". We consider that the advertising campaign behind the launch of Chillout Sessions XII is so cute and creative, that we just had to share it on Freshome. Designed by Andrew van der Westhuyzen, the prints meant to promote the disc are said to be a tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright and Neutra and their ways of life as influenced by the buildings they lived in. According to the initiators of this advertising campaign, "Chillout Sessions XII takes us to a fusion of time periods somewhere between the 50s and the 80s in the filtered light of California." There is also a movie that accompanies these prints and we have to say we were pleasantly amused how the characters were constructed. Have a look!-via Collider
