If you are interested in having a “green Kitchen, then here are some simple and very easy tips that you can do.
It has been said time and time again that we should save water, and doing this is not that difficult a thing to do as all you have to do is to turn the water supply off when you are not using it. If you are washing the dishes; gathering the dinnerware, utensils, glassware, etc.; storing the kitchen items away; or even chatting with your friends, be sure that the water supply is turned off so as not to waste water. Sadly, there are a lot of people who do not save water when they are washing the dishes. Instead of turning the water supply off when they are washing the dishes, they leave it running the whole time. If you know someone who does this, tell them of the importance of water conservation.
Another way to have a “green kitchen” is to know what recycling is. For this reason, it is important that you segregate your garbage properly into wet and dry garbage.
The wet garbage is the organic garbage such as leftover vegetables and fruits. These are basically anything that came from plants and animals and are biodegradable. You should store them in an appropriate container and mark the container with a sign saying “wet garbage” so the garbage collector will know what its contents are and send it to the appropriate place in their disposal plant.
On the other hand, the dry garbage are papers and cardboard boxes, glasses and bottles, rubbers and plastics and metals, etc. You should also segregate them accordingly such as papers with papers and plastics with plastics for easy and proper disposal when the garbage collector comes. These items will be recycled by the recycling plants into materials.
Purchase Kitchen Items Wisely
Instead of making use of plastic wraps when storing food products inside your refrigerator or freezer, why not purchase items that will last? You can make use of glass food containers instead. The same can also be done when it comes to choosing and purchasing cookware as well as kitchen utensils. Instead of purchasing Teflon or other non-stick surface cookware which has a shorter lifespan, why not make use of cast iron cookware or even stainless steel ones? As for kitchen utensils and appliances, do not choose cheap ones. Go for the kitchen utensils and appliances that have better quality. They may be more expensive, but they will not break easily, thus, saving you some money and allowing you to help the environment at the same time. Remember, cheap kitchen utensils and appliances will break and rot easily.
Lastly, you should take care of your kitchen appliances properly. This involves following the instruction manual of the manufacturer before using them and using them appropriately. This also involves turning them of when not in use and unplugging them from the wall socket. This should also involve storing the properly.
Plan, Plan, Plan
Like they say, waste not, want not. To save some money, be sure to plan your menus in advance and list down all the ingredients you will be needing for the whole week. This way, you will not waste precious ingredients and money, and you will also not waste precious time and effort. With just one trip to the grocery store, you can save on fuel.
