Did you know your kitchen can be a big energy waster? An eco-friendly kitchen not only helps protect the environment, but saves you money and conserves energy. Explore how to be more environmentally conscious with the help of BLANCO’s innovative products and a few simple alterations to your kitchen routine.
Change Your Flow
Work towards saving the environment, and money on your water bill, by replacing your standard 2.2 gpm (gallons per minute) faucet with one of BLANCO’s water-saving faucets with a 1.5 gpm rate. This seemingly small but efficient change can conserve up to 30% more water than when using a standard faucet.
Composting made easy
Even your everyday food scraps have an impact on our environment. The Environmental Protection Agency states that compost can enhance water retention in soils, and even promote a higher yield of agricultural crops. Organic products from fruit and vegetable peels to egg shells and coffee grounds can be repurposed to enrich soil. Collect organic waste out of sight beneath the counter with our award-winning BLANCO SOLON™ Compost System. Indoor compost is not only simple, but is ready to use in two to five weeks as a natural fertilizer in your garden or outdoor area.
Don’t overfill your kettle!
Most people use double the amount of water than what they need to boil water. Did you know boiling more water uses more electricity? Try using a cup to measure out exactly what you need, adding a little extra to allow for evaporation.
Say good-bye to chemical cleaners
Clean your home without unpleasant chemical cleaners. Using environmentally safe cleaning products are non-toxic and do not have a negative impact the environment or your health. Most eco-friendly cleaning products are biodegradable, phosphate and chlorine free and are created by using materials from plants. Protect the environment by switching to cleaning products with organic ingredients.
