Eco-friendly Kitchen

Go green and become an environmentally responsible household. Eco-friendly kitchens begin with eating organically homegrown produce. Create a culture of environmental responsibility beginning with your kitchen. 


The food you carry in to your home is just as important as the appliances you prepare your meals with, so whenever possible grow your own food. 

Eco-friendly kitchens begin with eating organically homegrown produce. Create a culture of environmental responsibility beginning with your kitchen. Organic vegetables are not hard to grow. Hearty plants such as okra, sweet potatoes and pole beans grow rapidly. 

Lettuce is also simple to plant and goes from seed to plate within a few short weeks. Consider the amount of household waste produced by store bought produce vs. homegrown. 

Store bought produce uses containers and packaging to store produce while homegrown produce uses none. Composting is also a great way to reduce carbon footprints. Growing your own food saves fuel and adds in recycling efforts. Composting uses organic material that can be used as a soil amendment to grow more produce that is organic. The cycle continues.
