5 Ways To Go Green In Your Kitchen

Everywhere you go, you see information to tell you how to be more eco-friendly and green in your life, and when the planet is at stake, it’s easy to see why. As a population, we need to be doing a lot more than we already are for the world, and that can start with the smallest steps – including changing things up in the kitchen so that we are doing our part.

The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the house, which makes it the perfect place to start when trying to makeover the home to be more eco-friendly. Taking the right steps toward a greener kitchen is important, especially if you want to give something back and do your bit for the world. Below, you’ll find 5 ways to make your kitchen more eco-friendly this year:

  1. Keep It Clean. The kitchen is one of the most bacteria-filled areas of the home, from food prep splashes and germs, to the garbage can and disposal. It’s important that you are keeping everything clean to prevent illness. However, chemicals in the sprays aren’t good for you to breathe in or cook near all the time. Products at Better Life can change the way that you keep your kitchen clean. The eco-friendly product approach can lessen the impact you’re having on the environment while keeping a sparkly kitchen!
  2. Conserve Water. Do you wash the dishes while running the water in the kitchen? And how many dishwasher loads are you doing on an almost empty dishwasher? Either way, you need to start thinking before you do. Fill the sink before you wash and don’t’ do a dishwasher load on a less than full machine. Saving energy while saving water is going to do your part in saving the world.
  3. Recyclable Reductions. You may be adept at recycling your product packaging, but it’s far more friendly to your plastic use to stop buying as much. If you currently buy a lot of plastic water bottles, invest in a water pitcher for the refrigerator and keep it filled. Use dishcloths and napkins that you can wash, instead of paper cups and plastics that you’ll throw away. Use glass storage instead of tupperware so that you’re investing well. There are so many things that you can do to change up your recyclable options.
  4. Food Repurpose. The amount of food wasted each year doesn’t bear thinking about in a world where people are starving, so start repurposing your leftovers by investing a little time and energy in composting. You can use your leftovers wisely without wastage, and you free up the space in the garbage.
  5. Cooking. When you are a busy professional, it can be tempting to only buy pre-packaged and processed foods. Instead, learn to make it yourself. You’re only using fresh ingredients, and shopping locally can ensure that you are using less packaging with your ingredients.

Your kitchen has so much potential to go greener; let it happen, naturally!
