Celebrating Earth Day revives our ideals for a better world, even if for one day every year. But the decisions we make could have a powerful impact on our home planet for the days to come after this annual celebration. This is why it is important to be aware of our influence on the surroundings – don’t get fooled into buying things you don’t need or want and remember there are always options available that can reduce your negative impact on our planet.
Let’s take a look at some easy, eco-friendly choices for the kitchen – the “heart of the home” is truly where magic happens. This is where we fuel our bodies and minds at the beginning and throughout each day, so it’s important we use eco-friendly items to fuel our hopes for a better tomorrow alongside family and friends.
Replace electrical juicers with ones that don’t use electrical power – this option saves energy and money, allowing you to acknowledge the action you’re taking to give your body the vitamins it needs for the day. Most hand juicers are affordable and much easier to clean then their electric counterparts, easier to store and use in any moment, anywhere. But if you love a good design and quality is on the top of your list, there is a wide variety of juicers that merge important qualities into an eco-friendly kitchen utensil.
Philippe Starck’s Juicy Salif is not only a helpful tool in the kitchen, it combines knowledge, beauty and quality in a stunning design. This mirror-polished citrus juicer is a timeless piece to display in the kitchen – it is more than functional, it adorns the space with a striking elegance that reminds you how good it feels to live healthy and be filled with vitality and creativity.
Eco Friendly Cutting Boards
Replace those plastic cutting boards with natural ones with a healthier, more reliable and environmentally friendly cutting board. Wood, bamboo, recycled paper, flax and cork are all materials that are durable and can be found in modern versions that go beyond function and rely on their modern design to beautify your kitchen. Natural materials are said to be less likely to contaminate the food – provided you wash them properly immediately after use – especially if you use separate cutting boards for different food groups to avoid cross-contamination.
Recycled Glass Dinnerware
Giving glass the chance to live a second life has an impact you can’t begin to imagine. Less glass in the landfills and more in the recycling plants leads to balance we need to give back to our environment – so why not use this year’s Earth Day as your ally in changing the perspective on usual kitchen items? Choose colorful assortments for a playful atmosphere or monochrome ones for an elegant result – just make sure our planet is not confronted with problems because of your decisions. Reclaimed glass can easily be a beautiful way to help our environment gain its past glory.
