Going green in the kitchen
1. Go green in the kitchen by choosing appliances that are designed to last
When purchasing appliances and utensils choose quality over quantity to ensure that you don’t have to keep replacing them. Opt for energy efficient rated appliances that have specifically been designed to minimize your energy consumption, and that will in turn reduce your monthly electricity bill.
2. Did you know that roughly 70 percent of your household waste can be turned into compost?

The Zip HydroTap produces instant chilled, boiling and sparkling filtered water. It greatly reduces your water wastage, as there’s no need to keep running the tap to reach boiling temperature. It also automatically sleeps when it’s not in use and after two hours it powers down to maintain boiling temperature or it goes into hibernation. It’s up to 40% more energy efficient than a kettle, and a safety lock makes it safer as it stays cool to the touch.
It’s never too late to start going green in the kitchen – even if you do just one thing! Follow our tips above and enjoy the endless benefits of your new environmentally friendly kitchen.
