They say the kitchen is the heart of the home but it’s also one of the easiest places to go green. So we’ve pulled together some simple ways you can transform your kitchen into an eco-friendly space in no time. Plus, once you’ve gone green you can check out our Kitchen Pinterest page filled with interior design inspiration to have you pinning up a storm.

Bring Your Own Bags 

Invest in a few tote bags you can take to the shops with you to save using plastic bags to bring your groceries home. To get in the habit of bringing your own bags, we recommend popping them straight back in your car after you unload your groceries into the kitchen.

Filter Your Water 

Save yourself money and limit the amount of plastic you use by purchasing a filtered water pitcher to keep in your fridge. Then when you head out for the day you can fill up your water bottle with fresh cold water without having to spend anything.

Choose Natural Cleaning Products 

People often think it’s more expensive to switch to eco-friendly cleaning products, however, there are so many options to choose from now and products are being even more readily available, so you just need to do a little shopping around. Plus, you can also create your own natural cleaning solutions at home with a few ingredients and easy recipes.

Swap to Glass Containers 

Glass storage containers are longer lasting and don’t contain any of the chemicals plastic containers do. There are plenty of affordable options available in various sizes for you to choose from.
