Six tips to be a more sustainable kitchen

  1. Dishwasher: Always use a dishwasher (high energy rated appliance) when it’s full of dishes. Also, skip the pre-rinsing of dishes as most modern dishwashers are powerful enough to take care of the mess. Just a proper scrape is all that should be needed. Set the finishing setting on drying rather than heating. Doing these things will save you time, water, energy and money.
 
  1. Install a Bokashi One Kitchen Composting System: By using your scraps for compost, you are preventing unnecessary landfill. Bokashi composting can compost most food scraps including tea bags, egg shells, meats (without bones) and vegetation. Simply follow the instructions and bury the waste when the fermentation process has been fulfilled. See more here about the Bokashi One Kitchen composting system here.
 
  1. Cook with pot lids when using the stovetop for cooking: where it’s possible, use pot and pan lids in order to speed up the heating process and to ensure you use less energy. Heat escapes when a pot/ pan doesn’t have a lid on during the cooking process and takes longer for the vessel to heat up.
 
  1. Install LED lights in your kitchen: We all know how important lighting can be when cooking in the kitchen. However, did you know you can save quite a bit of energy and money by installing LED lights rather than using traditional halogen lights? LED lights need to be installed correctly by a certified electrician as their energy requirements are less than halogens and may need a transformer installed. LED lights can reduce your lighting bill by up to 80%. That makes quite a difference! You can find out about Government rebates for energy saving measures here.
 
  1. Check your refrigerator: Be sure to have your refrigerator serviced regularly to ensure that it is running efficiently and not using too much energy. You can also replace the seals every few years in order to make sure the cold air is not escaping through tarnished rubber seals.
 
  1. Use Eco-friendly cleaning products: It’s important to take note of what you are using in your kitchen and what goes down the drain to flow onto the waterways. Be mindful that harsh chemicals, such as bleach can cause serious issues for the environment. There are a number of eco-friendly products on the market that are able to provide a more sustainable cleaning solution.
