How To Renovate Your Kitchen Sustainably

Choose appliances with high energy efficiency ratings  to reduce energy consumption.

Energy-Efficient Appliances

Opt for cabinets made from sustainable materials such as bamboo, reclaimed wood, or those certified by the Forest Stewardship Council 

Eco-Friendly Cabinets

Before buying new, see if existing kitchen elements like cabinets or fixtures can be repainted, refinished, or repurposed.

Repurpose And Reuse

Replace old light bulbs with LED bulbs, which use at least 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting.

LED Lighting

Install smart thermostats and energy monitors to keep track of and manage your kitchen's energy use efficiently.

Energy Management

Plan your renovation carefully to minimize waste, and dispose of renovation debris responsibly.

Minimize Waste
