Spring is on it’s way and soon there will be lots of wonderful produce to fill our kitchens. Most of us have thought about our food choices and how we can be green. Many of us are aware of using non toxic cleaners to keep our hearths clean and happy. However it can be a challenge to keep up with all the different ways in which we can make our most used room of the house as green as possible. Deborah Eden Tull has written a book that takes even the most novice greenie and turns them into a pro in no time.
The book covers topics such as sustainability and zero waste. How to instructions Â on creating compost and growing your own food. Learn how to conserve energy in your cooking routine and how to kick the plastics in the kitchen.
Learn about the honeybee crisis and soil depletion. “If any good comes from disasters such as the honeybee crisis, it is that it finally opens our eyes to the delicacy and inherent value of a species that we took for granted and reminds us of the web of interconnection that is our food system.”
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in making a smaller impact on the planet. There are also a couple of recipes in the book so you can put your skills and tools to work making some sustainable grub. So stock up on produce bags, get some cloth napkins and get ready to make a natural kitchen.
“One of the first ECO-kitchens I ever stepped into belonged to my friend’s hippie grandmother, who lived on a small homestead in the woods in Oregon. Her kitchen smelled of fresh rosemary, dried sage and freshly baked bread. The walls were natural wood and the window looked out upon an orchard, a garden with chickens, a pet goat and to help “close the cycle” a sizzling hot compost pile.”
How is your kitchen already eco friendly? What are some of the things you would like to do to make it more so?
