Earlier this year, I was in a charming country farm home in the Blue Mountains that had been remodeled using only reclaimed and recycled products.  It was stunning and I’ve never quite been able to get it out of my head.  Since then and, as I continue in my own journey to  grow in my understanding of green living, I love to see what others are doing to make their homes more environmentally friendly.

Most home owners at one time or another, do a renovation project in their homes.  This is a great opportunity to look for green options and a little research can lead to all kinds of interesting ideas.

Here is a video that looks at a “green” kitchen.  Nothing in it is too complex or expensive for the average home owner to incorporate in a kitchen remodel:


I especially love the idea of using recycled glass materials for the counter top and using bamboo for cabinetry.  Did you know some bamboos grow up to 2 feet in a day?  I’ve even heard of 4 feet.  And yes, it can grow in Canada so it would be good of course to look for sources nearby where possible to reduce shipping and transportation impacts on the environment.

As the demand for environmentally sustainable housing grows exponentially each year, I would think a kitchen that incorporates “green” features wherever possible will also add value to a home.

Darn it, now I want to remodel my 80’s kitchen…
