A good idea for your eco-friendly kitchen countertop:
Teragren's Bamboo Parquet Butcher Block countertops are made from bamboo, a rapidly renewable resource. Available in a natural and caramelized color, the countertops are offered in standard sizes with a formaldehyde-free and food-safe adhesive.
When replacing appliances, check for an energy efficiency label. Many new appliances come with an Energy Efficiency Rating (EER). The higher the EER, the less it will cost you to operate the appliance.
