More and more people are looking to green their kitchens for one simple reason: We spend so much time there. What are the basics of a green kitchen? Look for cabinet fronts made from FSC-certified or other renewable woods, formaldehyde-free boxes, and insist on low- or zero-VOC glues, stains, and finishes.
Green countertop options range from natural quartz to recycled glass & oyster shells—all durable, sustainable, and beautiful. For info on donating salvaged materials from your remodeling project, one place to visit is Habitat for Humanity.
