Sustainable kitchens: the green furnishing trend

We have had the opportunity in other insights to mark the path that environmental sustainability has taken in our sensibilities and our life practices. Whereas a few years ago, sustainability as a daily practice remained the preserve of the few, the pandemic has put the need to rethink our daily behaviour profoundly at the centre of our lives. We have all realised that our actions have an impact on what surrounds us and this impact rebounds on our conditionone of life.

The pandemic has prompted scholars of human behaviour to speak of a 'new normal', a normality that involves greater attentionone to what we eat, the resources we consume, and how we furnish our homes. This new normality has triggered a green furnishing trend that has won over more and more persone who are interested in furnishing their homes in a way that respects the environment and their health.
There has been talk of domestic pollutionof substances that significantly worsen the quality of the air we breathe in our homes, of homemade cleaning products that do not contain harmful ingredients, of reclaimed wooden furniture, of durable materials that extend the life cycle of objects and furniture for our homes.

The kitchen, more than all the other rooms in the house, is the one that has undergone the most noticeable changes, because the kitchen is the place where we process food and is the one that requires the most hygiene and safety. The green furnishing trend in the kitchen does not only concern the type of furniture we choose to furnish the spazio kitchen but also has to do with a novelty concerning accessories, such as the kitchen sink o i kitchen sink mixers.

There has, in fact, been talk of green sinks or ecological sinkskitchen sinks designed to be strong, durable, made from recycled materials and with resource-conserving production processes.

Plados Telma recently presented its project Rinnova with an originally green sink, made with more than the 90% of recovered raw material, internal and external production wasteone otherwise destined to become waste and become 100% recyclable.

Choosing a green sink means choosing a sink that has the same performance as a traditional sinkThe difference is all in the impact that the production of that sink has had on the environment, because it has made it possible to reduce the amount of waste, made it possible to transformaransforming waste into a resource. Choosing a green sink means opting for a circular development model that reduces the production of pollutantsone for the same product quality compared to a traditional product.

A green sink, as well as being environmentally friendly, is a sink that retains in its designone and constructionone the importance of being aesthetically and functionally beautiful to the needs we have in the kitchen.
