I'll explain ...... We've just completed a kitchen project for a lovely lady who lives locally who made her choices based on her likes / dislikes in the normal time honoured fashion without even considering anything Eco.
When her work was completed and we said this has been a very Eco driven project, she asked why, when we explained she was absolutely thrilled to have a brand new totally Eco kitchen.
She then admitted that she was so proud to have been an ethical purchaser that she was going to make the point to all her friends !!
Almost like the Eco content was secondary to her choices but features primarily in how she will describe her shiny new kitchen to her friends.
Circumstances like this can often be the most basic entry into the world of thinking environmentally but can change a persons thinking to be more Eco friendly in the future !!
|Using tiles from the Johnson range that have a recycled content, as far as we know the only UK tiles to have this.|
|The worktops are from the same manufacturer as the cabinets and doors featuring the same recycled / FSC mix timber content|
|And the sink is from the Blanco range having high recycled content stainless steel and the dishwasher is again from Gorenje.|
This, then, is almost Eco by stealth with all the elements: cabinets, doors, appliances, worktops, sink, tiles and lighting making the project as Eco as it gets and without a single environmental factor driving the choices made .
It's a funny old world and we're converting it to Eco, 1 step at a time
You could say her friends will be "green" with envy !! Strange how sometimes the blog title comes to you right at the end
As green as ever, Jules
