Many of the products that are found in the kitchen, like food, everyday items, and appliances, can be recycled to promote a healthier environment. In fact, some kitchen products, like vegetable-based cooking oils, can even be reused as fuel! Recycling waste products doesn’t take very much effort once a system is set up, and it helps cut down the cost of utilities. However, it’s important to remember that some kitchen items, like glass and large appliances, need to be handled with care because improperly disposing of them can actually harm the environment. For example, the CFCs found in older refrigerators and freezers can lead to further ozone depletion if they aren’t carefully handled when the appliance is recycled.
