Score one for Florida – looks like they have a kitchen design company that knows their stuff.
While most homeowners may think of “green kitchen design” only as selecting sustainable, eco-friendly materials or purchasing energy-efficient appliances, Thomas R. Kelly, founder and president of TRK Design Company (Today’s Real Kitchen Design Company), says there is much more to green kitchen design: donating or reselling the homeowner’s existing kitchen for re-use.
“Gently used existing cabinetry, countertops, appliances, windows, doors and fixtures can be re-used by direct donation to non-profit organizations or by working with non-profit kitchen and building re-use companies,” Kelly says. “These donations can yield significant advantages for the environment, for the homeowners, and for those whom the non-profits benefit.”
