Cooking Green: Reducing Your Carbon Footprint in the Kitchen—the New Green Basics Way

And of course, your old fridge has to go somewhere--and that somewhere is likely a landfill. The one-time carbon impact of these two factors likely dwarfs your small annual gains in energy efficiency, even after you consider the sum of those gains over the entire year life of the fridge. A better solution: follow Kate's advice pages to optimize and extract more usable life out of your existing fridge, and defer buying a new refrigerator until even more efficient models become available. This is a counterintuitive, but critically important, way to think about the environmental impact of a major purchase for your home, and not many environmental advocates think this way.

Fortunately, this kind of intelligent thinking is on display throughout this highly readable book.

Even big companies with armies of accountants can be penny wise and pound foolish. The same logic applies to us when we make major purchasing decisions at home with the environment--and our wallets--in mind. However, there are many ways to increase your oven's efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint see pages Use it to shrink your own carbon cookprint! Stay tuned--in the coming months I hope to write more on the various environmental issues we face when we cook and eat. If you enjoy reading Casual Kitchen, tell a friend and spread the word!

Cook More. Think More. Spend Less. Search Casual Kitchen. Casual Kitchen had the good fortune of receiving a review copy of yet another exceptional book: Kate Heyhoe's Cooking Green. As with any book or cookbook I review, my goal is to warn you away from the bad ones and draw your attention to the good ones. Here's another really good one.

It's a how-to on reducing your kitchen's environmental impact or to borrow Kate's phrase, "shrinking your cookprint" , and it ties together many of the food philosophy issues I address here at Casual Kitchen. Best of all, it's so well-written and informative that I can say confidently that it's one of the few environmental book I've ever read that's actually fun to read. Cooking Green 's key gift to readers, however, is its surplus of creative and counterintuitive thinking--and its absolute lack of junk science. Did you do a good thing for the environment?
