One in four people would now buy a used kitchen as a gesture of support for the environment – This is great News
Wednesday, May 1st, 2019

New research, commissioned by The Used Kitchen Company, discovers that Britain’s increasingly “green” consumers want non-recycling kitchen showrooms to be red carded. This is due to an increased awareness of home renovators becoming aware of the concept of kitchen recycling.

It’s been 13 years since we launched the concept of kitchen recycling  to encourage homeowners to recycle their kitchens. Our research shows that this has now truly made a significant impact, with those surveyed saying that their main motivation in buying a used kitchen would be to do something “green and environmentally friendly”.

“We are super-charged following the endorsement consumers have given to our 13.5-year campaign to get Britain recycling its kitchens. To have reached a position in which one in four people would now buy a used kitchen as a gesture of support for the environment is truly phenomenal. We shall continue to spread the word and work towards thousands more people joining the success we have built.”

Nearly one in five said that if they were to recycle their own kitchen when planning a refurbishment, their main motivation would be to “help the planet by reducing waste”.  The study also found that 27% believe showrooms should be forced to recycle their ex-displays to help the environment; with 1/20 consumers saying they would like to see fines brought on individuals who do not recycle their kitchens.

Now that is a result, please keep spreading the word.
