KISS time

The Used Kitchen Company (TUKC) is encouraging homeowners to use Valentine’s Day to demonstrate their love for their soon-to-be-replaced kitchen – as well as the environment – or engage in some KISS time.

Since introducing kitchen recycling in 2005, TUKC has saved a total of 18,000 tonnes of unnecessary kitchen waste from landfill.

Still, the company wants to win more hearts and minds over to the principle of recycling a kitchen.
The passionate kitchen sustainability pioneer – a My Green Pod Hero – is urging refurbishing homeowners to consider their kitchen a ‘lonely heart’ seeking love a second time around.

By putting it back into the circular economy (instead of binning it), homeowners can allow it to become someone else’s ‘significant other’.

If it is still in its prime and ready to bring joy to another home, your kitchen will continue to get the love it deserves.

A Kitchen Passport

If you’re not yet ready to let go of your kitchen, TUKC is asking you to seal its future with a KISS.

In just a few minutes, you can show your love both for your kitchen and the planet by creating a Kitchen Passport. 
You can spend a bit of time over this or just register here and Keep It Simple and Sustainable (KISS) by filling in some key basic details about your kitchen in its own digital identity document.

This can later be transferred to a new buyer, once their relationship with their own kitchen is over.
Doing this one simple thing makes the kitchen’s future recycling much easier.

Just detail the key facts that will allow the kitchen to be dated, dismantled at a future time (when a new love arrives) and eventually recycled with no regrets.

Think a kitchen’s equivalent of a car logbook and you’ve got it. Your kitchen could even enjoy a third marriage, not just a second!
