When it comes to sustainable ideas and eco-friendly practices in the kitchen, there aren't many ideas that catch you off guard anymore. This morning, however, I stumbled across something that I hadn't ever seen implemented before. Can you guess what's behind door number one and two?These doors are trash and recyclable chutes. Or dueling recyclables if you sort anything out. Although we've all seen multiple bins for such things and have seen pull out cans under a cabinet, I've never personally seen chutes built into a backsplash before.
Would this idea help you out while you're cooking since most of our trash and kitchen recyclables are generated while we're preparing meals? Or would you worry that other things would take the express route down the slide, like your cookie cutters while working on a recipe?
Is it a functional design or something flashy added for those who don't want to look at trash cans? Sound off with our comments below!
