Small Green Choices: Steel Switch Plate Covers

Pin it button

We love to check in on Danny Seo, to see how the remodel of his new midcentury modern pad is going.

He's always doing something big, like designing mattresses, or helping to green JC Penney. However, this week, we were struck by one of his much subtler moves.Seo decided to replace his old, dingy, dirty, stained, white plastic switch plate covers with stainless steel ones from Lowe's.

It's not an earth-shattering choice, but it's a significant one. The stainless steel switch plate covers are significantly more durable than their plastic counterparts (they should last as long as the house does) and they are, as Seo puts it, "infinitely recyclable."

They also look nice.

What are some small green choices you've made recently?
