Eaters' Oasis

In the ultimate eco-eating experience, environmentally friendly food would be cooked by energy-efficient appliances in a kitchen built with safe, salvaged materials (floor-to-ceiling suggestions from GreenHomeGuide.com are outlined below). But it doesn't take a big investment to add some sustainable flair to your meals. Set the table with recycled-beer-bottle tumblers; some colorful, naturally lacquered bowls made of fast-growing bamboo; and a sleek serving tray made of an old washing-machine drum. An in-kitchen composter will take care of the scraps.
