Being eco-friendly is high on the agenda for everyone at the moment (and rightly so), and kitchen design is no different.
Not only is it imperative that sustainable design materials are used wherever possible in our homes, we also need to ensure we're recycling our bottles, food packaging and everything else that we use in our kitchen.
The reason that so many people still don't recycle is that it simply isn't very convenient.
But there are a few solutions if you want to help save the planet without having different coloured bins everywhere, cluttering up the kitchen you've worked so hard to design.
One such example is the 4 Compartment Recycle Bin from Wren.
Not only does it make recycling your kitchen waste quicker and easier, but it also slides neatly away inside a cupboard door, so it's out of sight.
If you'd prefer a freestanding solution then this 30 litre triple recycling bin is a neat product from Home Recycling.
Like it or not, the pressure to recycle will only increase over time so whether it's now or later, these kinds of products will soon be common in all kitchens.
