Eco-friendly Kitchen Tips from the Food Network

The Food Network has 10 Eco Friendly Kitchen Tips on their website.  Here are just a few ideas that offer some very simple ideas to help make a difference.  
Keep an eye on the “9.”
If the numbered stickers on fruits and veggies start with the #9, that means your produce is organic and free of pesticides.
B.Y.O.B. – “bring your own bag.”
More and more supermarkets are selling reuseable shopping bags.  Take advantage of this option and stop using plastic bags whenever possible. 
Grill it!
You can reduce the cost of Air Conditioning bills by grilling outdoors.  An outdoor grill not only takes less energy than your stove but also helps keep heat out of the house.
Chill out.
Another way to save cooling and electicity costs is to fill empty space in your refrigerator or freezer with crumpled newspapers or full water bottles.
