Interview with Kitchens, Baths & More – Part 2

Abbey Henning interviewed by Hilary Sopata

Welcome back, Abbey!  How has your work with green kitchens and baths affected people’s lives?

By providing our clients with kitchen and bath design knowledge, as well as quality products we have helped make their space more functional and maximize storage space. Also add the health advantages of green kitchens – lower VOCs and health, and how people overall benefit personally from green kitchens. By using green cabinetry, the off gassing is lower, making the air you breathe much healthier. Plato Woodwork uses an industrial grade finish on their cabinets, as a result, only warm water or mild cleaners are suggested to be used to always keep the air you breathe healthy.

Through our profession we have learned the importance of using green products and minimizing waste. We make sure to recycle and use public transportation when available.

 Tell us about how being eco-conscious has changed both your business and personal life.

Becoming more eco-conscious has made me more aware of my surroundings and the effect that my decisions make on our earth and the limited natural resources available.

What is the greatest impact that going green has made on your life?

Going green has made us change the way we have made buying decisions in our everyday life. Being aware of the green movement has made us more aware of the products [all of the individual components] being used in items we purchase helping us choose items that are more earth friendly.

Thank you for sharing your story with us, Abbey!
