K/BIS 2007 Goes 'Green'

The new color of design was 'green' at the 2007 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show & Conference (K/BIS) in Las Vegas. From manufacturers who are introducing environmentally friendly appliances whose parts are almost all recyclable and those who are unveiling countertop lines that are made from up to 12% recycled materials to those manufacturers who are touting sinks that are made out of recycled copper, those presenting low-VOC cabinetry in warm woods and those offering flooring made from easily grown bamboo, the emphasis is definitely on protecting the environment through great product design. Manufacturers and designers in the kitchen and bath industry at the show were recognizing that there's a growing movement among consumers who want to help the environment, but don't want to sacrifice great design.
