We are thrilled to have been mentioned in journalist Kate Watson Smyth’s award winning website ‘Mad about the House’. Her latest segment ‘The Directory’ highlights businesses that are reducing their impact on the planet to #DoLessHarm. ?
Why Kate Watson-Smyth is Mad About UKE
A recent addition to Mad About the House, Kate’s directory is full of companies that are ‘genuinely trying to do less harm’. So that when you shop, you can determine which companies are doing good for the environment! We are in great company, mentioned along side huge household names such as John Lewis and Made.com. This segment directs readers looking to change aspects of their home in the right direction. Whilst telling them all about the businesses mentioned and how they help the environment.
Mad about the House mentions how UKE prevents kitchens entering landfill, and also helps reduce a new kitchens carbon footprint. Also referenced in the article is how we are currently selling our 1500th kitchen in 2019! Through doing this, the equivalent of 1800 tons of landfill has been prevented. Kate discloses how:
“UKE brings affordable, pre-owned kitchens to market for ethically motivated and cost-conscious buyers.”
As well as this, the earth isn’t the only one that benefits! Sellers who would often see their used kitchen go to landfill are able to make money to put towards their next kitchen purchase. Our buyers can then buy an approved used or ex display kitchen for up to 80% off RRP.
UKE’s efforts are also supporting the UN goals of sustainable consumption and production. This means that everyone involved in selling or buying a kitchen through us is helping to do less harm!
If you are interested in buying or selling a used or ex display kitchen, check out our website for more information on how to do so.
