philips cook up an impressive eco collection

A new kettle and toaster combo from Philips is being billed as a great way to have breakfast and save the planet while munching and sipping away.

It’s a lofty claim, but it makes sense when you look further into it to discover that the two snappy looking appliances are made from bio-based plastics.

These plastics are created from plant oil waste – yep, used cooking oil – and the two devices are a part of a push by Philips to grow responsibly and sustainably. This manufacturing method results in a reduction in water pollution, CO2 emissions and overall use of natural resources. Win!

The two devices don’t skimp on the features, offering different energy-saving functionalities, and come in eco-friendly packaging.

The Eco Collection Toaster offers eight browning settings, including a reheat and defrost function, while an automatic power button ensures energy savings. It also comes with a handy crumb tray, plus a removable dust cover for keeping the yuk stuff out while in the cupboard or sitting in pride of place on your kitchen bench.

Meanwhile, the Eco Collection Kettle holds 1.7 litres, and touts an easy-to-read water level indicator to help avoid wastage. It also has an automatic power button to help with those all-important energy savings.

The eco friendliness doesn’t end there though. Philips is partnering with EcoMatcher to plant trees with every purchase from the Eco Collection – in other words, buy the kettle and/or toaster and each comes with a redeemable tree! Once redeemed, your tree – part of a Philips-created forest in the Philippines (of course!) – can be named by you (please, no Treey McTree Face) then be tracked via satellite maps. “Tracked? But trees don’t move!” you may rightfully exclaim. Ah, but the app will allow us to see where our tree is planted, track its CO2 performance and, through ForestSounds, tree recipients will be able to listen to the sounds of their tree’s location. Aah!

The Eco Collection Kettle and Toaster are available now at JB Hi-Fi.
