The trend in design towards taking care of our environment through independent and
collective action has developed into what we know today as “Green Design” and Portfolio
Kitchen & Home is proud to support environmentally sustainable building and remodeling
solutions through “green” products and design. We are pleased to offer these and
other products that support this ideal.
