Do you believe that by making small changes in the right direction you can bring about a positive change on the environment? If yes, then you need to know about this important lifestyle change that makes you healthy and restores that of the planet.
Conventional cookware is made from metals or ceramics and is unhealthy in every aspect. Here’s how they contribute to contamination of natural resources and indirectly harm us in the process:
A large number of trees are cut to clear land for mining metals and mineral ores (to make ceramics). This disrupts wildlife in that area permanently. The byproducts of the mining process are highly toxic and render natural resources like land, water, and air unfit for use by humans and animals.
Energy is consumed in large amounts for processing of these metals, minerals, and ores before they can be used to make something and the poisonous gases released in this process pollute the environment. The ores and minerals are not renewable – once consumed they can’t be replaced, negatively impacting the earth’s magnetic fields.
A Truly Healthy & Green Alternative
Pure clay is a naturally healthy material that is not only good for your family’s health but for the planet. It is innately inert and so, unlike metals/ceramics, it doesn’t leach while cooking, which makes it perfect for healthy cooking.
Pure clay doesn’t need to be mined, it is harvested from earth’s surface and is 100% renewable. Even after use, it’s fully biodegradable – no toxic byproducts, no poisonous gases. In fact, it nourishes instead of polluting it while “becoming” a part of the earth again. Moreover, working with pure clay is nothing like working with metals – no toxic mines and no toxic byproducts that may harm the health of a potter.
It is in making these small, everyday choices that we make an overall global impact, in other words, the choice of clothes you wear, your shoes, the cookware, your sheets all of them directly give you the power to impact. For example, if only 10% of the population can use this personal and planet friendly clay cookware, we can give a break to the earth from mining. Now that’s an earth-positive impact you can make!
