Imagine a beautiful afternoon where you have planned a delicious and healthy lunch with your family. You take a quick ride to the farmers market to buy all the fresh, organic, locally grown ingredients so nothing ‘toxic’ comes between you and your family enjoying a nutritious lunch together. You head home and pick up your favorite metal cookware to cook these wisely chosen ingredients healthfully, but wait, is it the right way to do it?
Why metals and ceramics can never be “green”?
Metals are innately reactive and leach while cooking. They react to nutrients in food and contaminate it. As a result, even the healthiest ingredients lose their nutritional value and become toxic to the body. But this is not all, metal pots and pans are equally detrimental to the planet.
Mining and extraction of metals call for massive deforestation and pollute air, water, and land by releasing toxic waste. The health issues caused to people working in the mines and processing plants are evident of how toxic metals can be. Everything from procuring raw material to putting the finished cookware on the shelves requires tremendous amounts of energy — another huge burden on already depleting non-renewable sources of energy.
And ceramic cookware is no different for it is laden with chemicals containing ‘metal’ oxides. Lastly, disposing off metals without affecting the environment is a great challenge. For these reasons, any metal or ceramic cookware labelled ‘green’ is only misleading the customers.
