An eco-friendly cookware is as healthy for the planet as it is for food. And what better way to make a truly green cookware than to make it locally.

MEC is made from fully renewable raw material
Unlike metal ores that are constantly depleting because of excessive mining, MEC’s raw material ‘primary clay’ is fully renewable. It replenishes naturally after it is harvested. Also, harvesting of clay does not cause any negative impact on flora or fauna.
MEC is locally made from locally sourced raw material
MEC is made in the USA using the raw material harvested from unfarmed and non-industrialized lands in the USA. The testing of a clay sample is done in a reputable state lab (based in USA). This testing is important to verify that the clay is 100% non-toxic. Any imported raw material or cookware may be labelled ‘green’ or ‘eco-friendly’. But there is no hard evidence to support these claims.
MEC ships carbon neutral
Making a product in the country it is being sold in is not only a morally correct thing for the manufacturer, but also adds to the ‘eco-friendly’ value to the product. MEC chose to manufacture right here in the USA because it wanted to be close to the majority of its customer base so your cookware can ship right from ‘home’!
By cutting down on shipping miles, it does not create large carbon footprints. Additionally, MEC uses 100% biodegradable shipping material (no plastic)! They opt for carbon neutral shipping, at no cost to the customers, to further protect the environment. This program plants trees around the world to offset carbon emissions caused by shipping.
As a planet-conscious customer, it is a great first step to start buying locally sourced products. By buying MEC cookware, you will be supporting a local business and switching to a product that has many health benefits.
