Martin Higgins from Malta is a fan of cast iron cookware. Steel fabrication, he says, also has an environmental cost, but buying one steel frying pan for a lifetime is greener than buying a new Teflon pan every year or two.
www.plasticless.com has a collection of articles that deals with pots and pans to packaging items. There is also an endearing piece on the good old cardboard box. And if you see how plastics harm our oceans click on some of the links at the site.
Then there is also a sardonic little piece on how combat helmets could be put to use as cyclists’ headgear. Log on to the site and it is quite likely you won’t see the ubiquitous plastic in the same light.
