Cast Iron Frying Pan with Lid Product Eco Rating
Cast Iron products are considered to be very eco-friendly due to their extremely long lifespan, next-to-no/low maintenance and it’s ability to easily be completely recycled. This All-in-one frying pan from Barebones Living is no exception, it’s ultra durable.
High quality Cast Iron products typically last around 100 years of hard use.
The process of mining the Iron can take a lot of energy and other resources, which isn’t ideal, although once mined, it’s easy to then mould the Iron and create Cast Iron products that will either be passed down for many generations or recycled into a Steel product. Iron products are typically much easier to work with and machine than Steel products.
Once the Iron is out of the ground, everything from there-on-out has a much lower impact on the environment and becomes more sustainable every year that it’s still be used. It’s a brilliant alternative to many other products that start to break within years or cannot be recycled.
