You’ve got the silicone sponge, you buy food and soap in bulk, and un-paper towels sit on your kitchen counter. Basically, you’re doing everything you can to live an eco-friendly, nontoxic, and sustainable lifestyle. But is your cookware zero-waste?

Cookware can be pricey, especially if you’re shopping with the intention of longevity. Since a huge part of being zero-waste is choosing products that will have a long shelf-life, it’s safe to say sustainable cookware might be on the steeper side, financially. The good news is sustainable options are usually healthier and cheaper in the grand scheme of things. You might have to lay out more money now, but when you don’t have to replace a pan every few years, you’ll be grateful you decided on quality versus quantity.
