1000 Flowers for the Planet - #590 Recycle Non-Stitck Cookware
Non-stick cookware contains a lot of aluminium, which is 100% recyclable, so take advantage of the opportunity to recycle it. Find a place in your area that will take this product, or lobby your area to start a programme for recycling cookware – or any other aluminium product. In Flower #588 it was recommended to change over to cast iron cookware because of the health risks from non-stick cookware – here is the solution to getting rid of the cookware you no longer want. Flower #584 Avoid Virgin Aluminium gave another reason for recycling this particular metal, which is toxic to manufacture in the first instance. Taking advantage of the fact that aluminium is completely recyclable is a good step in ensuring we get better use from the resources we take from the earth. It makes sense.
