Go Green This Earth Day -- Switch from Metal with Nonstick Coatings to Natural Clay
Emile Henry Cookware, Bakeware, Dinnerware Made of All Natural Ingredients.
Marcigny, France -- Celebrate Earth Day by going green in the kitchen - recycle and use green products for cooking, baking and serving. Emile Henry stewpots, bakeware and dinnerware are made from all natural ingredients from the earth. The slip, or Burgundian clay mixture, is made from clay which has decomposed from rock within the earth's crust for millions of years. The clay is removed from the hills of Marcigny and surrounding towns and combined with other natural raw materials like quartz and water to make the cookware, bakeware and dinnerware. The glazes are also made from natural ingredients, glass and metals. There are no chemical additives.
Emile Henry cookware, bakeware and dinnerware are made in France by a family owned and operated factory and each product is guaranteed safe for the life of the product. There is no interior coating that can peel off or leak out. Consumers don't have to worry about products being recalled. Metal cookware and bakeware, on the other hand, is frequently coated with chemical nonstick coatings that could eventually peel or chip off.
Emile Henry products are made in an environmentally friendly factory where all packaging is recyclable and made from recycled materials. Pallets, paper bags and cartons are recycled through paper factories. After the useful life of a plaster mold is finished and any damaged or discarded pieces during the manufacturing processes are recycled through cement factories that then use the powdered plaster in their cement mixes. All water that is used for finishing and deglazing is recycled through the factory. None of the water leaves the various facilities. And the carbon oxide and gases that escape from the kilns are filtered so that no noxious or unhealthy gas escapes into the environment. According to Jacques Henry, President & Owner of Emile Henry, "It's important to work hard to preserve nature and control our impact on the environment".
