Is cast iron a green material for cookware?

    Bbrenna, iron cookware, when naturally derived from ore, is a fairly natural material to work with, is sanitary, and would definitely serve its purpose while maintaining a little to no by-product output. Hope I helped, and have a green day!

    Another reason why cast iron pans could fall into the category of “green cookware” is that they last forever, if you take good care of them. Well-seasoned cast-iron pans can last for almost a lifetime, which means that you dont have to regularly replace the pan, reducing the environmental impact of your cooking.

    Another benefit that cast iron offers, due to its durability, is that it gets better with age.  The more times a cast iron gets reused, the easier it is it take care of.  It requires less seasoning and the non-stick factor improves.  A great tip I received from a friend is to buy used cast iron at thrift stores or through online retailers like ebay to take advantage of this.
