Dear Friends of Falk,
We hope you are enjoying this summer season! It is the time of year to appreciate the great outdoors and all the fresh fruits and vegetables that go along with it. It is also time to think of ways we can help sustain our beautiful planet for future generations. Among the many ways that sustainability has been defined, one coined back in 1987 by Gro Brundtland and the World Commission on Environment and Development still resonates: [Sustainability] seeks to meet the needs and aspirations of the present without compromising the ability to meet those of the future.
We think this idea still rings true. And, for its part, copper can be 100% recycled without any loss in performance. The energy required to recycle is approximately 20% of that required for primary production (from mining). At the factory in Belgium where our handcrafted cookware is made, most of the waste is copper scraps. It is all recycled.
The thermal conductivity of copper is second only to silver. Its high thermal conductivity reduces heat loss and the carbon emissions associated with it. Cooking with copper is efficient and reduces your carbon footprint!
Copper is a highly durable material that will continue to function throughout its lifetime without a significant loss in performance. The copper component is highly unlikely to be the reason for a device to reach the end of its useful life. Copper is also corrosion resistant; because copper develops its own protective coating, it has an excellent resistance to corrosion in all kinds of common environments. In our professional quality cookware this means the pans will last a lifetime. They can even become a family heirloom to be passed on.
Enjoy—knowing our copper pans are naturally earth-friendly.
P.S. This month we are having a sale on our entire line of frying pans. Click here to check them out.
