The New GreenPan


Oh, the woes of Teflon. Dangerously bad for the environment (and potentially humans), but so much easier to clean than stainless steel. Now, the best of both worlds is up for grabs thanks to the Home Shopping Network.

The first cookware to use Thermolon non-stick coating, the new GreenPan line is ceramic based and doesn’t contain any PTFE – the chemical found in traditional degradable coating, or eco-hazzard chemical PFOA. Designed to be the last cookware you buy, this six-piece set doesn’t wear over time and the super non-stick release works up to a sizzling 850 degrees.

Bonus: Throw anything in, and skip the oil. Because nothing sticks, you’ll be cooking up healthier meals minus the once-necessary butters, fats or oils.

$99.90 for 6-piece set on HSN

Nature Air: Carbon Neutral in Costa Rica

Next time you puddle jump to an ecolodge in Costa Rica, consider hopping aboard a NatureAir flight. You’ll be flying high, and supporting the first and only carbon neutral airline in the world. Recently honored by the International Community for Ecotourism, NatureAir voluntarily compensates 100 percent of its carbon emissions through the conservation of tropical, Costa Rican rain forests.

The airline, which became carbon neutral before the craze—three years ago—is currently keeping 130 hectares of tropical forest in the Osa Peninsula protected from clear cutting and ranching to provide communities with competitive income.

Says the airline marketing rep, Alexi Huntley, “We decided to go carbon neutral because we wanted to help the environment and saw an opportunity to remedy it. The fact that we have become a catalyst for change is icing on the cake.”
