Wiki

Green Pan is a Belgian cookware manufacturer that is the first to launch PTFE free non-stick cookware. Their slogan: When Green became the standard and not an option.

Traditional PTFE pans are manufactured with PFOA and can emit harmful toxins when heated over 500 degrees Fahrenheit. These toxins can be lethal to small animals and harmful to humans.

The Green Pan does not use PFOA and instead uses Thermalon, which reduces carbon emissions while applying the pan coating by 60%.

In addition the company has reduced their packaging material, printing ink and printing colors.

[[The EPA (not exactly a progressive bunch) has asked manufacturers to reduce their PFOA emissions by 95% before 2010.
