HOW TO GET STARTED

Many of the small objects we have in the kitchen are full of plastic. Many pepper mills have plastic grinding components that can lead to plastics in the ground pepper. For shakers, pepper sitting for months can leach in plastic over time. This pepper mill creates fresh pepper that tastes better as well. Small, high-quality alternatives start to push plastics out of our lives where they are not needed.

EMBRACE

  1. All metal components mean that this pepper mill does not impart any plastic into the pepper
  2. The mill is aesthetically pleasing and a joy to use
  3. At the end of life (which should be decades away) the mill does not emit any microplastics

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Many pepper mills have plastic grinding components that can lead to plastic ending up in food
  2. Non-grinding pepper shakers can impart microplastics onto the stored pepper
  3. Most plastic shakers have a lifespan of about 3-5 years. At the end of their service life, these mills and shakers will end up in landfill
