Cooking with the planet
From our kitchens we can also reduce our environmental footprint
If we know well what the causes and consequences of our daily actions are, we can contribute to diminish the environmental impact and, therefore, today we are going to see some of them related to the energy consumption in our houses and the waste.
The pressure cooker,the most efficient way to cook
Cooking with a pressure cooker is more efficient than in a traditional casserole.
When cooking with a pressure cooker, in addition to making a healthier meal, we use less water and reduce cooking time by up to 70%, which means significant savings in time, energy and water.
Help us achieve e-cooking for a better world for your children and grandchildren.
REDUCE THE ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT
Kitchen food from season and proximity
Consuming organic, seasonal and local products not only benefits us but also our planet. On the nutritional side, numerous studies support that in order to feel good, we should eat food that grows in the area we live in because it provides us with the nutrients we need according to our climate.
In addition, the rates of pollution that occur when transporting food from one part of the world to another are alarming.
THE KEY TO THE 3 RS IN THE KITCHEN
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
Slightly reducing our consumption of goods and energy expenditure means that we are making a major contribution to reducing its impact on the environment. Let’s try to be responsible consumers.
Reuse: Give a product a second chance. Before throwing away an object that you have at home, consider if you cannot give it another use.
Recycle: Putting each piece of waste in its container will help to generate new products through recycling and thus reduce the use of raw materials to make them.
DO MORE WITH LESS
Go back to the origins:Grandma cooked Eco!
Our grandmothers’ cooking habits were much more ecologically responsible than ours. They would never have bought an onion in a porexpan bag and wrapped in film; the vegetables were bought in bulk, by weight and presented in large burlap sacks; and many years before the supermarkets started charging for plastic bags, your grandmother was already going to the store with her cloth bag.
They would shop every day, going to the neighbourhood shop avoiding the use of the car and consuming the products they planned to cook with right after. A behavior that avoids waste and food spoilage.
