As forests around the world are depleted everyday, it is more important than ever to realize the environmental impact of our purchases. This even applies to something as seemingly ordinary as salt and pepper shakers, a choice now made easier by Grind Pepper.
The company's Osaka salt and pepper mill set is made from completely organic bamboo, which is great because it is the world's fastest-growing plant. Bamboo is a type of giant grass that provides a great alternative to wood products, which often lead to deforestation and unsustainable agricultural practices. Bamboo is not only a sustainable and eco-friendly material, but it also makes for one nice looking set of shakers.
The pepper mill is made with a non-corrosive carbon steel grinder that comes with a lifetime guarantee, for years of perfectly seasoned meals. The matching salt and pepper set costs $20 and comes in a natural bamboo color, black and (for those looking to "pepper" in some color to their kitchen) red or green.
Grind Pepper offers a seemingly endless line of pepper mills for the seasoned seasoner, but newbies are encouraged to get in on the action, too. If you simply "cannot survive another underseasoned restaurant meal," as one Grind Pepper customer laments on the company's Website, then this is the product for you.
While you're expressing your inner gourmet, fill your new shakers with certified organic sea salt and peppercorns, and end your under-seasoned suffering once and for all. Your taste buds, and the environment, will thank you.
