BARE Cookware aims to make affordable, amazing looking, Michelin grade quality kitchenware. We also want to minimize the environmental impact we make. The production and shipping of our knives unavoidably generates CO2 emissions. We compensate for this CO2 ten times over. Every knife we sell essentially decreases our overall carbon footprint.
We believe in responsible production. Therefore we compensate all CO2 used to make and ship your knife 10 ten times over.
Each year we support a project to offset the CO2 emissions from the production of our products 10 times.
2020 - In the Indian region of Raichur there is a serious shortage of wood due to deforestation. Moreover, the traditional way of cooking causes a lot of harmful smoke indoors, and women must spend a lot of time gathering wood. For every knife, we make a donation to help provide these women with convenient, clean burning stoves. This way, everybody benefits and your purchase will be Carbon Negative.
2021 - We supported the Trees for Tigers project, to plant 1800 acacia trees in India. Similipal National Park is home to the only known habitat of the elusive melanotic, or black, tigers. These tree will help restore their habitat and compensate about 720 metric tons of Co2 in their lifetime.
2022 - We supported the Forest Garden Program in Senegal. Working with local technicians they are planning to plant 1.000.000 trees in 500 farms. We contributed 1000 Acacia trees, enough to compensate 400 metric tons of Co2 in their lifetime.
We hope to lead by example in contributing to a more sustainable future.
