Show Notes

In our throw-away society, we have no momentum towards sustainability and re-use. An unfathomable amount of disposable items, part toxic and part precious, are being discarded in landfill, offloading the responsibility of the impossible clean up to future generations. It is up to us to place demand on industry to create products that are sustainable and ethical. And when there is already a product that fits this bill, we must certainly support the people making it.

Today we talk to Mark Henry, engineer, and founder of Solidteknics, an innovative Australian company producing virtually indestructible cookware from high quality materials. Mark’s philosophy is to build multi-generational products that can be used for hundreds of years to come. This is a fantastic talk with a down to earth visionary that will surely inspire.
