Pi Pan in the Sky
Give this question an honest think: How many times do you order take-out pizza per year? No, we’re not trying to get you to change your diet (we love a bit of cheesy, sauce-laden goodness on lazy evenings in, too), but we would like you to reflect on the number of cardboard boxes you discard of in the process. In the U.S. alone, three billion—that’s right, billion—pizza boxes are thrown out every year. That’s a lot of needless refuse chucked into garbage dumps.
Pi Pan is a revolutionary answer to this rubbish problem. The reusable cylindrical pan is made of commercial grade stainless steel, super-thin and lightweight, and can be used over 1,000 times. You’ll have to go through a crazy amount of pepperoni to wear out this BPA-free baby. It also makes for a hotter, crispier, and much more delicious pizza minus that weird, cardboard-y taste.
The company is currently being funded via an IndieGoGo campaign, with an ultimate goal of $70,000. Prominent environmentalist Laurie David was so wowed by Pi Pan that she’s vowed to match funding raised on the site.
