1. Hydropower: Pre-Grid Hydroelectric Power
Hydroelectric power is renewable, produces no waste, does not burn fossil fuel, hydroelectric power and does not produce “greenhouse gas”. Deerfield River, where the factory sits adjacent is one of the most heavily used rivers in the country and yet it is one of the most pristine rivers in Massachusetts, and a nationally renowned destination for canoeing, kayaking, and fly fishing.
2. Recycled Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is one of the world’s most recycled materials—in fact, it is recycled more frequently than either paper or glass. Stainless steel does not lose any of its inherent physical properties during recycling. It takes much less energy and fewer raw materials to recycle stainless steel, than it does to refine iron ore. The high quality stainless steel Lamson & Goodnow uses to produce some of the finest cutlery in the world contains 30% recycled content. Lamson & Goodnow works hard to use or recycle 100% of the stainless steel used in the manufacture of our fine cutlery.
