Our Place is known for being an ethically sound and transparent cookware brand that seeks to make cooking and fellowship “cool” again.
The brand’s best-selling Always Pan has been raved about for its 8-in-1 functionality and form factor and is a top-rated winner among home cooks. Now, the independent brand is introducing a new sage colorway to the pan’s three standard color options (char, steam and spice) in celebration of Earth Day 2020.

Launched by former Malala Fund co-founder Shiza Shahid, the brand explained in a statement where the inspiration for the new green color came from.
“The green color is a nod to Earth Day and the importance of sustainability,” the statement reads while highlighting that green is Shahid’s mother’s favorite color. “It is also the perfect Mother’s Day gift.”
The product boasts the same star features the Always Pan has been praised for. Among its key components is the smart modular lid that releases steam when you want and locks it in when you don’t. The pan also comes with a steamer basket and nesting spatula and features an easy-pour spout and a heavy-gauge cast aluminum core that evenly distributes heat when cooking. This material also prevents food from sticking to the pan.
In addition to the pan, the brand has released new green-tinged hand-blown drinking glasses that come in a set of four.

Further adding to its push to become more sustainable, starting April 22, 2020, Our Place is launching new packaging that the brand explained is “designed to be 100 percent free of plastic, fully recyclable and biodegradable, and using a clean soy-based ink.”
This new packaging approach reduces waste by eliminating the need for a shipper box, allowing for the product box to function as a shipper box.
Our Place also recently partnered with Feeding America to help ensure that no one goes hungry during the current pandemic. Thus far, they have donated over 25,000 meals and, according to the brand’s statement, “are committed to doubling that in April.”
