This is definitely an un-economical blog post, only made possible because we did not have to purchase the subject-matter ourselves.

At the Sustainable Living Expo, Tim and I had the good fortune of stopping by a booth and speaking with a lovely lady named Constanza. She sells Rosetta Stone cookware, which is traditional cookware from Brazil, made sustainably from soapstone and copper.
