From straws to lunchboxes, stainless steel products have gradually gained popularity over the years with many stainless steel options now available on the market labelled as an ‘eco-friendly’ option.
But, have you ever taken the time to understand and learn a little bit more about what makes stainless steel sustainable?
It’s common knowledge that stainless steel is not only a better option than plastic for our planet but also for our bodies, but not many people know exactly why stainless steel is becoming a key material in all industries.
Strong, impact resistant, 100% reusable and 100% recyclable, stainless steel is one of the best-performing and most practical choices for long-life products.
But, what actually makes stainless steel sustainable?
As well as iron, stainless steel contains raw materials like chromium and nickel that are highly valuable which makes recycling stainless steel economically viable and desirable. Stainless steel is actively recycled on a very large scale around the world by recyclers who collect and process recycled stainless steel for re-melting all around the world.
