Stainless steel is known for its corrosion resisting properties but it also has many “green” aspects which unlike other metals doesn’t impact the environment negatively.
The Environmental Benefits of Stainless Steel
In this blog we discuss three positive facts about stainless steel.
1. Stainless Steel is 100% Recyclable
It can be recycled over and over into a new stainless steel or into other products. Recycling stainless steel takes less energy than mining ore from the earth to make new metal, so it’s better for the environment as well as our pockets.
2. Stainless Steel is Non-Toxic
Stainless steel is non-toxic, meaning it does not leach any chemicals into food and drinks. This makes it perfect for storing food items, whether you’re using it in the kitchen or on the go. Water bottles in stainless steel have become very popular due to this aspect but also because it retains the temperature of the liquid being stored whether hot or cold.
3. Stainless Steel is Long Lasting
If stainless steel is maintained correctly and the chromium oxide passive layer is kept intact through normal use, it can last you a lifetime.
