Add-on Cowboy Grill Grate
Product Eco Rating
Steel is incredibly durable and completely, infinitely recyclable.
Now days, Steel products are made with up to 70% recycled materials, which reduces waste ending up in landfill. Using recycled scrap metal to produce new Steel products also reduces the resources and energy required during the production process as less of the product comes from newly mined materials.
Steel as a material is very eco-friendly due to it’s durability, ability to be recycled, volume of recycled materials used to produce new products, next-to-no/low level of maintenance, and this Grill Grate has an anti-corrosive layer that prevents the leaching of toxins into your food or the environment if it’s not recycled.
Further information on the sustainability of Steel products
Scrap metal is used as the main raw material to produce Steel, which is an extremely durable and long lasting material that’s 100% recyclable.
Products made from Steel are easily and often recycled, and in the case of this fire place & grill, as it has a corrosion resistant layer around the outside of the Steel, if any part of it is not disposed of correctly and don’t end up in Landfill, it won’t have a harmful impact on the soil or water that it touches as the corrosion-free layer prevents leaching of toxins, which further increases the sustainability and eco friendliness of Stainless Steel.
Due to the corrosion free finish, toxins are not released into your food when cooking on the grill.
Producing new Steel items from non-recycled materials does require the mining of resources from the ground and then putting them through a heavy industrial process. Over the last 70 years or so, the process of manufacturing Steel has had a steady and impressive reduction in the energy required and harmful toxins released during the process. Now, it’s estimated that about 80% of all Steel that’s produced is from about 70% recycled materials, which heavily further reduces the harm from the manufacturing process.
