Stainless Steel Cutlery Set
Product Eco Rating
Stainless Steel is incredibly durable and completely, infinitely recyclable, which makes this cutlery set eco-friendly as each item is 100% Stainless Steel.
Now days, Stainless Steel products are made with up to 70% recycled materials, which reduces waste ending up in landfill. Using recycled scrap metal to produce new Stainless Steel products also reduces the resources and energy required during the production process as less of the product comes from newly mined materials.
Stainless 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, it has anti-corrosive and doesn’t have toxic run-offs.
Sustainability of Stainless Steel Cutlery
Scrap metal is used as the main raw material to produce Stainless Steel, which is an extremely durable and long lasting material that’s 100% recyclable.
Products made from Stainless Steel are easily and often recycled, although even if they are not disposed of correctly and don’t end up in Landfill, Stainless Steel still won’t have a harmful impact on the soil or water that it touches due to corrosion-free layer around the steel, which further increases the sustainability and eco friendliness of Stainless Steel.
Due to the stainless finish, toxins are not released when Stainless Steel products come into contact with other elements, like food when eating with this cutlery set, water when cleaning or toxins running-off the product and into the environment if incorrectly disposed of.
Producing new Stainless 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 Stainless 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 Stainless Steel that’s produced is from about 70% recycled materials, which heavily further reduces the harm from the manufacturing process.
