Is stainless steel sustainable?

How sustainable is stainless steel?
 
Why do we only sell stainless steel products?
 
Because stainless steel is one of the most sustainable, safe, reusable everyday material. I've got some facts for you all :)
 
Stainless steel is made from a mixture of other metals which often uses scrap metal as its primary raw material, with up to 70% of the product coming from recycled material.
 
Stainless steel is theoretically 100% recyclable. Even rusted metal or rusted stainless steel (happens on low-grade stainless steel) are recyclable.
 
Painted SS can be recycled but not easily. PVD coating (Often they are rainbow, gold, rose gold and black colour) SS is recyclable as is.
 
The more that is recycled, the less of those elements that need to be mined which means less environmental damage associated with mining operations, not to mention the major energy savings in recycling. Stainless steel can be recycled without any degradation – this means products made from 100% recycled stainless steel are viable.
 
Stainless steel does not leach any nasty chemicals when temperatures change, does not need any coating like aluminum when touching acidic food or drinks.
Stainless steel is easily sterilized, and lasts forever when cared properly.
Unlike plastic or glass products stainless steel products are often repairable. Mr. Ninja is a stainless steel fabricator. So we do repair clips on our lunchboxes or sock hangers for free. (if anything bad happens!)
 
As we all know recycling plastic is not an answer. Tempered glass is not recyclable, nor broken glass in nz.
 
To me, stainless steel products are the most sensible choice. Ideally naked stainless steel or PVD coating only.
When it comes to the end of life (ie; SS parts came off from other products, broken pegs etc) please collect them to take to local scrap metal dealers or metal fabricators.💜🌏🌳🌈

Fab-tastic Products & Service

I had already had a friend rave to me about Bento Ninja & used the in-cup tea strainer, which are so good - no more leaky bits of tea escaping into the cup and I can stick any of my garden herbs in there for a great cup of tea!
The peg rack and pegs are wonderful. Yes, they're pricey compared to pastic but the feel good factor of not finding plastic pegs blown around in my garden & having them snap on me mid-peg is well worth it. Also knowing that my washing stays on the line in these surprisingly windy spring days.
The rainbow pegs and cups are so pretty, they make great christmas presents for my eco friendly family members :-)
Best of all is the service and care to attention in the packaging. Not a shred of plastic anywhere, even the tape on the box was paper - so the box goes straight onto the garden as mulch.
The planet will thank you for making this investment!

Great!

It's a great tool to have at home - useful and will be used a lot for socks, masks and reusable pads. We'll made.

Bought the large one at first and then decided that we needed the medium one too. It’s a great size for leftovers, or storing prepped veg. Love these
