Stainless Steel is significantly better for the environment compared to Plastic.
Here's the deal with Stainless Steel.
Recycling & recycled content
Every country has a scheme that recycles stainless steel.
Returnr sources stainless steels with post-consumer recycled content of 75% to 85%
Why not 100% recycled content?
The demand for stainless steel is higher today than in the past. So, despite the high recapture rates for stainless steel, there is just not enough end of life stainless steel in the current pipeline to keep up with today’s production demands.
This is an excellent problem to have, and helps ensure that new stainless steel that goes into production today never ends up in landfill, even if you don’t try, it will be recycled in the future.
