How sustainable is stainless steel?

Wie nachhaltig ist Edelstahl?

If sustainability is important to you, FLSK is the right place for you. Our company is committed to operating as sustainably as possible. We want to protect our environment and conserve valuable resources!

This also includes the use of stainless steel in production. Our products are mostly made of stainless steel because this material is of the highest quality and sustainable. We'll show you why this is the case here.

The production: With a lot of energy for a long service life.

Before we can shape it into a beautiful FLSK product, the stainless steel must first be made. Blast furnaces melt iron ore into steel at temperatures above 1000 degrees. It is then elaborately refined with other materials such as chrome or nickel. Of course, this costs a lot of energy.

On the other hand, stainless steel makes objects robust and durable. One could say without much exaggeration: stainless steel products such as the FLSK stainless steel drinking bottle , the muki snack pot and the CUP coffee cup to go are made to last. Unlike disposable products, which are often only used for a few minutes, the energy used to produce them is “worth it”.

Recyclability? Top!

Most plastics are not recyclable. This means: A yogurt cup must be made from newly obtained plastic. And once the service life has expired, the raw materials used are lost. Melting down plastic to make new yogurt cups is not possible. That's why we love stainless steel! You can melt it down again and again - completely without loss. Isn't that great?

Sustainable consumption – what is it?

With our stainless steel products you are making a good, sustainable decision. But there is another aspect that is often ignored when it comes to sustainability: “Sustainable consumption”, which is a contradiction in terms. Because consuming sustainably means, first and foremost, consuming less. Environmentally conscious shopping enthusiasts may not like this and our sales department may not like it either... However, the following also applies to FLSK products:

  • Buy less.

  • Buy consciously.

  • Only buy what you really need and use.

The stainless - all natural Series:

In order to emphasize the sustainability of stainless steel again, we have launched our stainless - all natural series. The series redefines environmental friendliness. Made of high-quality stainless steel and packaged tree-free, it is a symbol of naturalness because it does not require any painting. It is also dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning easier and makes it a practical companion in everyday life.
