Let me tell you a little more about why a stainless steel food container is a perfect reusable container:
Stainless Steel is recyclable and effectively recycled. That may sound obvious, but the fact is that plastic is recyclable, but NOT always effectively recycled. There are 7 different number classifications for plastic and every geographic area recycles different numbers, yes to some, no to others. Not all plastic recycling is profitable enough to be done with gusto! Stainless steel recycling is profitable and there is just one kind of steel, so the process is done more consistently and effectively.
Stainless Steel is durable. It will keep your sandwich or fruit or chips from getting smooshed in your bag, you can drop it, step on it, whatever - and it can take it! This is big deal because your container will last and last, it is not a single-use or short-term disposable item. Although Stainless Steel if effectively recycled, it is best if it is used indefinitely and never goes back into the recycling pool. The hope is that when you are done with your Stainless Steel container you pass it on to someone else who gets a lifetime of use out of it as well. Products that are durable and built to last are as green as it gets.
Stainless Steel is lightweight; this might be a surprise to some of you who do not currently own any stainless steel products. You will not notice a difference between a stainless steel and plastic container, they are about the same weight, so do not worry about sending your child to school with a stainless steel container in their lunch, they will not have to drag their backpacks to and from school.
Stainless Steel does not leach like plastic and aluminum have been accused of. Stainless Steel is what is used in the medical industry because it is considered ultra safe.
Stainless Steel is dishwasher safe; you will see this is a re-occurring benefit of many of the items GreenPartySupply.com sells, because it is a deal-breaker for many if it can not go in the dishwasher!
