How sustainable is stainless steel?

Wie nachhaltig ist Edelstahl?

If sustainability is close to your heart, you're in the right place at FLSK. Our company is dedicated to operating as sustainably as possible. We want to protect our environment and conserve valuable resources!

That also includes the use of stainless steel in production. Our products are mostly made of stainless steel because this material is exceptionally high-quality and sustainable. We show you why here.


Production: High energy input for a long lifespan.

Before we can shape a beautiful FLSK product from it, the stainless steel first needs to be produced. Blast furnaces melt iron ore into steel at temperatures above 1000 degrees. It is then refined with other materials such as chrome or nickel. This process naturally requires a lot of energy.

However, stainless steel makes objects robust and durable. Without exaggeration, one could say: Stainless steel products like the FLSK Stainless Steel Water Bottle and the FLSK Reusable Coffee Mug are made to last. Unlike disposable products, which are often used only for a few minutes, the energy consumption is justified for their production.


Recyclability? Excellent!

Most plastics cannot be recycled. This means a yogurt cup must be made from newly produced plastic, and once its lifecycle ends, the raw materials used are lost. You can't melt plastic to create new yogurt cups. That's why we love stainless steel! It can be melted down repeatedly without any loss. Isn't that amazing?


Sustainable consumption – what is it?

With our stainless steel products, you're making a good, sustainable choice. But there's another aspect that often gets overlooked in discussions about sustainability: "Sustainable consumption" is an oxymoron. To consume sustainably mainly means to consume less. This might not be appealing to environmentally conscious shopping enthusiasts or to our sales department... Nevertheless, the same applies to FLSK products:

  • Buy less.

  • Buy mindfully.

  • Only buy what you truly need and will use.


The stainless - all natural Series:

To emphasize the sustainability of stainless steel, we've launched our stainless - all natural Series. The Series redefines environmental friendliness. Made from high-quality stainless steel and packaged without paper, it's a symbol of nature because it doesn't require any coating. Plus, it's dishwasher safe, simplifying cleaning and making it a practical companion for everyday life.
