Steel is 'green' for three reasons:
- IT IS 100% RECYCLABLE - All steel can be recycled. Products made of steel can be recycled to make new products again and again and again without any loss of quality.
- IT IS EASY TO RECOVER - Because steel is attracted to a magnet, it is easy to recover from household rubbish.
- IT IS ENERGY EFFICIENT - This means you use up less power making something from steel than if you made it from another metal. Making steel for a steel can, for example, uses about half the energy it takes to make aluminium for the same sized aluminium can. By saving this energy we save precious resources like coal, gas, oil and water.
