At Everusely, we strive to ensure the products we create are of the highest quality so they don’t need to be replaced, are made from materials that are healthy for you and your family, and are able to be composted or recycled at the end of their life. That’s why we use these five major materials for almost all our products.
Metal, as well as being 100% recyclable, is also an incredibly durable material. It can last hundreds of years if looked after properly. It is also very easy to repurpose metal containers and tins. At Everusely, we use food grade FDA approved stainless steel. To ensure the stainless steel you use in your home is food grade and won’t rust, make sure it’s labelled 304 or 18/8!
Silicone is an eco-friendly material made from sand. It is a better option to plastic because manufacturing silicone is far less wasteful, it can be recycled (in the right facilities) and it is non-toxic. That means it’s safe for you and the environment. Everusely silicone is the highest food-grade silicone available. It is both FDA and LFGB approved, and is perfectly safe to use in the microwave or oven.
Glass, like metal, is also 100% recyclable. This means that it can be infinitely recycled into new products without loss of quality. It is also very easy to repurpose a glass container! Glass is also inert, which means it doesn’t react with anything. It is entirely safe to use with all food products.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, making it the number one renewable resource. Bamboo actually grows faster when it is cut down! We also use other “growables” like cotton and coconut fibre for some of our products. These have the added benefit of being able to be composted.
Paperboard is made from recycled paper pulp. When manufactured and disposed of properly, it is largely considered a renewable resource. Plus you can compost this material in your backyard compost bin. It will help you keep the balance of carbon (from paper and cardboard) and nitrogen (from food scraps).
We carefully consider the environmental impact of each product we produce, all the way from manufacturing, to transportation to what will happen to it at the end of its life.
If you have any questions about how to recycle any of your Everusely products, please contact us and we will help you find the best way to dispose of it.
