Why Steel?

Thanks to their inherent strength and magnetic qualities, products like Steel Party Cups are much easier for Material Recovery Facilities (MRF) to sort, resulting in the highest recycling rate of all food containers.

Steel By The Numbers

(2022 Can Manufacturers Institute)

  • Steel makes food cans the #1 most recycled food package in the U.S. That's why we introduced the steel disposable party cup, which allows you to chill guilt-free at your next party. Let's make Steel Chill-Cups the most recycled disposable cup.
  • 100% of the Steel Chill-Cup™ is recyclable
  • Steel is infinitely recyclable. As a result, 75% of all steel ever produced is still in use today
  • Recycling 1 ton of steel cans conserves 2,500 lbs. of iron ore, 1,400 lbs. of coal and 120 lbs. of lime stone
  • New steel produced with recycled cans reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 75%
