Just like gold, steel can be recycled endlessly. A nice example of that you can find in Krakow (Poland).
ArcelorMittal Poland recycled the steel from old stoves sent in by residents, producing 350 bicycle racks from the scrapped steel for the city. Residents who gave up their old, polluting stoves received a bonus from the company and contributed to “tomorrow without smog”, a programme for cleaner air in Krakow.
Not only will the environment benefit from the old stoves being replaced, the aim is also to encourage cycling in Krakow, further benefiting air quality in the city.
Top initiative from our Polish colleagues!
