Considered one of the planet’s most reusable resources, copper is a malleable, ductile and reddish-orange metal commonly associated with coins and electrical wires.
It’s versatility, strength, durability and many other appealing characteristics are what make it the third most consumed industrial metal in the world. Furthermore, copper is a mineral that stimulates the immune system so the absorption of small quantities of copper into the body is essential for human health.
In order to make products using copper, the metal is extracted from natural rocks (ores) in volcanic regions, usually through the process of mining, and then it undergoes smelting so it can be moulded into shape.
The fact that it can be recycled infinitely without reducing its performance is one of the reasons why we use it to make reusable bottles and homeware.
