We at The Whiskey Ice Co.® are committed to designing and manufacturing in the USA. We are also committed to the environment, which is why we source scrap aluminum from the USA, also known as "Upcycling", to use in manufacturing. Checkout this great article onIntercongreen.com about Upcycling vs. Recycling. Our other manufactured products use recycled metals whenever possible, including a minimum of 60% recycled stainless steel, and we use scrap copper for copper-plated products.
Besides upcycling and using recycled metals, we also use post-consumer recycled packaging materials in all of our shipping and printing. All of this and we still offer the best price for a complete ice ball maker set in the world, while still offering our unmatched limited, lifetime warranty.
Why do we care so much about where the aluminum comes from?
Because every year, aluminum scrap is discarded and ends up in our landfills to stay there for a lifetime. By re-purposing aluminum scrap (a.k.a. Upcycling), we are removing waste aluminum piece by piece and converting it into something new and useable, and you can feel good about your Spherical Ice Ball Maker knowing that you too are doing your part to help the world be a little greener.
