How Eco-Friendly Is Silicone?

Although silicone is more eco-friendly than generic plastics because it doesn’t leach toxic chemicals, it is not as eco-friendly as material like glass or stainless steel that can be recycled endlessly. Silicone can only be recycled a limited amount of times, and loses its quality when recycled, just like plastic. Silicone also doesn’t biodegrade like wood and paper products.
