Q: Are Beers Not Bombs™ bottle openers safe?
A: Although Peace Bronze starts with the copper cabling that was once used to connect the silos of the fearsome U.S. nuclear missile system, it has no radioactive qualities whatsoever, and never has had. Peace Bronze and all items we make from it have been tested and guaranteed safe by three separate sources: first by the U.S. Government during the painstaking disarmament process; second, by the Iowa metal recyclers we use; and third, by our own lab, where we test all materials for trace radioactivity with Geiger counters.
Peace Bronze is not only safe---thanks to its 95 percent copper content, it offers the health-giving properties of that metal. As a growing number of studies have shown, copper reduces inflammation. Moreover, copper possesses anti-bacterial qualities.
Q: How much material from the nuclear missile system is ACTUALLY in the Peace Bronze?
A: The copper we use comes from missile sites in both South Dakota and Nebraska. The copper is recycled for us in Spencer, Iowa. Peace Bronze contains 95% of this copper. The remaining material is a mixture of Maganese and Silicon, which makes it a 'Silicon Bronze' alloy, also known as Everdur.
