NO PLASTIC. NO PROBLEM.
Tossing away an aluminum can wastes as much energy as pouring out half of that can's volume of gasoline.
When plastic is recycled only 20% of it can be re-used. This means the remaining plastic ends up in landfills and our oceans.
After being recycled, aluminum is repurposed within 60 days.
There is no limit to the number of times you can recycle aluminum.
Closed loop recycling means that aluminum cans contain 70% recycled content, more than 3X the amount of glass or plastic bottles.
Aluminum makes up less than 1% of waste in the US.
You can make 20 new aluminum bottles from recycled material using the same amount of energy that it takes to make 1 brand new plastic bottle.
Whoa! Think about that! The product in your hand has lived a whole other life!
Recycling one aluminum container saves enough energy to run a television for nearly two hours (per unit). That is a lot of TV!
