Why We Choose Cans
For their ease of use, safety, convenience, light weight, durability, and ecologically friendly factor. All reasons in making them a favourite for beverages in homes across Canada. Curb-side and community recycling programs highlight the metal’s value in the recycling bin. The benefits of aluminum work in both directions—for you and us!
As a responsible citizen of Earth, we invite you to do your own research on the trail of recycling so you are fully aware of where things go after you drop them into your blue cart (recycling) and the item’s life cycle and lifespan.
Recycling & Sustainability
Across North America, companies are furthering their advantage through the use of aluminum, which is a 100% recyclable and sustainable metal. It is one of the only materials in the consumer and industrial waste stream, that pays for its own recycling. Aluminum cans return from the recycling bin to the store over and over again, in a true closed loop. Nearly 75 percent of all aluminum ever produced is still in use today!
Environmental & Economics
The sustainable nature of aluminum increases the size and economic impact of the entire industry. Recycling is a core business operation of the aluminum industry. In the United States and Canada alone, the industry recycles more than 5 million tons of aluminum each year! Most of which, goes back directly into the North American supply. Because producing recycled aluminum is 92 percent more energy efficient than making new aluminum, the practice is both a business and environmental win.
