1. Aluminum drives the entire recycling economy. Recycled aluminum is worth about 4x more than plastic, and 1000x more than glass. Local recycling programs simply wouldn’t exist without the money they make from recycled aluminum.
2. Aluminum can be infinitely recycled. A piece of aluminum can be turned into a product and then melted down to become something else an unlimited number of times. The same aluminum that holds your soap today could be a a new car door tomorrow, or the wing of an airplane in 10 years. Compare that to plastic where even if it get’s recycled (and that’s a big if) it can only do so 1 or 2 times before it becomes just another piece of trash that pollutes the earth for the rest of time.
3. Aluminum makes up just 1% of trash in the United States. Despite 65 billion aluminum cans being used every year, we do a pretty decent job of keeping them out of landfills and out of the ocean. It doesn’t matter if it can be recycled, what matters is how consumers behave. Right now about 63% of consumer aluminum gets recycled. Compared to plastic (29%) and glass (26%) it means that aluminum is the clear sustainable choice. Don’t get us wrong though, there’s lots of room for improvement here and we’re committed to using our brand to support that.
