Aluminium (Al) is extracted from Bauxite ore, which is collected from the ground using open cut mining, being almost always found near the ground surface. turning Bauxite into Aluminium requires a lot of energy and has a variety of environmental impacts.
Aluminium cans are 100% recyclable and can be recycled back on shelves within 45 days.
What natural resource do you save when you recycle Aluminium tins?
Mining affects the plant and animal life immediately surrounding an area and beyond for multiple generations as trees and grasslands are clear-cut, creating biodiversity loss, habitat loss, carbon emissions, and erosion.
Once an aluminium can or piece of aluminium foil is made, it is infinitely recyclable without degradation of quality. Recycling aluminium cans uses just 5% of the energy used to produce new aluminium and generates just 5% of the amount of greenhouse gases. And with no further cost to environments.
Always, always recycle your aluminium cans!
