An Aluminum Can's Life

Jan 14, 2014

Did you know that the soda can you had at lunch could be the same can you drink out of a few months from now?  An aluminum can’s life-(re)cycle is an average of 60 days long! Aluminum cans are also the worlds most recycled beverage container, making it even more possible that you are using at least a part of your can over again. According to the energy that was saved from recycling cans in 2011 is the equivalent of 17 million barrels of crude oil. What an awesome way to help the environment, reduce oil usage and here in Oregon we get paid to return cans. Sounds like a win all around!
