Why do we encourage can recycling?
The recycling of aluminum cans is encouraged due to its environmental and economic advantages. Aluminum cans, widely used for beverages, are 100% recyclable without any loss in quality. The recycling process requires 95% less energy compared to producing new cans, contributing to material circularity and conserving resources and energy. Aluminum is infinitely recyclable, and over 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use.
