50,000 12-ounce aluminum cans were made in the time it took you to read this one sentence! That's an insane amount of soda cans, beer cans, ice tea cans, energy drink cans, juice cans, and so forth. Wouldn't it be a better environmental choice to lower the demand for all these cans and drink out of a reusable water bottle? When you think of how much energy it takes to manufacture all these cans and how many of these cans end up in the landfill or in the ocean or just as litter along a highway, doesn't it make you want to stop using single-use drinking containers?
There are so many opportunities to make more eco-friendly choices in our daily lives and the containers from which we drink and eat are a huge source of environmental consequence. It really is so easy to invest in a reusable drinking vessel. When we consider how many aluminum cans were made after reading this WHOLE BLOG POST, it really should give us all pause. Be part of the change you want to see!
As always, reduce, reuse, recycle. Small, everyday changes can make a big difference!
