CanO Water was created in response to the damaging impact that plastic bottles have on the environment, after a trip to a remote island opened the eyes of three close friends.
With approximately 8 million tonnes of plastic ending up in the ocean each year, CanO Water is an infinitely recyclable alternative to plastic bottles. Recycle your can and it will be back on the shelf in as little as 6 weeks.
Why is aluminium better?
- Did you know that approximately 75% of all aluminium ever produced since 1888 is still in productive use? Some having been through countless loops of its life-cycle. Recycling aluminium uses only around 5% of the energy and emissions needed to make it from the raw material initially.
The average aluminium can is made from 68 percent total recycled content, the highest of any beverage container.
Cans provide long shelf life by protecting products inside from light, oxygen and other factors which can affect taste and even product safety.
Cans don't shatter and are among the lightest beverage packages to transport, reducing their environmental footprint.
Making cans from recycled metal takes 95 percent less energy and 95 percent less greenhouse gas emissions than using new metal.
The aluminium can is the only package that more than covers its recycling costs, helping to finance the collection and recycling of other materials such as glass and plastic.
