50 Actions for 50 Years #7

Action 7 – Choose Aluminum or Cardboard Packaging

When you buy packaged goods …… choose items packaged in aluminum or cardboard rather than plastic, if possible.

Cardboard is easily recyclable and also degrades more quickly if it ends up in the landfill. According to the Aluminum Association, nearly 75 percent of all aluminum produced in the United States is still in use today, and aluminum can be recycled over and over again.
