What’s even better than recycling metal cans? Reducing our consumption of them! Even though metal cans are wonderfully recyclable, it is better for our health and the environment to buy fresh food whenever possible. Did you know that some metal cans are lined with BPA or other toxic plastics? These toxics can leach into the food product causing adverse health effects such as endocrine disruption. Remember, REDUCE comes BEFORE reuse and recycle!
