RECYCLED FOIL USES 95% LESS ENERGY TO MAKE
If you can't bear to be without aluminum foil, this is your best option because it is made with 100% recycled aluminum. While traditional foil manufacturing is a power-intensive process, 95% less energy was used to produce this foil. Since there is no need to mine, the production creates less waste, while reusing a precious resource.
WHAT DOES IT REPLACE?
- 100% recycled aluminum. (The embodied energy in the extraction of aluminum is high. By using recycled materials, production requires 95% less energy to produce.)
- You cannot tell the difference between virgin and recycled aluminum.
- You can reuse it! Fun fact: it's dishwasher safe!
- It's recyclable*—again! Just wash it as best you can.
- Protects food against light, oxygen, humidity and bacteria. It is not recommended for use with acidic or fatty foods.
- Made in Italy
Non-recycled aluminum foil.
The goal here is to use aluminum foil sparingly because it's so resource intensive and takes about 400 years to break down. The worst is using it to store food, one because it's not good to keep your food in it, and two because most folks end up throwing out the food with the aluminum foil. Try glass storage containers to store your left overs, use glass or stainless or parchment paper in the oven, and instead of wrapping your food on the grill choose from a variety of grill accessories that won't let the veggies escape. When you do use it, use 100% recycled, and then wash it (or it put it in the dishwasher), reuse it or recycle it.
