It takes only 5% energy to produce recycled aluminum foil compared with regular aluminum foil. The energy equivalent of 1 gallon of fuel produces 2.78 lbs virgin aluminum, while only 0.05 gallons is required to produce 2.78 lbs recycled aluminum. Expressed in terms of rolls of aluminum foil, 1.39 cups of fuel produces one roll of traditional foil, while only 0.07 cups is used for each If You Care roll. And these energy savings don’t even take into account the financial and environmental benefits of lower transportation weights and fuel costs.
This is a little scary but true information provided by If You Care, a maker of some very eco-friendly and very cool products to help you around the house. Other than aluminum foil, they have baking sheets, cupcake cups, baking twine, the works!
They do have these products at the Whole Foods, but if you want to buy them online visit HERE.
