SUSTAINABILITY

Did you know that metal packaging can recycle forever? It is a permanent material and the perfect example of a circular economy at work!

 

Metals are natural elements that maintain their physical properties forever. Once metal enters the material-to-material loop, in which it is recycled again and again, it will always be available for future generations. This means metal is a permanent material.
