Recycled Cans and Sustainability
In today's world, where environmental concerns are at the forefront of global discussions, embracing sustainable practices is more critical than ever. One such practice is using recycled cans, which helps reduce our environmental impact and promotes sustainability.
In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of using recycled cans and how we at Boundless demonstrate sustainable packaging in our products.
Benefits of recycled cans
Here are some ways recycled cans help the environment:
- Waste reduction — By using recycled cans, we significantly reduce the amount of waste in landfills and incinerators. Instead of being discarded and taking up valuable space in landfills, recycled cans are repurposed into new products, extending their lifespan and reducing the need for raw materials.
- Conservation of natural resources — Recycling cans helps conserve valuable natural resources, such as aluminium and steel. When we recycle cans, we reduce the demand for virgin raw materials, which require extensive energy and resources for extraction and processing. By conserving these resources, we minimise the environmental impact of mining, deforestation and habitat destruction.
- Energy conservation — The production of cans from recycled materials consumes significantly less energy compared to manufacturing them from scratch. Recycling aluminium, for example, requires up to 95% less energy than producing aluminium from bauxite ore. Similarly, recycling steel saves around 60% of the energy needed for manufacturing new steel.
- Reduced greenhouse gas emissions — Recycling cans plays a crucial role in mitigating climate change. Manufacturing new cans from recycled materials emits fewer greenhouse gases than producing cans from raw materials. Recycling aluminium reduces emissions of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide, which contribute to global warming. By choosing recycled cans, we help combat climate change by lowering our carbon footprint.
- Water conservation — The production of cans from raw materials requires significant amounts of water for mining, refining and processing. By using recycled cans, we reduce the need for these water-intensive processes. Considering the increasing global water scarcity and the strain on freshwater ecosystems, water resource conservation is essential.
- Preservation of biodiversity — The extraction of raw materials for can production often involves the destruction of natural habitats, leading to biodiversity loss. By recycling cans, we contribute to the conservation of ecosystems, protecting plant and animal species and maintaining ecological balance.
- Promotion of circular economy — Using recycled cans is an integral part of the circular economy, where materials are kept in a continuous loop of use and recycling. By recycling cans, we support the concept of reducing waste, reusing materials and closing the resource loop. This shift towards a circular economy reduces reliance on finite resources and creates a more sustainable and resilient economic model.
Using recycled cans is a simple yet effective practice that individuals, businesses and communities can adopt to make a positive difference for the planet.
Boundless: a pioneering company in sustainability
In an era marked by growing environmental concerns, sustainability has become more critical than ever. We are increasingly aware of the impact our choices have on the planet, and it is crucial to find ways to minimise our ecological footprint. At the forefront of this movement is Boundless, a pioneering company dedicated to promoting a greener future through sustainable products and packaging.
Boundless stands out for its use of green hydrogen, a clean and renewable energy source. By harnessing the power of green hydrogen, we help reduce carbon emissions, significantly contributing to environmental preservation. What’s more, our commitment to sustainability doesn’t end there — it extends to our packaging as well.
At Boundless, our cans are 100% recyclable, which means they can be repurposed and contribute to a circular economy. By doing this, we are setting an example of how businesses can actively contribute to environmental preservation.
Another thing that sets us apart is our dedication to research and development. As a sustainability-driven company, our team is steadfast in its pursuit of innovation and product enhancement. We are deeply committed to incorporating eco-friendly practices into our technological advancements.
In fact, Boundless is proud to be the first company in Australia to create hydrogen water using molecular vibration, a purely physical method, rather than chemical electrolysis. This unique approach not only ensures that our hydrogen water is free from chemicals but also sets a new benchmark for sustainable beverage production.
