Reynolds 100% Recycled Aluminum

Most everyone should know that aluminum is 100% recyclable. Producing "new" aluminum from old aluminum uses significantly less energy, 80% less. Reynolds has aluminum foil from 100% recycled aluminum ... in a totally recyclable package.

" ... Reynolds Wrap® Foil from 100% Recycled Aluminum ... made from a mix of pre and post consumer aluminum ... packaging and core are made from 100% recovered paper and the inks used on the product packaging are water-based."

"... as clean and safe to use with food as ... virgin, aluminum. ... requires heating the metal to more than 1200°F, which burns off any debris in the metal. ...sent through a filtration process, poured and rolled into thin sheets ..."

Used aluminum foil is not as easy to recycle as aluminum cans ... to find a recycling location near you check www.earth911.org >>> LINK
