I came across a very interesting use for aluminum bottles – packaging of fruit juices.
Planet Fuel is an innovative company based in Connecticut that makes “low-sugar, organic juices for kids with no preservatives, additives or refined sugars”. It uses aluminum bottles since it considers it as “one of the most environmentally friendly containers available. With each recycled can, you save enough energy to run a TV for 3 hours!”
There’s a clear trend towards environmentally-friendly packaging and aluminum fits the bill in many ways. Planet Fuel is another company that is strengthening the case for the use of aluminum bottles.
I’ve started to notice more aluminum bottles in freezer cases in supermarkets and I look forward to seeing a Planet Fuel juice bottle soon.
