Here’s an interesting non-beverage application – a bug spray in an aluminum bottle that uses all natural ingredients.
BeatIt insect repellent uses lemon grass oil, lemon eucalyptus oil, mint oil, citronella, aloe vera and coconut oil. Some of these ingredients are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for effective protection against mosquitoes that may carry the West Nile virus.
It’s a winning combination – all natural, non-chemical ingredients packaged in an environmentally-friendly and recyclable aluminum bottle.
It’s not hard to imagine a lot of products on supermarket shelves – bleaches, laundry detergents, fabric softeners, cleaners – being repackaged in aluminum bottles. I think the green community could play a critical role in persuading the major manufacturers to switch.
