Instructions

Metal can should be "mostly clean." Quickly rinse or wipe out food before putting in the bin.

Alternatives

Buy fresh and from the bulk section using a reusable bag or container instead.

Facts

Metal cans (e.g. soup, beans) are usually made of steel and tin. Mining is associated with a number of environmental and social concerns, but metal can be continuously recycled so the need for more raw material can and should be minimized, such as by increasing recycling.
