No Glass for Greenville

Andrew  |  March 18

Starting April 1st, 2016 Greenville County (along with the city of Greenville) will stop recycling glass. This creates a dilemma as much of the beer consumed in today’s market still resides in glass bottles. If you have not considered canned beer in the past, please consider canned beer moving forward. We chose to can our core beers for not only their impact on the environment, but also for their ability to preserve the flavor of our beer. We ask you to find out for yourself.
Aluminum cans are the most sustainable beverage package on virtually every measure. Cans have a higher recycling rate and more recycled content than other package type. They are lightweight, stackable, strong, allowing brands to package and transport more beverages using less material. Aluminum cans are far more valuable than glass or plastic, helping make municipal recycling programs financially viable and effectively subsidizing the recycling of less valuable materials in the bin.
While the aluminum beverage can is by far the most recycled and recyclable beverage container on the market today, more can be done to increase can recycling in the United States. Each year nearly 40 billion cans – $800 million worth of aluminum – end up landfills, a major loss to the economy and the environment. Making a can from recycled aluminum saves 92 percent of the energy required to make a new can. – See more at: http://www.aluminum.org/aluminum-can-advantage#sthash.h4VTB9x2.dpuf
