Most plastics are only downcycled, with their eventual resting place being a landfill. Not so for tin packaging made from steel. In fact, steel recycles indefinitely, without loss of quality, just like Pepsi's aluminum beverage cans, but with the advantage of magnetic separation from other waste headed to the landfill.
Pepsi is committed to consumer education. "Education remains a key priority for us, but we know we need to go a step further and make it easier and more accessible for people to recycle as well. So we’re continuing to expand strong educational programs while also focusing on some new initiatives," said Mooadian.
Tin-plated steel cans have been around for decades, preserving and protecting food items. The green story of of the steel can has never had to change. With easy curbside recyclability, there are no special instructions for consumers in all parts of the country. Every can contains some recycled content - up to 60%!
