Why Buy Canned Water?

A Step Towards a Plastic-Free Future with Each Resealable Can

Like you, more and more people are now becoming aware of the many problems disposable single-use plastic bottles pose to our environment. With millions of these water bottles used each day, the seriousness and scale of the issue is immense.

What’s worse, plastic water bottles are really convenient. Here you can learn how our small resealable aluminum cans are able to help tackle such a big challenge, as well as why you should buy canned water.

How We Give Back

We’ve partnered with Mind Your Plastic, formerly Plastic Oceans Canada in a commitment to offset plastic pollution in our oceans. We donate a portion of every purchase directly to the organization, which helps fund their initiatives in coastline clean-up, educational outreach, and in advocating for corporate and public policy change. We all face the problem of plastic pollution together, so let’s work together for a cleaner future.

You can be part of the solution by visiting their website to learn more and contribute to the health of our waterways in Canada and around the world.

The Problem with Plastic Water Bottles

Hundreds of billions of plastic bottles are thrown away a year, making them among the most frequently thrown away objects on Earth. These bottles, the majority of which are never recycled, litter nearly every corner of our planet and, worst of all, do not biodegrade. Even after hundreds of years, these bottles break down into ever-smaller microplastics and continue to damage the environment.

Despite these sad facts, and the recent move to ban single-use plastics in many countries, busy people on the go still need a convenient and healthy way to hydrate when the tap isn't an option. That's where aluminum cans like ours, which are infinitely recyclable, come in as the perfect alternative!

Why Aluminum?
Same Function, New Form

Our resealable lid offers the same easily accessible, convenient portability that drew the health-conscious to buy bottled water in the past. No sacrifice necessary!

Infinitely Recyclable

Unlike plastic, which can only be recycled a few times (if it makes it to the recycling facility at all), the aluminum in our cans does not degrade over time and can continue to be used to make new cans forever.

Easier to Recycle

Unfortunately, most single-use plastic bottles never make it to the recycling plant at all. Even those that do still require additional sorting, separating, and significant energy to break down for reuse. Aluminum, on the other hand, has a much simpler recycling process, which also uses less energy to boot.

recycling a can only takes 5% of its initial energy to be reproduced
cans go from the recycling bin to store shelves in as little as 60 days
75% of all the aluminum ever produced is still in use today
We Hate Greenwashing Too

That’s why we’re honest. If we’re talking impact, the tap is always best. But we also know that maintaining a perfect, zero-waste lifestyle isn’t easy, especially for those always on the go.

Now you know why you should buy canned water and the advantages associated with resealable aluminum cans. Though each can of Cycle Water does make a positive difference compared to plastic, our goal is also to inspire and inform, so that we can all come together to make the changes we need to enable a sustainable, plastic-free future.
