Glass Over Aluminum
The energy required to produce a single 12 oz aluminum can from virgin ore is enough to produce nearly two 12 oz glass bottles. So the next time you buy a 6-pack of beer opt for glass bottles over aluminum cans. The manufacturing energy conserved could power your television through two Sunday NFL games. If 10 % of beer drinkers replaced a 6-pack of cans with bottles, the energy saved could fly 30,000 Cowboy fans from Dallas to the Meadowlands to watch them take on the New York Giants.
