NERC Guest Blog - CAN IT! Reducing Food Waste with Steel Food Containers

Thank you to the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) for allowing us to guest blog for them and discuss the important issue of food waste reduction.

Here is an excerpt:

Food packaged in steel cans continues to be an American favorite, with over 100 million steel food cans used a day, and one of the primary reasons is their long shelf life. The canning process locks in nutrients at their peak of freshness, and canned foods are ready to eat when you are.
