Bottle: Aluminum 250+, 150+ or 50+ ml pump
Believe it or not, these bottles are the most eco friendly packaging in 150+ ml (holds up to 175ml) or 50+ (holds up to 60 ml) ml sizes for lotions (things thicker than water or flower waters), or for unbreakable bottles in the bathroom or outdoors.
Why is this aluminum bottle an eco friendly packaging material?
* It's 100% recyclable and close to 100% recycled! Aluminum is very costly to produce new, but cheap to produce from scrap and recovered aluminum.
* It's lightweight and costs little to ship.
* It's the best packaging for essential and carrier oils because it is dark and cool.
* It's infinitely reusable, sterilize-able and refillable. Just wash it with hot soapy water, pumping the water through until it runs clear, then pump grain alcohol or vodka through to sterilize, and let dry thoroughly.
...just don't cook in it or put powdered aluminum in or on your body!
~ By contrast, only 2-5% of plastic is ever "recycled", and needs to be mixed with up to 50% new plastic material in order to make new material, so it's really more accurately described as down-cycled. Down-cycled plastic items cannot be recycled again, while aluminum is infinitely recyclable!
~ Recycling aluminum is 95% more energy efficient than producing aluminum from ore.
~ Recycling aluminum results in 95% less air pollution and 97% less water pollution than producing aluminum from ore.
Historically, aluminum has proven to be one of the most important materials in successful recycling programs. Aluminum offers high scrap value, widespread consumer acceptance, and aluminum recycling enjoys significant industry support.
Aluminum is recycled and reused over and over without losing any of its characteristics. There is no loss of quality in using recycled aluminum. The recycling of aluminum uses less energy and is far less expensive than producing new aluminum. During many of the manufacturing processes involving aluminum there is scrap generated. This is returned to the smelters or casting facilities and reused to make the raw material again. Compared to the initial four pounds of ore to produce one pound of aluminum, every pound of recycled aluminum saves four pounds of ore. Thus nearly 100% of aluminum is recycled.
The 150ml bottle is the second smallest/third largest in the photo. There are two styles of pump. The black works for thicker lotions, the white for medium bodied lotions and the gold for thinner ones. Please specify which you want in the comments with your order.
