Want to save a 132 Eiffel Towers?

Want to save 132 Eiffel Towers for the planet?

One of the worst problems for our planet is the use of canned foods! To stop the food tasting of tin and to halt corrosion the inside of it is lined with a suspected chemical Bisphenol A! It is an endocrine disrupter and Friends of the Earth has been trying to stop its use.

 

Even worse, there is no law to make manufacturers declare that it is used in their tins. So to be on the safe side, cut back on tinned products to reduce intake of processed food. Recycle any cans you do use.

 

The amount of steel retrieved from cans in Europe each year is said to be the equivalent of 132 Eiffel Towers, or 4000 jumbo jets!
