Canned foods are the most tamper-resistant food packaging option available today.
Steel framing contains more than 28 percent recycled steel and is completely recyclable.
For every ton of steel recycled, 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone are conserved.
More than 1,500 food items come in steel cans.
In 2006, the steel industry recycled enough steel from old cars to produce nearly 13.5million new ones.
