Time to ban the can (Day 136)…

Is anything that comes in a can good for you? I’m talking beverages here, like Coke, Sprite, Mountain Dew, Red Bull and so on. I can’t think of a single canned liquid that has any nutritional value whatsoever, but that’s just one reason why I’m banning them as of today — the other is that, while pop cans can be recycled, it’s always better to reduce, and with my trusty water bottle on me at all times, there’s really no reason to indulge in anything other than Toronto’s finest.

Sometimes I’d get beer in cans, but now that I’m drinking local stuff it’s always in bottles. I like the occasional iced tea, but I can always make my own. And I’m sure I’ll get the occasional craving for a Brio or a Limonata, but otherwise I think this change will be pretty easy, and by the end of the year, my pancreas will surely thank me.

    Cutting out the canned beverages is a great step to take!

    just a note–wine and beer in cans/tetrapaks saves more in transportation costs/c02 savings than bottles…not as relevant locally, but worth noting…
