aerosol products consumer products – Aerosol Packaging is More Environmentally Friendly than Most Realize

* The aerosol industry removed chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) from aerosol products in the 1970s. Today, no aerosol products contain CFCs — which scientists believe could harm the ozone layer.
* Steel aerosol cans contain an average of 25-33 percent recycled material. If the more than 3.6 billion aerosol products sold annually were all recycled when empty, that would produce enough steel for more than 160,000 automobiles. Most recycling programs today accept empty aerosol cans along with other recyclable packaging.
* Aerosol products reduce waste through their long product shelf life and minimum spillage.
