Alcoa Canada employees are highlighting the energy savings achieved through recycling with their own Aluminum Holiday Tree!
Alcoa Canada Global Primary Products, Alcoa Foundation and their partner Sustainable House today unveiled their first holiday can tree.
This tree, which is made of 700 reused aluminum cans, was built by a group of Canadian high school students. The activity was a great opportunity for them to find out more about the importance of recycling aluminum. The tree will be visible in the House’s atrium until December 20th, after which time the cans will be recycled.
“This tree is a unique way to reuse aluminum over the holidays”, said Lysane Martel, Director, Communications and Public Affairs, Alcoa Canada Global Primary Products, and Alcoa Foundation Director in Canada. “It puts forth creativity while reminding everyone how sustainable aluminum is as it can be almost infinitely recycled”.
