Aerosols & The Environment
MANY YEARS AGO, scientists raised concern that the ozone layer
which surrounds the earth and protects us from harmful UVA
(ultraviolet radiation) was thinning. One of the sources
suspected of causing damage to the ozone layer in the past was
CFC’s (chlorofluorocarbons) that were used in aerosols, various
cooling systems and other industrial processes.
We at K-G Packaging are also deeply concerned about the environment and are committed to the intelligent use and reuse of its resources.
TODAY, NONE of our products contain CFC’s or other harmful,
ozone depleting chemicals…and haven’t for over 20 YEARS.
All of our aerosol products are made from tin-plated steel or
aluminum that can be recycled either through many of the local
recycling programs or where recycling facilities
K-G Packaging is committed to reducing and eliminating the
amount of VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) or the chemicals
that can contribute to atmospheric smog that are in aerosol
products. Our Research and Development teams are working with
all government agencies such as Environment Canada and MPI in
order to meet as well as exceed the future imposed limits of
VOC’s in aerosol products TODAY. You can rest assured that our
Research and Development team will be on the for-front when it
comes to providing more environmentally friendly products for
K-G Packaging is committed to saving our planet
by reducing the effect of global warming through manufacturing products that do not
contribute to green house gas emissions as set out by Kyoto Treaty.
