Aluminum saves fuel
Two lbs. of aluminum goes a long way, creating more than 300 ft. of household aluminum foil. Therefore, when you use aluminum foil, you are using a product that saves large quantities of transport energy, due to the lightness of the material.
Where does it come from?
Aluminum is available in the earth's crust in many parts of the world as the mineral bauxite. The deposits are mostly found in shallow layers of the earth. If You Care Aluminum Foil has the added benefit of being 100% recycled.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This foil is so thin. It rips easily so you need to use extra. I will not buy it again.
As far as I am concerned, purchase of this product was a complete waste of money. The foil is so thin that it is even hard to tear off the roll without tearing it. Maybe it is because it is made from recycled aluminum that it is so thin. It resembles the old tinfoil that used to be very common to wrap gum and some chocolate bars. There is no way I would ever buy another roll of this item. I just use aluminum foil to line drip pans in the oven, but this use for this product is not very satisfactory.
