Tesco launch water in cans CanO water as part of £3 meal deal in a bid to help people avoid plastic

Found 6th Aug
I have often wondered why they sell water in bottles and not cans but now Tesco are the first supermarket to launch spring water in bottles called CanO water.

It is now part of their £3 lunchtime meal deal too in over 700 stores.
They are 500ml cans and with the news recently that over 66% of plastic food packaging is un-recyclable its a great idea in my book.

If you are worried that you won't be able to drink the whole lot in one go, it also has a reusable lid so like a bottle, you can seal it and save it for later.

Aluminium is infinitley recyclable and the makers say that in theory a can could be drank, recycled and back on the shelf as a brand new can in as little as 60 days - wow!

Not sure how a can you can use once and then recycle is better than a bottle you can use multiple times and then recycle.

It can be used more than once :-

"Resealable

On the run? Don't worry - No more throwing your can away when it's half full, simply reseal it and drink later. You can even refill your can

Fair enough, the original post didn't mention they were refillable, all depends how strong the resealable cap is.

Resealable isn't the same as refillable. If that cap is as flimsy as it looks it won't stay watertight for long unlike a bottle with a screwtop lid.
The thing that makes me scratch my head

Is why people can't organise a drink of water without buying something in a plastic bottle or can ?

Theres a nice video on their website - looks pretty sturdy tbh. I thought you weren't meant to reuse water bottles as it was bad for you with the chemicals / bacteria in them (I use my Evian ones all the time as I like the sports top thingy never without one only replace about every 6 weeks) I think I read somewhere too about reusing plastic bottles and exposing them to sunlight did something else to them as well.
I suppose being aluminum the cans would keep your drink cooler and you could put them through the dishwasher if you wanted?

Not many people like refilling with tap water either though.

Some people would say you’re part of the tin hat brigade for bringing up this kind of info or you’re paranoid because you’re shedding light that these plastic chemicals could cause cancer. I love this kind of info
The first deal I posted was for a water bottle
I have it here with me right now

Five years later

Get a grip people.

It'll be something else next week, butter was bad for you now is good. But health risks or not, plastic is awful for the environment, hate these pictures of exotic beaches covered in plastic, turtles dying with plastic ring pulls through there heads that have grown into their shells and stuff. I used to live in Oz in Cairns on the Barrier Reef and some of the islands there now are unrecognisable with the plastic washed up - very sad in such a short space of time something that's been there for thousands of years is ruined by us all.

it's the drive all the way to Buxton to fill it up that takes the time. I usually wait until I've got a few empty bottles

You are sort of right. It was Coca Cola and its water range: 'Dasani bottled water'

Coca Cola own Schweppes.

Yeah. Found the article and added it to my post. Seems there is a precedent for tap o water. I'm off to apply to dragon's den.

Would tend to agree though I lived in London and that stuff is rank
They had these cans one year at EGX for a drink called Tornado Energy. The lid worked surprisingly well and didn't leak at all.

I've got one of those water bottles with a filter and we have an American fridge with a filtered water dispenser too. Don't see the need to spend extra.

Yeah we are ruining this place. People are too embarrassed or lazy to even pick something up infront of them. I went up Snowdonia a few weeks ago and people were just walking past this empty bottle. It was doing my head, while we sat and ate our food I was watching to see how many people would walk past without picking it up before I picked it up myself. After about 30 people went by this wise lady picked it and out it in her rucksack. Snowdon is such a lovely mountain and it’s a display of what the country would look like without humans lol. Maybe I need to get out the city and into the countryside away from messy masses

This made me think today about what I’ve done and maybe I need to do a little again. It’s a good Monday thought for yourself to think about
Op, have you seen how much wildlife is killed on the roads every day? This is my gripe with us human lot, nobody ever brings this up because we are a selfish bigoted lot who need to get us or items around the earth.

The plastic thing is a bit insignificant, personally we always reuse our water bottles for at least a year or two. Educate people to reuse plastic.

Out there is a harsh world for animals. Especially if you bring the food industry into consideration.

Canned water is as good for the environment as electric vehicles (minimal benefit at an inflated prices)

PLEASE don't ask that......if he's vegan he's gonna get angry and find out where you live
I spotted the other day that Snapple now comes in plastic bottles rather than glass. They even highlight this on the label, saying something like 'NOW IN A PLASTIC BOTTLE!' like it's a good thing. Talk about being on the wrong side of history...
