1000 Flowers for the Planet - #641 Use a Manual Can Opener
Two good reasons to use a manual can opener: 1) they are made from metal, not plastic, which is great for keeping plastic out of our environment and 2) they don’t use any electricity. Both reasons reduce the requirement for fossil fuels. A manual can opener is actually quicker and easier to use than an electric one. Having a metal, manual can opener in the drawer may come in very handy if the ring-pull breaks when you’re tying to open a can. It will probably last your lifetime too.
