The Problem

The Problem:

Single-use 1 lb. Propane Cylinders

  • Single-use cylinders are expensive when you realize that 80% of the price you pay is for the packaging! In short, you’re paying more for the packaging than for the actual gas!

  • Every year in North America, 40 million single-use 1 lb. propane cylinders are used, with over four million in California alone.* Because of limited, expensive recycling options, the empty cylinders are often disposed of improperly in landfills, dumpsters, household trash, campsites, on the roadside or in recycling containers.

cylinder production data and population data.

The Solution

The Solution:

Reusable 1 lb. Propane Cylinders

  • Reusable cylinders save money over time. Consumers pay for the gas and filling service, not the container!

  • Due to their sturdy construction, reusable cylinders can last up to 10 years and can be refilled hundreds of times over.

  • Reusables reduce the impact on landfills and the environment by reducing the overall amount of cylinders in the waste stream.

While adapters and refill kits are sold in the U.S., we do not endorse refilling 1 lb. propane cylinders at home. Refilling is safest when done by a professional.
