Coors Brewery announces environmentally friendly changes

Coors Brewery, located in Golden, Colorado and is the nation's largest brewery, made a huge announcement Monday: it has achieved landfill-free status.

A report from NBC News says landfill-free status means that the 135 tons of waste generated by Coors Brewery will be either recycled or reused. Used grains can actually be fed to livestock, and other materials like glass and paper will be recycled. Other trash like paper towels will be burned to generate energy in Oklahoma.

The brewery spent about $1-million to make the more environmentally friendly changes and is the fifth out of eight of the company's breweries to make such changes.
