Purchasing Recycled Products to Complete the Recycling Loop

There’s more to recycling than just recycling your used plastic bottles. To help complete the recycling loop, it’s also important to buy products made or manufactured with recycled content. These products can be identified with labels such as “made with recycled content,” “made with recycled plastic,” or “postconsumer content.”

Purchasing recycled products preserves natural resources, saves energy, and creates jobs. So, on your next shopping trip, look for products with recycled content and keep plastics in the recycling loop. Who knows? You may be purchasing a product made from a used plastic container that you chose to recycle!
