Recyclable Plastics Cheat Sheet
As we strive to be good stewards of Earth according to God’s original charge in the Garden of Eden, one way we can care for our planet is to make informed decisions about what products to buy based on their ability to be recycled.
While many shoppers buy based on price, availability, or personal preference, more and more people are choosing to purchase based on the little number at the bottom of a container.
Recycling numbers are often ignored or missed all together; however, knowing the meaning of each number empowers shoppers to make choices that can benefit our beautiful planet where we live.
For an easy-to-follow guide for the numbers on recyclables, print our free recyclable plastics cheat sheet and keep it above your recycling bin or near your shopping list for a quick reminder.
Note: While some plastics are intrinsically better for Earth than others, be sure to check your municipality's website to find out your local recycling rules and options.
