Did You Know?
Just because a manufacturer says "this bag is made from 100%
Recycled post-consumer plastic bottles" doesn't mean the ENTIRE
BAG is made from recycled material. A portion of the bag could
be made from something else.
The fact is that unless the product contains 100% recycled materials,
the label SHOULD tell you how much of the contents are recycled.
Not all manufacturers will give this to you.
What Does "Recycled" Really Mean?
When you compare, look for specific information. If a label says
"recycled," check how much of the product or package is recycled
and where the recycled material comes from.
"Post-consumer" material comes from previously used
business or consumer products, such as newspapers, shipping cartons,
plastic bottles, glass containers, and aluminum cans.
Post-Industrial or Pre-Consumer
"Post-Industrial" or "Pre-Consumer" material
is basically manufacturing waste. For example, an envelope manufacturer
might recycle the clippings leftover when envelopes are cut from
paper. These clippings could be made into other paper products
instead of being thrown away.
