It can be difficult to know if something is recyclable or not. And if an item is recyclable, it can be equally challenging to find the appropriate place to recycle that item. The folks over at GreenBlue
recognized how frustrating this situation can be and developed an innovative solution: the How2Recycle Label.
The How2Recycle Label
is a project of GreenBlue’s Sustainable Packaging Coalition
(SPC) that serves as a standardized labelling system that includes recycling instructions. SPC is working to have the How2Recycle Label appear on the majority of consumer goods packaging by 2016. While many companies already use the label, I am proud to announce that Hilex Poly has joined the program in an effort to support an increase in plastic bag and film recycling.
Many types of plastic bags and films can be returned to the grocery store for recycling. You may recall that our Bag-2-Bag recycling program
strives to make recycling convenient by placing collection bins at more than 30,000 locations in the United States and accepting multiple types of plastic film products
. All of us at Hilex are incredibly proud to join the many forward-thinking companies already using the How2Recycle Label.
