Recycling — it can get a little confusing at times. Most people think that if a package has a little recycle symbol (the chasing arrows around a number) on it, that means that item can be recycled. Many people choose packages with that recycling symbol on it thinking they’re making a more sustainable choice.
Are you as shocked as I was to find out that little symbol does NOT necessarily mean that item is recyclable? Beth Terry opened my eyes to that fact last year at ShiftCon. My mind was blown – is yours?
