Recycling 101 from Kari-Out®

did you know…

Paper

Recycling paper and wood saves trees and forests. Yes, you can plant new trees, but you can’t replace virgin rainforest or ancient woodlands once they’re lost.

Plastic

Recycling plastic means creating less new plastic, which is a good thing, especially as it’s usually made from fossil fuel hydrocarbons.

Metals

Recycling metals means there’s less need for risky, expensive, and damaging mining and extraction of new metal ores.  It saves money and the environment.

Glass

Recycling glass reduces the need to use new raw materials like sand – it sounds hard to believe but supplies of some types of sand are starting to get low around the world!

 The difference between “recycled”, “recyclable” and “compostable”:

Recycled

A product that already includes content from previously used material.

In other words, recycled content means that the new product you’re using- let’s say, a paper cup- was made at least in part from content that has been recycled.

Recyclable

A product labeled as recyclable can go into the recycling bin, versus the landfill. Basically, these products have the potential to be re-processed into something new.  They are collected and sorted at a material recycling facility (MRF).
