It’s not enough for packaging just to be made of a  material that can technically be recycled. We consider true recyclability, which means more than a label that says the item can be recycled. It means packaging has to meet our four criteria to be considered sustainable. These criteria are:

  • Can the consumer put it in the bin?
  • Can the local material recovery facility (MRF) sort it properly?
  • Can the processor turn the packaging into a usable recycled material?
  • Lastly, does someone want to buy the recycled material and turn it into a new package or product?
