Find products made from recycled plastic
Buying recycled products is essential to create demand for recycled, rather than virgin, plastic. The Buy Recycled Products Directory – an initiative by Stina Inc – provides listings of recycled plastic products and packaging. Each is labelled with the percentage of recycled content, type of plastic used and whether the product has received third-party Recycled Content Certification.
Only 9% of the plastic produced is actually recycled.Source
- Creates demand for recycled content and, therefore, gives it value
- Gives plastic a second life
- Any company using post-consumer plastic recycled content can submit their products to the directory
- Requires consumers to make an active choice to use the directory
- In most cases, plastic can only be recycled effectively once, then must be disposed of through traditional waste management systems
- Ideally all products would be created from recycled content
