Know your plastic resin codes - they make a difference
Look on the bottom of almost all plastic packaging and you should see a plastic resin code – usually a number inside the recycling symbol. These plastic codes indicate whether or not it can be recycled. A basic understanding of this (see the chart below) will enable you to select where possible, more recyclable materials. If it all feels to hard to deal with a simple rule of thumb is that codes 1 & 2 are well recycled, anything else isn’t.
