Can you identify your plastics?

We have a new resource on our website.

The Plastic Resin Identification Code

Do you know the 7 Plastic Resin Identification Codes?

You may have already noticed the little triangles on your plastic packages, but do you know what they mean? Most people think it just means that the item is recyclable, but this is not the case. Inside those triangles are numbers. 1 – 6  represent the type of plastic that has been used. And number 7 is then a general one which is when the plastic has been lumped together. We have created this Plastic Resin Identification Code chart so that you can quickly identify the plastics you are using.

You can download the chart here and use it and educate other people. Why not test your colleagues to see if they know what plastic their water bottle is made from?

We will be explaining this chart in more detail for you, so watch this space.
