♻️ National Recycling Week - let's talk plastic packaging! 🤷♀️ Recycling packaging can be confusing - just because it doesn't go in the kerbside recycling bin, doesn't mean it can't be recycled.
Game Changer! Many products now carry the Australasian Recycling Label, a clear guide to what goes where. It also makes manufacturers assess their packaging to see where they 'score' for recyclability by reviewing their shape, weight, size, inks, adhesives used etc. Hint: Soft plastic packaging is recycled here in Australia through the REDcycle program at your local Coles or Woolworths. https://www.redcycle.net.au/
