IS RECYCLING ENOUGH?                          

We must now take the next step!

Recycling material instead of landfilling them is only half of the job. We must now look to buying recycled products. By helping create a market for recycled products, we ensure that recycling works! A package label will usually identify whether the product or packaging material is made of recycled materials. Read the labels!
