The average American goes through over 250 pounds of plastic waste yearly. Much of this waste comes from packaging.
We know that plastic is harmful to the environment. Some would take hundreds of years before decomposing, while others don’t decompose at all. This is why we do our best in recycling plastic, so that we can minimize the plastic waste. However, not all plastic is recyclable. This begs the question: which plastic is recyclable and which is not?
Fortunately, NPR looks into the matter to help us identify which is which. Why don’t you check it out?
