National Recycling Day!

Today is National Recycling Day! In 1997, we officially started to celebrate National Recycling Day. This day aims to encourage Americans to recycle more and purchase recycled products.

There are numerous benefits to recycling that one can adopt daily or weekly to positively impact our environment. Some key benefits of recycling include reducing waste sent to landfills, conserving natural resources, and saving energy.

Everyone can do their part to help. Did you know that many everyday items, such as aluminum cans, glass bottles, plastic bottles, cardboard, and magazines/newspapers, can be recycled?

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Recycling is something everyone can participate in to make a difference. Whether that is bringing your own reusable bags to the grocery store, using a refillable water bottle, or bringing all of your cardboard boxes to a recycling center. 

An EPA study from 2016 discovered that recycling and reuse activities in the United States accounted for 681,000 jobs and $37.8 billion in wages, translating to 1.1 jobs for every 1,000 tons of materials recycled.

Here at ClearBags, we’re committed to producing sustainable products that can be recycled. We also offer items made from post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials. We recognize the significance of recycling and strive to provide packaging solutions that are eco-friendly.

Crystal Clear Boxes

Crystal Clear Boxes are made from 12 mil PET material. PET has a recycle code of #1, which is often the most common and easiest to recycle because it is clear. All of our PET boxes can be placed in recycling bins that accept #1 materials.
