Buy post-consumer recycled

The recycling industry is controlled by economics of supply and demand. When you buy goods made with recycled content, your purchases help create a demand for materials collected in recycling programs.

Remember to ask stores you frequent which products they carry are made with post-consumer content. This means the product was made from materials that were used and recycled by consumers, rather than from virgin material.
