Did you know that 94% of U.S. households have access to a plastics recycling program?

So what happens to all those recycled plastics? Those plastic bottles, containers, bags and wraps can go on to lead a second life as carpeting, kitchen gadgets, handbags, fleece jackets, t-shirts, bracelets, backyard decks … or new bags, bottles and containers.

You can help. This America Recycles Day, join Plastics Make it Possible® and resolve to recycle! Make a pledge and see how others voted.
