List of plastic items REFUSED this week. (Yay!)
Plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic-coated cups with plastic lids, and so much more!
Total items collected: 6
Total weight: .2 ounces
1) Expired bank card. Earthworks systems collects used gift cards to recycle. I’m not sure if they will accept expired credit cards or not. There could be fraud issues. http://www.earthworkssystem.com/index.html
2-3) Two plastic envelope windows. Read about what plastic envelope windows are made of here: http://myplasticfreelife.com/2009/04/year-2-week-42-results-05-oz-of-plastic/
