How2Recycle Logos Aim to Make Recycling Easier

Blog

This post was written by Gwen Lorio, associate research fellow in Global Stewardship.

According to the latest EPA stats, about a third of the waste generated in the U.S. is recycled. That’s a number we’re hoping to help our consumers change for the better.

Next month, you’ll begin to see How2Recyle logos on some of our products in the U.S., including Fresh Step® and Scoop Away® kitty litter cartons, Green Works® laundry detergent and dishwashing liquid, and Oxi® stain remover. And our goal is to have all of our products carry the logos by 2020.
