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.

The name Muir Glen should sound familiar to Earth Day enthusiasts. In 1990 the organic food pioneers who began the brand chose the name to honor the legendary naturalist, John Muir, who established the Sierra Club and Yosemite National Park more than a hundred years ago.
