Recycling has come a long way. It was not long ago that you had to sort materials into separate bins yourself and then drive them across town to find a drop-off. Nowadays, single sort and curbside pick-up are more common and make recycling easier. As a result, the number of households that recycle continues to rise. Labels have also become easier to read as the industry transitions from numbers-based (e.g. 1, 2, 3) to easy-to-read labels from How2Recycle®.
How2Recycle, the leading recycling labeling system in the US and Canada, is excited to welcome Yum! Brands and their KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and The Habit Burger Grill brands into the How2Recycle label program. Yum! Brands, based in Louisville, Kentucky, has over 50,000 restaurants in more than 150 countries and territories and is a global leader of the chicken, pizza, and Mexican-style food categories. Yum!’s global citizenship and sustainability strategy, called its Recipe for Good, focuses on responsible and sustainable growth, of which minimizing waste is a key component. Yum!
Progress is a wonderful thing. Data shows us that people today are collectively more healthy, literate and environmentally conscious than at any point in human history.
Technology has driven much of this progress. The rate of technological change can sometimes feel overwhelming, but we nearly 8 billion humans need the most advanced thinking possible if we’re going to thrive on a crowded planet with limited resources.
Hanes will incorporate How2Recycle’s standardized labeling system across all product lines to more clearly communicate how to recycle the company’s product packaging
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Sept. 24, 2019 /3BL Media/ – HanesBrands uses recycling to divert more than 86% of its production waste from landfills with a goal of 100% by 2020. Now, the company is making it easier for consumers to pitch in when they pitch out its product packaging.
Nowadays, “plastic” can sound to some like a four-letter word. That is not entirely without reason. Mismanaged waste, of all kinds, too often is ending up at the side of the road, in fields and meadows, meandering through our streams, choking our waterways and entering our oceans. We can all agree that this is simply unacceptable.
There are a many reasons why plastics, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), have become so commonplace in our world – they’re safe, lightweight, resilient, and most importantly, they are recyclable.
