Whole Foods is teaming up with Preserve for a new program to recycle #5 plastics. Most communities only accept #1 and #2 for recycling so this is big news!
#5 plastics include yogurt containers and medicine bottles, among others. Simply collect your #5's at home (you can also set up a collection bin at work, if you are willing to transport it to the nearest Whole Foods) and bring them with you next time you go shopping.
Not all Whole Food stores are participating yet, so click here for a list of participating stores.
