Remove Those Bottle Caps

Did you know the cap is not recyclable? I didn’t!

Recently reading about ways to further improve my life on the planet, I found a most disturbing fact. It seems that the caps on those recyclable plastic bottles are NOT made of recyclable plastic.

Recently reading about ways to further improve my life on the planet, I found a most disturbing fact. It seems that the caps on those recyclable plastic bottles are NOT made of recyclable plastic. What does this mean? Well, according to Earthlab.com, this means that, if you leave the cap on, the ENTIRE bottle will likely be discarded at the recycling plant. Man, that sucks!

Now I would hope that recycling plants have figured a way to deal with this situation in a better way than simply chucking the whole deal in the trash. However, just in cases they have not, I will be removing that stupid little cap before placing my plastic bottles in the recycling bin. It’s just another little thing that is not all that inconvenient that can make a huge difference in the end.
