How many times have we been poised over the recycling bin with a sloppy can in hand, wondering, can I recycle this? Enter this handy Recycling FAQ from the Gaiam Community website.
They cover ten frequently asked questions like, How can I tell which plastics are recyclable?, Do I need to take the labels off jars and cans?, and If a glass or plastic product doesn't have a recycling logo on it, can it still be recycled? They also answer a question we've wondered about - can you recycle aluminum foil? The answer is yes, usually, as long as any food has been thoroughly removed.
Check it out, and next time you finish that tub of yogurt or can of beans, do everyone a favor and toss it in the recycle bin.
