I got the below infographic at OnlineEducation.net. I have to admit that also me and my husband are worse when it comes to recycling plastic than other materials but that young people in general are worse at recycling plastic than older ones I didn't know. When I thought about it though, I wasn't surprised, a lot of our friends are not even composting which I think is the most basic.
So; if you are not yet recycling at all, perhaps it could be a good New Years resolution? I'm sure you've done more difficult things in life! And if you are recycling, but not plastic, how about adding that to your recycling habits?
For the rest of you congrats; you're probably already a recycling guru!
