what's the best way to prepare a clamshell for recycling?
most recyclers don’t have the equipment or time to clean out soiled clamshells. instead, they just discard them. there are two things you can do to ensure your organicgirl clamshell stays in the cycle: a) clean thoroughly and dry your clamshell; b) remove as much of the sticker as possible.
instead of clamshells, why not use bags?
plastic bags are among the least recyclable of all plastic products. for one thing, they jam up recycling processing machinery. in fact, more and more states, from California to New York, are banning them altogether. even clamshells wrapped in plastic bags get discarded. For now, properly discarded #1 PET plastic clamshells are our best option.
