The Buy Recycled Products Directory, managed by More Recycling, showcases more than 200 plastic items made using post-consumer resin that are available in the marketplace right now. As the top chart below indicates, the majority of the products we have identified fall into the consumer goods category, but many also are geared toward the commercial sector, meaning businesses do have opportunities to drive PCR demand through their own procurement practices. The bottom chart shows that more than half of the products in the directory use PET, though examples of PCR use for all resin types can be found in the database. See the complete product rundown at recyclemoreplastic.org/buyrecycled.
