To learn about what materials are accepted for recycling in your area, check out the fabulous website, Earth911. At the Earth911 site, you can type in any material and your zip code and see if there is a site that will accept the product.
Learn more about Whole Foods Gimme 5 initiative and find out if there’s a store near you participating. If there’s not a store in your area participating, there’s also the option to mail it to Preserve.
