Any use of recycled content is good. It drives markets which makes recycling more cost efficient. But recyclability is also an issue. Almost all recycling programs accept just plastics 1 and 2 (PET and HDPE) with necks. So while Nature Juice will be able to be recycled again, Earthbound Farms containers are generally not.
Luckily at T2T, we have a partnership with Plastic Pallet Solutions which accepts all plastics EXCEPT for styrofoam and film (bags). They make pallets, crates and other items with the materials.
