Yesterday we looked at the different numbers assigned to plastic containers.  They all have one thing in common; they are surrounded by a triangle formed by three arrows.

Those three arrows have significance.  They represent the three steps of recycling.  The first step is the collection of recyclable material.  The second step is the processing of that material into new items.  The third step is the purchase of items made from recyclable material.  The cycle is not complete without all three steps.
