Preserve: Gimme 5

At Ladies Lotto New York's last meeting we were asked to bring all our #5 recyclables to Hooligan Studios, to be recycled by Preserve. I didn't quite get it until now. I mean, I recycle like it's nobody's business but I didn't understand why #5 was so special. It turns out tons of products utilize #5 plastic but they are not widely recycled -- even if you sort them out.

Preserve's Gimme 5 program helps keep plastic out of landfills; keeps recycling local and helps the company make new products. You can recycle Britta water filters too.
