GreenBlue's Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) is now offering funding for use of the How2Recycle Label, an on-package recycling label aimed at providing clear and consistent recycling instructions to consumers. The funding is supported by StopWaste and the Flexible Film Recycling Group (FFRG) of the American Chemistry Council (ACC). [Click here for PlasticsToday's coverage of the How2Recycle Label].
StopWaste, a public agency responsible for reducing waste in Alameda County, CA, is offering $20,000 in new funding for companies headquartered in Alameda County interested in joining the program. Geared at brand owners, packaging manufacturers, retailers, and others who can influence product packaging design, StopWaste's funding will cover How2Recycle license costs for one year, up to $4,000 per applicant. By facilitating the adoption of the label, StopWaste hopes to increase the recycling of product packaging, and to support the development of packaging designed for recyclability.
