Recycling Codes 101, what they are & what Totally Promotional uses!

Today marks the 45th Earth Day as the first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970.

As we take part in helping our earth on this day, we would like to showcase our Eco-Friendly and Recyclable products we carry here at Totally Promotional.  We get a lot of questions on our plastic products and if they are recyclable and if so, what is the recycling code.  Therefore, we’d like to lay out a easy to understand guide about recycling codes and what codes are used on our plastic products.  Below is a easy to understand guide on Plastic Recycling Resin Codes, all of the numbers and what each of the numbers represent.

And below is an infographic showing our plastic drinkware products and what codes are used on our products.

We also carry paper cups, which are completely recyclable as paper products.  We also carry a few reusable tumblers, which are also BPA Free, Made in the USA and Top Rack Dishwasher Safe as these cups are reusable and should be items that are meant to be kept for a long period of time!  Below we show these popular tumblers, they each come in an assortment of colors.

So go out there and take a few minutes or hour out of your day today and make sure you recycle, pick up some garbage you see laying around, plant a tree, walk or ride your bike to wherever you need to go and try to plan for a better future for our planet Earth.  Love the world you are on and protect it, Happy Earth Day!
