Gimme 5 from Preserve

Preserve is a company that manufactures products made from 100% recycled plastics and 100% post-consumer paper.

The specific type of plastic Preserve uses is #5 plastic, which gets recycled by very, very few communites. So the company has stepped up with a program called Gimme 5.

Gimme 5 has drop-off bins in select Whole Foods stores (click here for a list of locations) where you can drop off: Clean plastic containers with #5 stamped on it (think of yogurt pots and other tub-shaped food containers), any Preserve product (more on this in a later post) and Brita filters (!).

And if there is no convenient Gimme 5 bin (OK, Whole Foods may seem like it's everywhere, but it's not), Preserve will also accept any of the above items by mail: Preserve Gimme 5, 823 NYS Rte 13, Cortland, NY 13045.
