Plastic (#5) – includes Brita filters
Plastic bums me out, and I talk about why a lot on this site. However, we all end up using it, and if you have some #5 plastic (yogurt containers, Brita filters), around, Preserve will take it at any Gimme 5 location (mostly Whole Foods stores and other co-ops.) They seem pretty sincere in their efforts, and all their products — toothbrushes, tableware, storage containers — are made from 100% recycled materials.
Of course, your local recycling program may take #5 plastic as well, but this is another option for you.
