My Recycling Label

I  have used my plastic sleeve folder's recycling label as an example for todays blog. The symbol is comprised of a recycling symbol with the number four within it, which indicates to us that the product is made from low-density polyethylene or LDPE. Low-density polyethylene is a thermoplastic that is made from a monomer of ethylene. It hasnt got many recyclable applications but one way of recylcing it is by adding it to wood for industrial applications. When LDPE is recycled, it saves the atmosphere the most greenhouse gasses.
