The Gimme 5 website has concise, clear copy on what is and is not accepted. Essentially, the requirements are: 1> #5 must be printed on the plastic 2> only rigid #5 is accepted, NOT film 3> plastic washed of food|beverage and labels removed. For the NOT accepted items, the site gives easy to understand reasons for the exclusion.
Begun in 2009, Gimme 5 is a young program and Preserve is keeping its growth restricted to Whole Foods and several other retailers.
Walking the talk in personal lives is essential to integrity within the Zero Waste Zones program. Thanks to the Gimme 5 program there is an option for consumer #5 plastic to maintain its value in the recycling process.
