Post-consumer content is an end product that has completed its life cycle as a consumer item and rather than being sent to the landfill, it is diverted by reusing the material in a new product. Examples of items that may include post-consumer content are office paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, plastics and metals. By recycling materials that have served their intended use, new products can be made. For example, a plastic bottle can become carpet backing by placing it in a recycling bin. It’s just as important to purchase materials that contain recycled content as it is to recycle.
