Recycle After You Snap, Crackle, Pop

Let’s raise a spoon and toast cereal, the most popular food item sold in grocery stores today. With 2.7 million boxes of cereal sold every year, it’s appropriate that we celebrate this popular food that serves as breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack to millions of Americans every day.

March 7, National Cereal Day, reminds us, too, that the plastic liners inside those cereal boxes can be recycled into beautiful and durable Trex decking. We combine those recycled plastic liners and other post-consumer plastic with wood scraps to create our environmentally friendly decking.

According to NationalCerealDay.com, 49 percent of us start our day with a bowl of cereal. That means there are millions of plastic liners in kitchens across America, just waiting to be recycled. Check with your local recycling facility to learn the best way to recycle all that plastic.
