Preserve started Gimme 5 in 2007 to create an easier way for more #5 plastics to be recycled – 98% of which are not normally recycled.

For throwback Thursday, we wanted to show our long-lasting first white Gimme 5 bin and our new blue Gimme 5 bin. Which bin does your local Whole Foods Market or local cooperative Co+op, stronger together market carry? (If it is the white bin, let us know which location because we may want to replace it… or at least clean it up nice for you)

To learn more about Gimme 5 visit: https://www.preserveproducts.com/recycle/programs/171/gimme-5-program or e-mail gimme5@preserveproducts.com

It’s always nice to see the Preserve toothbrush pop up in unexpected places – like the Airbnb Open event in San Francisco!

To showcase inexpensive, out-of-the-box design ideas, Airbnb hung “conceptual art pieces” in the entrance-way of the show. Hmmm... this could be our new office decor

In 2014, we plan to collect over 250,000 lbs of #5 plastic, including Brita filters, in our Gimme 5 retail collection program! That's equivalent to the weight of the plastic in more than 7 million Brita filters. Since Brita joined the program, we have collected the equivalent weight in plastic of 25 million filters. Together we are making a big difference.

Join us in recycling Brita filters: https://www.brita.com/using-your-brita/recycle-preserve/

Recycling #5 plastic, the good & the bad.

The bad news: According to the EPA only about 2% of #5 plastic packaging is recycled. Nationwide, #5 plastic is not accepted in many municipal recycling programs. Even when it is accepted, small items like caps are so small that they can literally fall through the cracks of large automated recycling facilities.

The good news: Preserve started Gimme 5 in 2009 to create a simple way to save these plastics and make sure they have the opportunity for renewal.  We’re now thrilled to partner with @Plum Organics to recycle their plastic pouch caps into new products made in the USA, like a Preserve toothbrush! https://www.preserveproducts.com/recycle/partners/4373/plum-organics
