When it comes to plastic


This may be a US specific question- but I’m wondering of all the plastics which number is most effectively recycled? By that I mean which type of plastic is most likely to be reused after recycling – or takes the least amount of energy to recycle?

I know that all in all plastic is bad for the environment, so this year I’ve made it a personal goal to drastically reduce my portion of plastic waste. My question comes from the hope that for those plastics I have a hard time avoiding, at least I could shop for brands or versions of products that could be most effectively recycled.

I know where I live they accept plastics #1 through #5 and no longer accept higher numbers.
