Tell the FTC: "Widely recyclable" labels shouldn't be allowed on plastic products that never actually get recycled.

Docket # FTC-2022-0077

Something should only be labeled as recyclable if you can actually recycle it. Unfortunately, that's not currently the case. Too many companies are using labels like "widely recyclable" to imply that their products are sustainable, despite being made with plastics like polypropylene that are barely ever recycled.

We urge you to prohibit the use of the word recyclable, and use of the recycling symbol, unless the item is actually recyclable.
