Time to talk about:

Buying Recycled & Recycling Cardboard


Recycling Right is only the first step to building the circular economy, the system that keeps our resources circulating from consumers back to manufacturers, creating more jobs and keeping our resources out of the landfill. 

Texans can help 'close the loop' by buying products made with recycled content. 

The graphics below are ready to share.

These #BuyRecycled graphics were generously donated by students of TCU's Dept. of Graphic Design as part of a collaborative project overseen by Instructor Jan Ballard. Read more about the project here

STAR is actively seeking more collaborators for new #BuyRecycled Content.

This video by The Recycling Partnership over the economic value of recycling is ready to share.


Cardboard is one of the key components of our supply chain and can be recycled up to 7 times!

To Recycle Right, cardboard boxes should emptied, flattened, and any tape should get pulled off and go in the trash.  


This graphic by Time to Recycle is ready to share. is managed by the State of Texas Alliance for Recycling (STAR).
