Macy’s Recycled Recycling Bin?

I have to assume that the material for this temporary plastic corrugate recycling bin is recycled itself. How appropriate, if so. And also if so, I would recommend that the maker or sponsor, in this case Macys, imprint that fact on the bin and revel in the bragging rights. Once full, I wonder if you drop the whole thing in a plastic shredder and start all over making the new recycled bin that pops out the other end? CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup of the imprint design. I wonder if soy or other eco-friendly inks? Trade names for the material itself include Coroplast, Plasticor, and others.

  1. Those are common and seen in many supermarket entrances. They’re just recycling the plastic bags. I think the fixture is unrecycled Coroplast. Corogreen is 100% recycled material and would be opaque.
