A Recycler’s Christmas List

This post is just as relevant today as when we first published it in December 2014. Enjoy!


This holiday season, Vangel inc. invites you to contribute to a more sustainable way of living by simply closing the loop. Closing the loop means purchasing recycled content in place of new products. For example, recycling your old cell phone and then purchasing a refurbished phone instead of a brand new phone would be closing the loop. Another example of closing the loop is recycling all leftover Christmas decorations and wrapping paper accordingly and then purchasing recycled wrapping paper and decorations the following year.

In a recent study done among over 2,000 adults in the U.S., more than 2 in 5 (43%) consider the product’s materials (what the product is made of and whether or not the product was made from recycled materials) when making a purchasing decision. According to the survey, depending on convenience, it seems many are willing to close the loop.
