Recycled-Content Product Directory
Welcome to the Recycled-Content Product (RCP) Directory Home Page and thank you for your interest in products made from recycled materials.
This directory has been set up to assist individuals, small business owners, state agencies, and corporate buyers in the commitment to buy recycled. The RCP Directory lists thousands of products containing recycled materials as well as information about the manufacturers, distributors and re-processors of these products.
Although important, recycling is more than just dropping off cans, bottles and newspapers at the nearest recycling center. Diverting recyclables from the waste stream is the first of three steps in the recycling process. The second step occurs when companies use these recyclables to manufacture new products. Finally, the third step occurs when you, the consumer, purchase the products made from the recovered materials.
In addition, buying recycled products results in many environmental benefits. It supports local recycling programs by creating markets for the collected materials that are processed and used to manufacture new products. In turn, this creates new jobs and helps strengthen the economy; conserves natural resources; saves energy; and reduces solid waste, air, and water pollutants, and greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.
