Recycled - What does recycled mean?
Definition of RECYCLED:
Recycled refers to items or materials that are being used again (in their original form or adapted, usually for a different purpose) OR contain material(s) that have been produced by recycling other items.
For example, "recycled gift tags" could refer to Christmas cards that have been cut down to form gift tags (so their original form has been adapted for a different purpose) OR to gift tags made from recycled paper (for example, paper that was originally used to make newspapers and has been recycled).
It should be noted that the term recycled is applied to items that are entirely or partially made from recycled materials. Recycled materials themselves may be made from 100% recycled materials or a lower percentage. The percentage of recycled material will vary from product to product. Manufacturers may indicate the exact recycled content of their products or use symbols or logos to indicate that their products meet the minimum content and manufacturing requirements of a particular international or local standard determined by a relevant organisation.
