How To Recycle Just About Anything

Real Simple

If you've ever held an item in your hands that was headed for the trash can and thought to yourself&mdashIs there any way I can recycle this?—then this A-Z recycling guide from Real Simple will probably make you very happy.

Real Simple's A-Z guide to recycling stuff is exhaustive.

They've included very useful info on things you've probably considered recycling (the packaging that your deodorant stick comes in) and things you've probably never considered recycling (your Crocs). In every instance they have instructions on how to best recycle the item.

Crocs can actually be sent back to the manufacturer and they'll be made into new shoes and donated to underprivileged families. Cool! We had no idea.
