Plastic Bottles Can Mean Jobs For North Carolinians


Author(s):
Abstract:
Recycling plastic bottles creates jobs for North Carolinians. Several recycling centers across the state turn old bottles into fabric fibers. The fibers can be used for a variety of products including t-shirts and car seat covers. The bottles are in such high demand that the Carolinas Plastics Recycling Council has started a campaign to increase the recycling of plastic bottles to support local manufacturers and businesses.
