SCS Recycled Content Certification
Categories: Product Certifications
Description: Since 1993, the SCS Recycled Content program has certified companies in over 70 provinces and states world-wide, spanning more than 10 countries. The Recycled Content program mission is to increase the use of recycled materials, limit solid waste and reduce the demand for natural resources.
Environmental Characteristics: Recycled content products are made from materials that would otherwise have been discarded. Inputs for recycled content products can come from numerous sources- Old newspapers, for instance, can be utilized in the fabrication of nursery pots and home insulation. Empty plastic water bottles can be recycled into textiles for the apparel industry. Industrial metal discards can be recycled into nails, hinges, doorknobs and other hardware.
