    I searched the website for "TYVEK" and am surprised not to find a single article! I have a Priority Mail envelope that indicates " 2 HDPE, TYVEK is Recyclable," so I'm going to guess that I can throw it in the grocery bag collection bin, based on this article, even though general internet search results suggest that I cannot.

    A woman at my church weaves used plastic bags into sleeping maps for the homeless. She uses all sizes and colors of bags. Check with your local shelter to see if someone in your area weaves mats and can use your old plastic bags.

    I have heard over and over that plastic bags cannot be recycled through normal curbside pick up programs. However, what I am confused about then, is if the plastic bag is labeled as #2, and my town recycles #2 plastics, woudn't that then cue people in to recycling that with all their other bottles and things? It's unfortunate how unclear these labels are for consumers that are trying to do the right thing, but don't know how!

    The plastic food bags from good sense snacks (Waymouth Farms) are recyclable according to their customer service.

    Is polypropylene bags recyclable? I see many people saying PP bags have higher PP content which makes it hard to recycle compared to normal plastic bags.
