Package Reuse *
Rate the package for ease of recycling or other reuse. OUR PLANET IS IMPORTANT: Please give a rating of 5 only if the package is Reusable, Collectible or Attractive and begging for a spot in your home or collection for life (5). Middle ratings are up to you: Could stickers be made easier to remove before composting? Perhaps they could be attached another way. (4 to 1) Plastic doob tubes, as small pieces, deserve a rating of 1 because they recycle so very poorly. They only get re-used if YOU re-use them. (1); And finally - Non-recyclable, seldom re-used plastics, such as large or small zips, small plastic jars, plastic bags, etc. (0) You be the judge; if you feel this package is destined for the landfill without another use, please give it a zero.

Non-trademarked names are better (e.g. dark chocolate truffle, boysenberry-flavored fruit gels, sour mango mints, orange-berry soda, etc.), but we know sometimes trade names for products like "Galacti-Cola" must be used.
