OAKLAND, Calif., April 23, 2013 /3BL Media/ – The Clorox Company (NYSE:CLX) is encouraging people to recycle by adding How2Recycle logos, which will begin to appear next month in the U.S. on Fresh Step® and Scoop Away® kitty litter cartons, Green Works® laundry detergent and dishwashing liquid, and Oxi® stain remover.

The logos, which explain how to properly recycle or dispose of all elements of the product’s packaging, will be rolled out to other products in conjunction with label redesigns. Clorox plans to include the logo on all U.S. and Canada product packaging by 2020.

The How2Recycle Label is the only labeling system for packaging that communicates recyclability across all material types and provides clear directions, including when components of a product’s packaging are not recyclable.

The Sustainable Packaging Coalition® (SPC) developed the How2Recycle logos as part of its larger efforts to drive a more compelling environmental vision for packaging. The SPC, of which Clorox is a member, is a project of GreenBlue®, a nonprofit that equips companies with the science and resources to make products more sustainable.

A recent SPC online consumer survey found that 80 percent of respondents felt more positive about companies that used the How2Recycle label, and 43 percent reported they had changed their recycling behavior due to the How2Recycle logos piloted by other SPC members in 2012.
