Post-Consumer and Post-Industrial Recycled Material:
What’s the difference?
Post-Consumer material comes from waste that has been used by a consumer, disposed of, and diverted from landfills — things like the aluminum cans, plastic bottles and bags, and newspapers that you place in your recycling bin for pick-up.
Post-Industrial material comes from resin that has been processed but not sold as prime material. Instead, it is sold to another party and reground for reuse.
