The United States produces almost 100 billion pounds of plastics every year and recycles only about 3.5%. Recycling plastics is challenging because of numerous different plastics. With the Sorting Plastics by Density: Recycling and Everyday Use—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, investigate the composition and properties of plastics, their recycling codes and identify unknown plastics based on their densities.
