Is plastic really one of the least recycled materials?

    Yes, plastic recycling rates in the United States are very low. Only about one-third of plastic bottles are recycled. Less than 1% of plastic bags are recycled. This is because they are often used to hold trash and many curbside recycling centers do not accept them. In addition, most recycled plastics are not reincorporated into packaging material and bottles, but rather turned into some sort of textile that cannot be recycled, so the notion that recycling allows us to use plastics over and over again is untrue.
