The Green Dot

The Green Dot (above) which is seen on many packaging around the world isn't actually a sign for recycling, it is actually a trademark which shows that the company producing said packaging are contributing towards the recycling of packaging. The packaging this appears on however is not always recyclable itself.
The Green Dot is not used in the UK but packaging can be sold here carrying this symbol as long as long as the companies producing this packaging are paying a licence fee through Valpack Ltd as the Green Dot is still a trademark.
