Since 1970, arrows chasing in a cycle has meant recycle or recycled. In 1990, The Green Dot adopted the same graphic motif, with a completely different meaning. We believe this has to change. The Green Dot symbol is used by over 150.000 companies, appearing on 400 billion packages every year and is regularly confused with the recycling symbol. However, it merely means that company or brand has made a financial contribution towards a recycling system or cause, and does not mean their product is recyclable or recycled.
