2 About CRI CRI’s mission is to make North America a global model for the collection and quality recycling of packaging materials. We do this by: Creating and maintaining a database on containers and packaging Studying container and packaging reuse and recycling options and legislation, including deposit systems, and their environmental and economic impacts Educating on recycling options for government, elected officials, for citizen groups, the print and broadcast media, publications and industry groups Creating national networks

3 Goals Research “best in class” programs; educate on best practices; assist with technical data Emphasis on high-quality materials that are able to achieve the promise of recycling, which is replacement of virgin materials in the manufacturing process Programs are paid for by consumers and producers, not taxpayers and ratepayers (in CRI 1991 articles of incorporation) Highest quantity, highest quality, lowest cost
