Comments:I strongly oppose any efforts to remove distinctions between pre and post-consumer recycled content. This would weaken markets for post-consumer materials and set back many of the hard-won recycling gains made in recent years. This information is important to consumers who are interested in contributing to the welfare of our planet - concealing it harms environmental goals simply for the benefit of some manufacturers. The goals should be more transparency and information, not less.
