"RECYCLABLE" product is often misrepresented as RECYCLED. (examples: corrugated boxes, kraft paper grocery and shopping bags) This is deceiving. The wording requirements for an item that can be recycled should change to: "This item can be recycled" and should not be allowed to be used in conjunction with the recycled symbol.
