AVEDA has informed us that they will discontinue their program and no longer accept plastic caps and closures.  They indicated in their letter to us that heightened awareness about the need to recycle plastics has been part of helping build pressure for curbside recycling of plastic caps resulting in improved recycling collection, processing technology and higher demand for the material across the industry.
