Much better than a one time use sticker and considering the meaning it makes even more sense that it's reusable. The recycle stencil is great for showing your love of sustainable and green items. Perfect for signs or bins, the recycle symbol is a very easy to use stencil that works great with spray paint or a roller. The recycle symbol is the universally accepted symbol for recycle containers. Attention to the symbol began in the 1970s after Earth day, it's public domain and not a trademarked graphic. We offer the recycle symbol in small sizes if you're marking small cans or we do it very large for marking dumpsters or other big recycle containers. The great thing about this stencil is it can be reused so the stencil will hold up for the long haul.
