Q: What is the difference between pre- and post-consumer recycled content?

A: An increasing number of building materials, such as flooring, contain some amount of recycled (instead of "virgin") content. Pre-consumer content is material that is recovered from a manufacturing process, such as sawdust from a lumber mill; post-consumer content is material that has been collected and recycled into another consumer product, such as plastic water bottles used to make composite wood deck planks or old denim jeans used for wall insulation.
