Recycling Symbol for Type-1 Plastics was approved as part of Unicode 3.2 in 2002.
The "♳" emote, also known as the Recycling Symbol for Type-1 Plastics, is a symbol used to indicate that a plastic product is made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and can be recycled. It was created in 1988 by the Society of the Plastics Industry to help consumers identify which plastics can be recycled. The symbol consists of three arrows forming a triangle, with the number "1" inside the triangle to indicate the type of plastic.
