10. I don't think it is quite as bad as the video suggests

While the resin identification codes were created in 1988 by SPI, they were standardized in 2008 by ASTM International into ASTM D7611.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resin_identification_code

ASTM's 2013 changes the symbol to differentiate from the recycling symbol. I think the industry is being slow to adopt this as the older symbol seems to be more prevalent.

The video sort of omits the history post 2008 so there is a bit of gaslighting going on there.
