Recycle all over the house!

Most of us have recycling bins in the kitchen. But have you ever thought about all the things in your bathroom that can be recycled as well? According to a recent study conducted for the Ad Council, 52% of Americans don’t know which items can be recycled in the bathroom. And only 10% of Americans have a recycling bin in their bathroom, compared to the 45% who have them in the kitchen.
I am  so pleased to donate time to promote the “I Want to Be Recycled” PSA campaign aims to raise awareness and inspire individuals to recycle more! Personal care products like shampoo and lotion bottles, toilet paper rolls, and toothpaste and soap boxes are significantly less likely to be recycled than kitchen products.

Whether it’s hairspray, leave-in conditioner or dry shampoo, many of your favorite beauty products and packaging can take on another life through recycling. For example, your shampoo bottle could be recycled into a hairbrush, or you might find a great new dress made from the recycled plastic of your favorite bottle of lotion.
