CARE TO RECYCLE in the Smallest Room of Your House

CFAHF_Type-01We recycle in this household but I never quite feel like we do enough. We have made efforts in our kitchen but have never really carried those efforts outside of that room.

Our BabiesDID YOU KNOW?

7 out of 10 Americans say they consistently recycle yetonly 1 in 5 Americans consistently recycle in the bathroom? Many consumers don’t even realize that most products commonly used in the bathroom can be recycled.

Each year, Americans throw away enough 15-oz. shampoo bottles to fill 1,164 football fields—that’s more than 18,000 tons of plastic ending up in landfills?

These kinds of facts are scary to me because our planet truly only has a finite amount of space. What happens when are landfills are full?

Johnson & Johnson knows that:

“OUR BABIES WILL INHERIT OUR PLANET®.”

As a result, they are committed to taking care of our natural There will be 9 billion people in the world by 2050 and with our natural resources already being consumed faster than the planet can replenish, caring for the planet that cares for us should be top of mind for most of us.

Johnson & Johnson uses recyclable materials in their product packaging but they need the help of the consumer when it comes to completing that “cycle of care” and you can by recycling the package when it is empty.

Recycling your personal care items may be a small act, in most likely one of the smallest rooms in your house. However by combining these acts of care across the world, there is no telling how large the impact will be.

For this amazing initiative, Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies has partnered with several recycling organizations, including Recyclebank, Keep America Beautiful, Earth 911 and Net Impact’s Small Steps, Big Wins.

RECYCLING

A lot of us probably already recycle and we know that it is good for the planet. But how many of you recycle in the bathroom?

I will admit that I honestly forget when it comes to recycling in the bathroom although we recycle almost everything in our kitchen. I use a lot of personal care products in the bathroom and could definitely use a reminder about recycling more of the items we use in our bathroom. I know that more bathroom recycling would in turn prevent valuable materials from entering landfills, unnecessarily. And this is a great thing!

CARE TO RECYCLE™ is a gentle reminder from Johnson & Johnson that you will soon be seeing on their packaging along with their CARE TO RECYCLE™ website, you'll find tips and tools to help you be a better recycler.

  1. Sigh….I am such a bad recycler. I do recycle, but I know that I could do so much better. Not that it’s an excuse, but our town only picks up recycling every other week and the bin is full after a few days, so I end up throwing what doesn’t fit into the trash.

  2. I’m ashamed to say it but I never recycle it just seems like so much work since we go through a lot of water bottles a month. But I understand how important recycling is, I just have to try harder.

    I am horrible at recycling… I normally pile all the recycling inside the door for my little man to grab and put in the green trash can, but there are times it is full and I have no clue what to do, so it ends up in the regular trash can… GREAT post though… thank you

  4. I am also not very good at recycling. I tried it for a while but kind of gave up. 🙁

  5. Our garbage pick up service makes us recycle. We have a special container just for recycling. We put everything that can be recycled into that container and they sort it out. Makes it easy for us.

  6. We already recycle everything we can but this encourages me to look deeper and see if there are items we are missing.

  7. My biggest problem with recycling bathroom items is washing them out-they are supposed to be cleaned before you recycle! But bathroom stuff takes a LOT of water which is a finite resource also–so what is a body to do/

  8. I had no idea about all this information. I will definitely think about all the unnecessary waste and how to recycle it.

  9. I will admit that the bathroom is one place that I usually forget about recycling. We recycle all over the house but don’t really have a place/way to do it in the bathroom. Great post to get you thinking.

  10. We have a a basket in the bathroom for all the recycling in there 🙂 found that helps me to remember to throw those things in the right place. x

  11. We recycle. Our trash company has an incentive program for recycling so I make sure we recycle everything that can be recycled. Well almost everything since the kids sometimes forget. 🙂

  12. This is such a great reminder. I am a horrible recyclers especially in the bathroom thanks for the reminder.

  13. I’m pretty phsyc’d! I actually do recycle the plastic bottles….now the paper stuff….I don’t know why I don’t think about recycling the toilet paper roll when it’s finished. I mean that should be obvious right? But I always forget!

  14. We try to recycle everything we can from kitchen to the bathroom. My kids love helping out and they love to add to our recycling bin.

  15. We are big recyclers. I make sure that every empty bottle is washed out and tossed in the recycle bin unless it is being reused for something else.

  16. Wake up call! I never even thought about all the soap bottles and whatnot I’m tossing right and left. Sheesh, I aim to get better on this!

  17. It’s so important to recycle whenever possible. I’m sure there are many items in my bathroom that I could recycle and I will be taking inventory of them this week.

  18. Dee

    You know, I’ve never recycled my soap bottles! Never crossed my mind…

  19. Seriously great info. here!! I’ve never thought to recycle many of the things in the bathroom that I’m sure you’re right could def. go in the bin!!

  20. i have my bottles in the recycle box! even one or two bottles a month per family add up.

  21. I’m pretty good about recycling now and my hubby says that I recycle too much. lol

  22. Trice

    i have never recycled a toothbrush. Never crossed my mind.

  23. I have to admit, I never ever thing to recycle the product in my bathroom – but I will now!

  24. You know I never even thought about this. What a great post to bring it to our attention! I think I’ll add a little mini reycling can. Thanks!

  25. Pam

    I have been recycling for years and the city I live in makes it very easy for us. We can put everything into the one huge blue container and just roll it to the street once a week.

  26. Emily Kristina

    I need to watch the bathroom recycling. Sometimes it just gets tossed out. My bad. Thanks for the reminder.
