CARE TO RECYCLE in the Smallest Room of Your House
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.
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.
