Earth Day is right around the corner on April 22nd and though I wish everyone would choose to treat everyday as Earth Day this is always a nice reminder to get back on track.  It’s amazing how changing simple things in our lives can make such a dramatic impact on the environment.  Like recycling. 

Have you ever thought about how the smallest room in your home – the bathroom – creates an enormous amount of waste from packaging?  So many plastic bottles – shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, lotion, hair spray, detangling spray, and more.  Cardboard containers and toilet paper rolls too!  What if instead of tossing those things into the trash can we recycled them?

Johnson & Johnson wants to remind us that our babies will inherit our planet.  That’s why they believe it’s our responsibility to take care of our natural resources today, and for generations to come. And while many of us recycle, many of us forget to recycle in the bathroom. To get you jump started check out this little cheat sheet list so you’ll know what’s recyclable and what’s not in the bathroom!

1.)  Plastic Bottles – YES!  Plastic bottles marked #1 (PETE) and #2 (HDPE) are recyclable in most communities. This includes: shampoo, conditioners, body wash, lotion, and more.

2.)  Plastic – YES!  Plastic marked #4 (LDPE) and #5 (PP) may not be accepted for recycling via curbside programs. Check with your municipality and the Earth911 recycling locator. Some #5 (PP) plastics may also be recycled via drop-off or mail-in programs.

3.)  Caps – YES!  Caps and closures may be kept on plastic bottles and containers at the point of recycling. Caps are often made from #5 plastic and can usually be recycled through your curbside recycling program. Check with your local municipality.

4.)  Paperboard Items – YES!  Most paperboard items are recyclable: Toilet paper rolls; cardboard boxes and cartons for over the counter drugs, lotions, soaps, bandages, etc.

5.)  Toothbrushes – NO!  Toothbrushes are generally only recyclable through take-back programs, as most municipalities don’t accept them as recycling.

6.)  Tubes – NO! Most bathroom tubes (toothpaste, etc.) are made with plastic laminate, which most   municipalities do not accept for recycling.

7.)  Pumps – NO! Currently, the pumps on bottles are not recyclable due to the multiple components that are contained within a pump.  Please remove all pumps before recycling a bottle, then put the bottle in your recycling and the pump in your garbage.

8.)  Dental Floss Containers – NO!  Dental floss containers are usually made with multiple parts of multiple materials, so they generally cannot be recycled, except via the mail-in and drop-off programs.

    We always rinse out our bottles after using from shampoo, dish soaps, etc and recycle once cleaned out. This is a great post, thanks for sharing

  2. Jeffrey says:

    We recycle everything we can, making less than one regular size bag of garbage per week for a family of four. I compost food scraps and repurpose many items. This is some great information as I found a few bits I was unaware of.

    Thanks for sharing! I think sometimes we forget to recycle things in the bathroom. I am always taking things out of the trash to put in recycling.
