We recycle, our church recycles, our malls recycle, we recycle as a community. Not all of our malls recycle but some of them do. Many work places around where we live recycle and my kids definitely know what recycling is. We have this very special trash can that has two containers within it. On the left goes the trash and on the RIGHT goes Recycling. R for right R for recycling. The kids are really good at helping their friends recycle when they are in our house. The hardest thing for us to remember to recycle are the products in the bathroom because we don’t have a separating trash can in the bathroom.
DID YOU KNOW?
7 out of 10 Americans say they consistently recycle yet only 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?
ABOUT CARE TO RECYCLE™
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. Visit Tumbler and share your Recycling. http://caretorecycle.com/post/60157791446/help-us-spread-the-word-share-the-video-and-show and we’re hoping you show your commitment to recycling in the bathroom..
The 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. And in our house we take the if in doubt then recycle it approach. Our recycling container is always full and we usually have a stack of extra recyclables now if we concentrate on the bathroom too, we’ll have even more recycling, what about you?
