Do You Recycle Bathroom Products? Start Now with This Scavenger Hunt!



Recycling is easy, once you make a conscious decision to do it. You simply designate a recycle bin, and separate your cans, plastics, papers and other recyclable items. You keep your recycle bin in an area that’s easily accessed by everyone in the house, like the kitchen probably. That’s where most of our recyclable items come from at least. Seems simple enough.

But what happens behind closed doors?

You’re probably wondering what exactly I mean by “closed doors”.  Well, I’m digging deeper than the kitchen recyclables, into an area that often gets overlooked when we’re thinking green. I’m talking about the bathroom.

Many people forget to recycle in the bathroom, which is, coincidentally, the place where most personal care products are used. When Johnson & Johnson realized this problem last October, they decided to do something about it!  This brought about the launch of Care To Recycle. Care To Recycle® aims to raise awareness of recycling in the bathroom through engaging, educational content such as statistics, DIY projects, and True/False posts


Not quite sure what exactly you should be recycling? Not to worry! Care to Recycle has you covered with that info and more!  In celebration of Care To Recycle’s 1-Year Anniversary, they are hosting a scavenger hunt with Recyclebank! 

Helpful information such as where to recycle, what to recycle, and how to recycle can all be found on the Care To Recycle® page: Be sure to check out this helpful information during the scavenger hunt.

    Sounds like a fun way to earn some RecycleBank points. We try to recycle but could use a little more education on what else we can recycle. Reply

    I have recently gotten off the recycling train because of all the stuff going on in my life. This seems like a great way to get back in the habit. Reply

    Hubby and I used to recycle but stopped a few years ago, mainly because we found that our waste management company was dumping all of the recyclables in the same truck as the other trash so it was pointless. Reply
