Recycling is something that is super important to help our environment. I am going to be really honest here and say that that is an area that we could definitely improve upon in our household. This project got me thinking that since we are environmentally conscious in many ways, we need to be a lot better about recycling.
I took it upon myself to learn about what all you can recycle. Here is what I found:
-Empty clear glass
-Steel, tin and aluminum cans
-Plastic and plastic bags
You CANNOT recycle:
-Paper Milk or Juice Cartons (Wax Coated)
-Styrofoam Containers/ Packing
-Compost Food Waste
-Chemicals (Dry or Liquid)
I actually printed out an infographic for myself for our home to go on the fridge so it reminds me to recycle and so I know which items can be recycled.
Items included that can be recycled are shampoo, body wash and lotion bottles. Just rinse out your empty beauty products and recycle them. These empty bottles can then be made into something else in the future. For example, bottles for beverages, food containers, contains for dairy products, caps, lids, etc.
