Caring for a Healthy Future with Bathroom Recycling

CFAHF_Type-01-01Currently in the United States, 7 out of 10 Americans say they consistently recycle. We’re awesome at recycling… and yet somehow we forget to recycle from the smallest room in the house.  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 (or we just forget like I do).  I cringe thinking just how many times I’ve finished a shampoo bottle and simply dumped it into the garbage can.

I just posted on the Climate Reality project, so this issue is so very relevant to me, as it should be for you too.  This can have a major impact on the environment: 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. Simply by being more aware, and making a few small changes can really change the landscape of the world.

Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies launched a new campaign, CARE TO RECYCLE™, to create awareness about the importance of bathroom recycling and help to change behavior.  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 to provide helpful resources to consumers.
