5 tips to make recycling from your bathroom easier

Recycling probably matters to you, including in your bathroom. But with so many different kinds of packaging, you might end up feeling confused and discouraged! And yet, sorting your beauty and skincare products is a crucial step in their recycling process.

So here are 5 motivational tips to inspire you to start recycling from your bathroom today!

 

LEARN WHERE EACH ITEM GOES

One of the main reasons why we so often give up on recycling is that we simply don’t know what goes in which bin. Unsure of what to do with the various packaging materials, we might panic and end up throwing everything in the household waste bin. But all that is needed is to recap once and for all to solve the issue - and that’s a promise! So, if you need a little reminder on how to become a recycling pro, check out our article “How to recycle your hygiene and beauty product packaging” or visit the website Let’s recycle in style!

DON’T WAIT TO RECYCLE

The best way not to end up buried under a pile of empty beauty and skincare products is to recycle them, little by little. This tip may seem obvious but we often tend to leave almost-empty bottles lying around while we go out and buy new ones. Get into the habit of really finishing up your products before purchasing more so that you don’t have so much packaging to sort through all at once. As a result, you won’t feel so discouraged by the task - and you’ll save some money in the process!

INVEST IN A SECOND BIN

The problem with bathroom products is that we naturally tend to throw them in the only waste bin around, i.e. the same one where we also throw used cotton pads and balls of hair. The best way to break this habit is to invest in another bin. Don’t be afraid of how much space it might take, a mini bin will do.

RAISE AWARENESS AROUND YOU

The more people recycle, the merrier! By getting your family on board, there will always be someone to motivate you and remind you to do the right thing!

THINK OF OUR PLANET!

There is no better argument to create the desire to recycle. By helping recycle waste, you help conserve exhaustible natural resources, save energy and avoid more pollution due to the extraction, transport, and processing of these resources!
