When we recycle, we give garbage another life. Shampoo bottles transform into hairbrushes. Body wash bottles become toothbrushes. Toilet paper rolls turn into tissue boxes. Today, curbside recycling programs exist in 63% of American communities— making it more possible than ever to give new life to the products we use. Even so, only about a third of the 1,600 pounds of garbage every American generates each year gets recycled or composted. Don’t let littler linger in landfills when it still has more to give! Motivate your community to learn more about what they can recycle—including bathroom and other personal care products—and to make recycling an everyday habit. Think what we could create if we all worked together to turn more trash into treasure.
