You’re brilliant at recycling kitchen waste. But what happens when you get to the bathroom?
To one perfume bottle, it smells like a missed opportunity.
If I were a milk carton or an empty fish finger box, you’d recycle me wouldn’t you? But something happens when most people get to the bathroom. Bathroom products are far less likely to be recycled than kitchen ones, even though we’re made of much the same stuff.
True, I smell a lot sweeter than your average fish finger carton, but still…
So next time you’re in the shower thinking of all the things you need to do today, just add one small thing to the list. Do a 30 second bathroom blitz and give your home’s recycling one big burst of energy.
Blitz your bathroom – Wyre’s most wanted
So which products are most likely to be left out of the recycling?
Do the blitz
It only takes a few seconds to make a big difference. To make life easier, put a couple of small bags or bins in the bathroom – one for cardboard, one for glass, metal and plastic, so you don’t have to juggle armloads of ‘stuff’ you when you do your blitz. If you have children, make a game of it and get them into the recycling habit too.
Doing your bit to save the planet means more than just focusing on the kitchen. So get the bathroom involved too and double your impact.
