When it comes to recycling at home, the kitchen still reigns as the most common place to find a recycling bin. It’s easy to forget that in other rooms of the house, like the bathroom, there are a lot of recyclable items that should be making it to the blue bin as well.
To help encourage recycling in every part of your home, Plastics Make it Possible has launched Bathroom to Bin, an interactive infographic that takes you on a fun recycling journey through a typical bathroom cabinet.
The virtual medicine cabinet offers not only some simple tips to help you recycle more of the plastics in your bathroom, but a chance to win $500 as well. Visitors can answer a single-question poll about recycling to be entered into the Bathroom to Bin Giveaway for a chance to win a $500 American Express gift card.
“Bathroom to Bin is an entertaining way to encourage all of us to expand recycling beyond the kitchen and into the bathroom,” said Steve Russell, vice president of plastics for the American Chemistry Council, which sponsors the Plastics Make it Possible initiative. “Recycling bathroom plastics is a simple step we can take to help the environment by capturing more of this valuable material from the waste stream.”
