The One Essential That Shouldn’t Be Missing from Your Bathroom
Life is busy and life is messy. We’ll be the first to acknowledge that it can be hard to be environmentally conscious when we have so much other stuff to worry about. But while there are plenty of things that we can’t control, there’s one thing we do know: We can positively impact the environmental future of our planet with simple and quick daily actions that don’t encroach on our busy days. We’re thrilled to team up with Care To Recycle®, a program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc., which shows us how simple it is to care for the planet like we care for our families.
So, where to begin? Turns out, lots of bathroom products can be recycled — like shampoo bottles, mouthwash bottles, and toilet paper rolls, to name a few. So, why aren’t we doing so? News flash, the obvious reasons (“The trash bin is right there,” and “I’d have to rinse the bottle first,” etc.) don’t measure up to the negative impact we’re making on our one and only home base. Here’s the simple solution: Put a recycling bin in the bathroom! This one decision will make a difference for the planet without complicating your busy lifestyle.
Y’all, it’s *this* easy to make a difference.

Like any healthy practice, the trick to sticking with it is to make it an easy habit. That’s where we come in! We’ve created some nifty (and may we say, adorable) printables to hang above our brand new baño recycling bin to make recycling a breeze for us and our kiddos.
Seriously, how cute are these? Click the links below to download.
Scroll on to read three persuasive reasons to add a recycling bin to your bathroom, if we haven’t convinced you already :)
1.It’s a teaching moment for the kiddos. Your little ones can learn the yes’s and no’s of recycling, and know they’re being a big help with their simple action. Win, win!
2.You’re doing Mother Earth a favor. You guys, the amount of plastic we throw away each year is enough to circle the earth FOUR times. That’s plastic alone! Tons of these plastics can actually be recycled. By taking care of our planet now, we’re ensuring our kids will inherit a healthy place to live. In a way, we’re actually helping your children, grandchildren, and generations to come.
3. It’s one less chore for you. We all know this: The simpler it is to do something, the more likely we are to do it. If you’re already on top of recycling in the home (high five!), you should still consider adding a bin to your bathroom to minimize the work. No more carting those recyclables all the way to the kitchen bin!
Time to get your ducks in a row and start recycling ;)
