Plastic toiletries and bathroom bottles belong with your RECYCLING.

 

Examples: Shampoo, shower gel, soap dispenser bottles.

Hints and Tips: Some shops now sell ‘refillable’ toiletries, or why not use shampoo/soap/conditioner bars instead?

Fact:

  • More than 15% of the money we spend on products pays for packaging – most of which goes straight in the bin.
  • 8 million tonnes of the world’s plastics end up in our oceans each year, creating a garbage patch three times the size of France.
  • Only 50% of recyclables from the bathroom are actually recycled.
