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?
- 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.
