What do you do with your shampoo and conditioner bottles when you are finished with them?  In our house, Broxton turns them into magic potion bottles for a few days and then they magically disappear to the trash can when he is at school one day.  I know, I know... I should recycle them, but let me tell you...  growing up, the only thing that was recycled around our area was cans...  then, when I moved into an apartment, I tried ( I really, really did!) to do the whole recycling thing, but it just never worked...   I received an email the other day that put a different look on things, so guess what... We are going to try it again.  I think it might be easier now that we have a house (more room to try and recycle.) 
 
Check out a few facts from the email I received:

Think that empty shampoo bottle is just a bottle? Think again. With just a rinse and a recycle, empty bath and beauty bottles can take on new life and return as hairbrushes, backpacks or even backyard play set.   ---  Are you kidding me?  I had no clue... hairbrushes, backpacks or play sets?  NO WAY! 
 
Common bathroom products like shampoo, body wash and lotion bottles could be more likely to end up in landfills than their kitchen counterparts, contributing to the nearly 29 million tons of plastics sent to landfills each year!  --  Sad to say I am part of the problem.  I just never really thought about it,  before now.
 
Unileverthe maker of products including Dove®, Suave®, St. Ives®, Caress® and more – is stepping in to inspire Americans to clean up their act in the bathroom.  
Beware the product hoarders: 1 in 5 Americans (20%) have more than 10 bathroom products in plastic bottles in their bathroom at a given time. 
What gets Americans moving: Americans are more likely to go the distance to get a drink when thirsty, charge their phone, or answer a phone call than walk an empty plastic bottle from the bathroom to the recycle bin. 
Battle of the sexes: More men (80%) reported recycling their empty bathroom bottles than women (74%).
 
Unilever can’t do this alone, and so the company has introduced the Unilever BrightFuture initiative. What began as Project Sunlight in 2013 has evolved into a larger movement designed to bring Unilever’s purpose to life and inspire Americans to take small actions that add up to a big difference – whether that’s wasting less, sharing more, turning off the tap, turning on community activism or, simply, recycling – because everyone has a role to play in creating a brighter future.
 
Unilever needs help from America to make this change a reality, and is asking people nationwide to step up and join the bathroom recycling movement. Go to brightfuture.unilever.us to learn more, or share a photo of your bathroom recyclables on Twitter or Instagram using #ReimagineThat and #Sweeps for a chance to win reimagined recycled prizes. Daily and grand prizes range from Unilever beauty kits to goods made from recycled plastics like an umbrella or a backpack. By taking simple steps at home – like recycling –Americans can also help the environment and address climate change.
 
Wouldn't you like to help Unilever get more people in America recycling and helping to make a change?  That would be awesome... and not only for now, but by recycling, we are teaching our children and they will do it as they get older as well!  
To help get people motivated to shoot for a Bright Future and RECYCLE, Unilever is hosting a sweepstakes!  (Make sure to click and read the official rules before entering!) 
Highlights for Sweepstakes:
·       Timing: April 29 – June 9

  1. We recycle, reuse, and compost. :) We only put out on the curb 1 or 2 trash bags a week.

  2. I recycle. We have a decorative bin in the kitchen too for cans and bottles. I'm headed over to check out the sweeps. I like the ones that have daily prizes. :)

  3. Travis has this new thing: He's collecting caps (because they can't be recycled). He A) Going to use them in art, or B) Going to give them to an artist in the area that uses found objects in his art.
