We can all use these easy tips to recycling at home to make the world a cleaner place. A great start for every room is to only purchase as many products as you can that are eco-friendly or recyclable. For example, try Energizer’s longest lasting alkaline ever, their new EcoAdvanced batteries. Be guilt free by taking something old and making it new like by trying these new batteries. Get rid of those unused batteries!
Here’s five tips to recycling in your kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen will most likely be your recycling hub so be sure you have separate bins for your recyclables and waste.
1. Recycle in the Kitchen – Be sure you are recycling easy things like cans, plastic and glass bottles, paper and cardboard. Also, be sure you wash out any residue in glass or plastic bottles. Yes, this makes an extra step but it is important to the recycling process.
Here’s some other things we should be recycling in our kitchen:
- foot tins
- sauce jars
- cleaning bottles, such as dish soap
- empty aerosols
2. Recycle in the Living Room – I’m sure you have a magazine holder or end table that is catching all those old magazines and newspapers. Why not clean those out and recycle them? You can also recycle cardboard tissue boxes. My husband tends to leave mail by his chair. Recycle it!
3. Recycle in the Bedroom – In the bedroom, you can recycle cardboard and paper tags off new clothes and broken plastic hangers. Don’t forget any magazines or newspapers that may have made their way to the bedroom. Recycle cardboard packaging from makeup, perfume and other toiletries.
4. Recycle in the Bathroom – It might be a good idea to keep a recycling bin in your bathroom as well as the kitchen. This will be an easy reminder to recycle everything in all the rooms in your house. Recycle these items in the bathroom:
- shampoo and other bottles from the shower or bath tub.
- soap dispensers
- cleaning bottles
- cardboard packing
- tissues boxes
- toilet paper roll cardboard cores
- aerosol cans
5. Recycle in the Garage – There’s lots of nasty chemicals and other things in the garage that are hard on our precious environment. Batteries are something we use a lot of in our household. We love the Energizer’s new EcoAdvanced batteries, available in AA and AAA. The Energizer EcoAdvanced holds up to 12 years in storage. This is the first battery on the market to use recycled batteries/materials. These are Energizer’s longest lasting alkaline ever. I love that I can grab these new batteries while I’m at Walmart. Plus, there’s always a great selection of these near the checkout aisles. Learn more about the EcoAdvanced batteries at BringingInnovation.net.
Tip: Be sure any cans or bottles are empty before recycling.
