Have you ever wondered what you could do to reduce your recycling bin? Pats on the back for being a stellar recycler! I started thinking about this after my bin was brimming and overflowing.
I was so proud of my pile of salvaged waste, but since my garbage service only took recycling every two weeks, it was hard to stay motivated. We sometimes even have to fill up my mother-in-law’s recycling bin when ours gets full! Then I started wondering, what if I could find products that didn’t use plastic to package? Especially considering, there are some products where the plastic can’t be saved for recycling (like toothpaste tubes).
Turns out there are ways to get around using plastic packaging! I am so excited to feature each month, products that eliminate the need for plastic packaging (besides our beloved Norwex products that already diminish plastic use). This series is also a way to plug the Norwex Movement. In 2016, the Norwex Movement hopes to increase awareness about plastics and dangerous chemicals in the home by connecting with other Norwex communities. If you would like to learn more, check out the NorwexMovement.com.
Do you have any products in mind where you would like to “ditch the plastic?” Are there any plastic containers that are a PAIN to clean out? Stay tuned, I have my first product up soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
