If you’re a bath and beauty hoarder…I mean lover like me, chances are your bathroom is overrun with products. There’s no denying that trying new products is exhilarating, but those beauty buys eventually become empty plastic bottles cluttering your space. Do yourself and the environment a favor by clearing them out and properly recycling.
Unilever, the company behind some of our favorite brands such as Dove, Vaseline and Motions, has teamed up with Keep America Beautiful to launch “Rinse. Recycle. Reimagine.“—a campaign created to encourage and motivate product lovers like us to recycle. Unilever uncovered survey findings that suggest that the average American has at least 8 empty bottles lying around their bathroom at any given time—now that’s a lot of plastic that can be repurposed!
There’s a social component to the initiative too. Unilever is asking us to snap a pic of empty bath and beauty bottles and share them on Twitter and Instagram using #ReimagineThat and #Sweeps for a chance to win some cool prizes.
Being a beauty editor, it’s no surprise that I have TONS of products that are dying to have a date with the recycling bin and this campaign is just the inspiration I needed to take action.
So gather up those empty lotion, shampoo and body wash bottles and get to decluttering all while helping to persevere our beautiful earth!
