DISCLOSURE: This giveaway is sponsored by Bloggin' Mamas.
I bet many of us recycle. We put our plastic bottles in the blue bin and cardboard boxes in the yellow bin.
I bet when you think plastic - water bottles and milk jugs come to mind. When you think cardboard - cereal boxes and paper come to mind. But what about your personal hygiene products? Like shampoo and lotion bottles, toilet paper rolls and toothpaste and soap boxes.
I'll admit. Before writing this article, I really never thought about recycling those items. Don't ask me why, it just never occurred to me. What about you?
To raise awareness about all of these items that can be recycled, I've teamed up with Bloggin' Mamas to support the Ad Council and Keep America Beautiful, the national nonprofit organization, who recently launched their newest public service advertising campaign called "I Want to Be Recycled." The campaign uses a series of ads focused on recycling in the bathroom, in hopes of inspiring us to do the same.
To help further spread the word about this campaign, Bloggin' Mamas is giving away a $100 Amazon gift card. Keep reading to find out how to enter.
According to a recent study conducted for the Ad Council, 52% of Americans don’t know which items can be recycled in the bathroom. And only 10% of Americans have a recycling bin in their bathroom, compared to the 45% who have them in the kitchen.
That’s why the “I Want To Be Recycled” campaign has partnered with Vevo’s Do It YourSelfie with Tess & Eva, who has recreated the looks from today’s hottest music videos. These two glam experts, known for their DIY hair, makeup and design tips, created a new PSA this Earth Day reminding Americans that those bathroom products deserve to be recycled too!
Check out the quick video they made on how to recycle old clothes into a new bath mat. It's impressive!
Whether it’s hairspray, leave-in conditioner or dry shampoo, many of your favorite beauty products and packaging can take on another life through recycling. For example, your shampoo bottle could be recycled into a hairbrush, or you might find a great new dress made from the recycled plastic of your favorite bottle of lotion.
