Don’t forget to recycle from the bathroom!

31 March 2021


CTPA is pleased to support the new campaign from Recycle Now, #DontBottleIt in the bathroom.


Did you know that we tend to recycle less from the bathroom than from the kitchen?   If we think about the contents of our bathroom cabinet just as we think about recycling in the kitchen, we will be able to recycle much more. 


Recycling plastic, glass, cardboard and other materials from our food and drinks packaging has become second nature, and we often have a dedicated recycling bin in the kitchen.  However, what about the bathroom?  


Packaging plays an important role for the cosmetics and personal care products we use every day in our hygiene, health and wellbeing regimes.  It gives us legally required information, keeps products safe during transport and makes them easy for us to use; but we can forget that cosmetic product packaging can be recycled too. 


CTPA is pleased to support the new campaign from Recycle Now, #DontBottleIt in the bathroom, which has been launched with @clearonplastics. Visit Recycle Now to find top tips on how to recycle from the smallest room in the house!
