Did you know, without exception, recycling is the top action everyone could do to improve the earth, the economy and prevent waste from going into the ocean? Seriously, we throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour, and that includes the bottles that house our face wash, shampoo, and conditioner. Paper? We throw enough paper away each year to build a 12-foot wall from Seattle to NY. The amount of plastic, glass, paper and food we throw away is astounding, considering how beneficial recycling is. With enough awareness, we can do something that benefits the earth while still meeting our aesthetic needs. Instead of trashing your empty beauty containers, consider recycling. One product line that does their part is the Neutrogena Naturals collection. Keep reading to find out how the brand does their part, what products are featured in the collection, a mini review on how to recycle and a giveaway!

How you can do your part
It’s simple, recycle! Most of the materials in your home like paper, plastic, glass, even electronic equipment can be recycled. Find a local recycling facility near you and learn how to use it. You can also show the earth some love by buying products that can be recycled, buy products made from recycled material, plant a tree, and participate in local community projects that keep neighborhoods clean. If you do not have time to clean, donate money or give feedback and/or a high five! Here’s a full article from the EPA on how to recycle common recyclables.
