Recycle Your Yogurt

I just learned something very cool... you can recycle your yogurt containers (and other #5 plastics) to be made into toothbrushes and razor handles by dropping them off at your closest Whole Foods Market.  I have always hated the fact that we are filling up landfills with lots of reusable plastics because they don't have the right number on the bottom.  Well, now I feel a little better about this issue because companies like Gimme 5 is working to get people to recycle these precious items.

So the next time you, your child, or anyone else for that matter, is about to toss another yogurt container into the trash... grab it, rinse it, and recycle it.  The planet, and I, thank you immensely.

To locate a drop off location near you follow this link.

By the way, I realize I haven't posted anything in quite some time.  I'll get back to it ASAP.  And I also realize that this is like my 5th post about yogurt.  haha.

Oh, and I was not compensated in any way, shape, or form for writing this blog post.  I simply would like to preserve the planet for my children (and their's) to enjoy.  I think you should do the same.  Thanks.

Thanks so much for the info! I needed another reason to head to Whole Foods anyway. ;)


Check out Frame It Friday! over at Loving This Mom Stuff!
I'd love to see some of your child's artwork!

Thanks Mary Ellen. I just dropped off a whole bunch of yogurt containers and plastic Gerber babyfood containers thanks to this post!
