The Dirty Secret Behind Recycling Shampoo Bottles

The Dirty Secret Behind Recycling Shampoo Bottles

Prepare to be stunned. What if I told you that the recycling bin you diligently fill with empty shampoo bottles may not be the eco-savior you thought it was? Brace yourself for a revelation that will shake the very foundation of your environmental beliefs.

While you may think that recycling plastic bottles alleviates environmental harm, the harsh reality tells a different story. Despite our best intentions, a staggering 552 million shampoo bottles find their final resting place in landfills each year. That's enough plastic to cover 1,164 football fields, and it takes a mind-boggling 450 years for these bottles to decompose. Let that sink in for a moment.

But wait, it gets worse. According to data from a 2016 census by Euromonitor, only 50% of plastic bottles are even collected for recycling. And out of those, a mere 7% are actually recycled into new bottles. Yes – the majority of plastic bottles we diligently toss into the recycling bin end up languishing in landfills, polluting our planet for centuries to come.
