Bottle Caps: There's Something You Can Do With Them

I bet you didn't know this: if you throw your plastic water bottle into the recycling bin with the cap on it does not get goes in a landfill! Know why? Because the caps found on things like water bottles and other containers cannot be recycled and if they are attached to a recyclable item they deem the whole item unrecyclable. So only throw the actual container in the recycling bin, but do not throw out the caps- there is something you can do with them!

Instead, for an idea of what you can do with your caps, click here.

Not sure if there is an Aveda store or salon near you? Click here. If you do not have a store near you, but you may see me at some point, then save the caps for me and I'll turn them in for you.
