Repurposing Bamboo Toothbrushes

If you have switched to compostable bamboo toothbrushes, what do you do with them at the end of their life? 

Since here in Brevard County we don't have a
composting program, you may repurpose your bamboo toothbrush into a plant label instead of throwing it away! 

Just write directly on the handle with a permanent marker after you've snapped off the bristles and there you have it; a plant label ready for your yard.

Pretty cool idea, right?

Bubble Wrap?

Did you know that Publix accepts "bubble wrap and air pillows"  in with plastic bags?

Yes, they do!

If you do not have use for extra shipping material and no local UPS stores that would like to have them for reuse, you may recycle your bubble wrap at Publix.

They accept that and everything else listed by WRAP Recycling Action Program (WRAP) on their website.

WRAP is a national public awareness and outreach initiative designed to make plastic film – including wraps, bags, and flexible packaging – a commonly recycled material with a strong and ever-growing recycling rate.

So, don't throw it away! Reuse or recycle your bubble wrap to help divert more from our landfills.
