World Ocean’s Day – Upcycling Ideas [Infographic]

The World Ocean’s Day Youth Advisory Council is extremely excited to present to you this Upcycling Guidebook for World Ocean’s Day.

The term upcycling is also known as “creative reuse”. By reusing plastic, upcycling helps reduce the amount of plastic that can end up in the environment and may help us avoid purchasing new plastic products.

Microbiome & Oral Health Tips [Visual]

We can all agree taking care of our teeth and gums is important. After all, we only get one set of permanent choppers and we need to keep them healthy. The question is, whatโ€™s the best way to care for them? The prevailing theory for most of the last century was that gum disease and cavities were caused by bacteria, and we needed to banish the bacteria to prevent oral disease.

A surprising number of common practices and over-the-counter products arenโ€™t actually backed up by evidence. Talk to your dentist, do your own research, and pay attention to your own experience to determine the best methods for caring for your teeth and gums.

Reusing Deodorant containers + DIY Recipe

Deodorants are (for many of us) a must-have and most of times they come in plastic containers, some in glass with the cap and roll-on made of plastic or in spray cans. If you have the time to DIY your deo we’re sharing below a recipe (if you make your own, please share with us your experience). If notโ€ฆ there are some plastic-free options you can purchase (in tin or glass containers with natural ingredients), just ask in your local bulk shop. While making this round-up of ideas on how to Repurpose the empty Deo Containers, we read about a refillable deo by humankindโ€ฆ which could also solve the problem of disposable plastic.

If you live in the USA: “Through Tomโ€™s of Maine Natural Care Brigade, you can fill a box with any brand of deodorant tubes, soap containers and other bathroom leftovers and mail it back to Terracycle for recycling. Some deodorant tubes may also be accepted through municipal curbside or drop-off programs in your area. To determine the materials from which your tubes are made, start by checking the bottom of the tube for the numbered plastic. Before recycling in your curbside bin, remove the dial from the bottom of the tube and be sure to rinse out your tubes with warm water and soap to remove any residual product.” – PC
