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 not… 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 humankind… which could also solve the problem of disposable plastic.
If you live in the USA: “Through Tom’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
