REAPS – From education to reducing household waste, composting and workshops, local Recycling and Environmental Action Planning Society (REAPS) offers so many resources.

Check out REAPS Website.

Environmental Working Group (EWG)  has been around for a long time and provides breakthrough research, resources and education. The Consumer Guide is a great tool to assess and rate products and ingredient toxicity.

Homespun Refillery is collecting oral care products:

  • toothpaste tubes and caps, toothbrushes, toothbrush and toothpaste tube outer packaging and floss containers.

No need to wash them out, however please ensure they are not goopy or wet when dropped off. The preference with toothbrushes is that they are wrapped in newspaper or paper. There is a designated spot for collection in-store or leave them out for order deliveries. 

Not sure if some items not collected at recycling depos can be dropped off somewhere else? There are a few programs in our community collecting these items. For full details refer to the TarraCycle website
