Recyclable plastics are super common in households and it's a great place to start when becoming a recycler! Items in this category include: water and soda bottles, detergent containers, milk and water gallons and any other container with a number 1 or 2 recycle symbol on the bottom.
One great way to combat the usage of so many plastic water bottles is to buy a reusable one. These have become so popular and they are super easy to find. They come in different shapes and sizes with an endless array of designs to choose from!

Deciding to recycle your plastics also helps out with that mound of shopping bags, you know what I'm talking about! Those plastic grocery bags seem to multiply at my house. One way to reuse those is by lining small trash cans with them, such as one in the bathroom or office. When there are just too many of those bags lying around and you need to clean them out, consider checking with local stores, such as Walmart, for their policy on accepting them.
