Danny Seo's Do Just One Thing

May 5: While many personal care products like shampoo, conditione­r and body lotion come packaged in plastic containers that are easily recyclable (usually marked with a No. 1 or No. 2 on the bottom), the pumps that come with them are not. The plastic pump may look and feel like the same type of plastic as the bottle, but it's actually made from a variety of materials. Different components made from different types of plastic and metal go into engineerin­g the pumps, so they should always be removed and discarded before recycling the bottle in your curbside bins.
