With Earth Day approaching, I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the 4Rs (Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle).
When you look at this brush, what do you see?
An old baby bottle brush that should have been thrown out when baby stopped bottles? Thrown out?!
Didn’t I mean recycled? Well, that would be nice, but unfortunately baby bottle brushes aren’t typically recycled by municipalities…they’re incinerator bound.
So how do you reuse a baby bottle brush when there are no more baby bottles?
Pass it along to someone else in the new baby stage? Sell it at a consignment shop? Hmm…I don’t know what things are like in your neck of the woods, but here in Bethesda, the odds of a new Mom buying a used baby bottle brush are just about…nil. Although it’s easy to sanitize a baby bottle brush, used baby bottle brushes just don’t pass the ick test…
So here’s where the 5th R comes in to play….Repurposing….
After all, when the babies are grown, there’s much more time to kick back and enjoy a glass of wine!
What have you repurposed lately?
