Affordable swaps - Recycle your aerosols
High Street Buy
Did you know that these can be recycled?
Many local authorities in the UK offer recycling collection for aerosols, including kerbside collection.
While not totally plastic-free, for items like deodorant, swapping to an aerosol deodorant might be a good way to reduce your plastic waste.
Many plastic-free deodorants, while they may be better for your health, are often more expensive or have a high upfront cost. Switching to a container which is at least recyclable might be a good affordable option.
Aerosols are made from either tinplated steel or aluminium. They should be completely empty before recycling and any lids should be removed.
Try to find a 'compressed' aerosol option to reduce CO2 emissions.
And look for designs that don't have a separate plastic lid - or if they do take these to your local LUSH store for recycling.
