Re: [GreenYes] why people recycle?
Does anyone actually recycle their
toothpaste tubes? I.e. some come in a foil
tube that technically, you could cut open
and wash out.

Does any toothpaste come in a truly
recycleable tube? I mean they may say
'recycleable' on the outside, but does
the recycle center actually take them in
your area?

I ask because the course of this thread
seems to imply that we are 'locked' into
stages of convenience. I recycle as much
as I can - I even rinse my aluminum foil, 
but not my toothpaste tubes.
Anyone else do that?
