The Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies is committed to taking care of the natural resources we are privileged to use. With more than 9 billion people expected to be living in the world by 2050, and natural resources being consumed faster than the planet can replenish, caring for the planet that cares for us has never been more important.

That’s one reason why Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health became a signatory to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation New Plastics Economy Global Commitment.

We know our daily lives can be busy, and that even the simplest tasks can fall off our to-do lists. Our CARE TO RECYCLE® program aims to remind and encourage people to recycle items used in the bathroom – helping us drive a more circular economy. You can help ‘close the loop’ by appropriately recycling your personal care packages once they are empty. Our website and Pinterest pages provide tips, tricks and how-to guides for upping your recycling game and getting your whole family involved.
