Whenever I have a tube of something that I like, such as scented lotion or sunscreen, I don’t toss it out when it’s “empty…” because it usually isn’t. It’s often really surprising just how much is left inside the package, even though you can no longer squeeze it out.
I got this tube of Bodycology lotion as a gift, and it’s got such a nice scent that I was a little sad when I reached the bottom of the tube. From past experiences, though, I know that there’s often a lot of product left inside a package like this. I took a pair of scissors and cut the end of the tube off…
There was quite a bit of lotion inside! In fact, I’ve been using this for the past four days now, and there’s still a fair amount in there.
As I use up the lotion near the top of the tube, I just cut another piece of the tube off:
Obviously, you wouldn’t want to do this with a tube of something you’re taking with you and not leaving sit upright all day, but think about it — this lotion was “empty” when I cut it open. Something to think about — whether we use all the ounces inside a product or not, we are paying for all of what’s in there. Why not use it?
