When you get a cut or scrape, it's imperative to keep it clean and protect it by using a bandage. But did you know the majority of bandages are made from plastic and are not biodegradable (and obviously not recyclable)? When shopping for bandages for your first-aid kit, consider alternatives like bamboo fiber, natural latex (actually tapped from a rubber tree, not synthetic) and "fabric" bandages made with lightweight natural fibers. They'll do the same job as conventional bandages and are biodegradable.
