i used to empty well my tootpaste,shampoo bottles etc before i throw it. its not only saving money but it also helps to save the environment in my own simple way. if we never make it empy before we throw it the chemicals left will just be wasted and can be consider harmful to environment.

I always make sure to not only empty bottles or cans that I use if their is anything remaining in it, but I also rinse them with warm or even hot water and soap to ensure they are clean before recycling.

I always empty bottles before throwing them away. I never really thought about why though, just thought it was better for them to be all the way gone so i am not wasting anything.
