Launch of Balloon Recycling Program

Recycling is definitely a strong trend: In July, the toy and consumer products manufacturer Zuru Inc., which started in New Zealand and is now headquartered in Hong Kong, has announced the “Bunch O Balloons Recycling Program” in cooperation with the waste management company TerraCycle.

“The partnership encourages consumers to think ‘green’ and recycle 100 percent of their used balloon plastics and packaging,” the producer emphasized. Beginning in September this year, all “Bunch O Balloons” products in the USA, Canada, U.K., Australia and New Zealand would be fully recyclable.

According to the information, consumers will be able to ship or drop off used packaging, balloon pieces and fast-fill stems at TerraCycle recycling stations, “where they will then be processed and recycled into new materials”.
