Sustainability? It’s child's play!
One of the biggest problems we face today is the impact of manmade materials on the environment. For example, if you look at pollution in the Mediterranean Sea, 95% of the waste in its waters is plastic. Similar problems are being experienced all around the planet, and the only way these problems can be solved is by implementing real change.
To create lasting change, its vital that we educate children and show them how to look after the environment. They will then become advocates of a major shift in how we treat our planet and help to create an eco friendly future. It is with this idea in mind that Mondo has launched two new green projects: BioBall and ReNewToys.
The new BioBall is the only ball made with a new bio based formula, which replaces 50% of fossil derived substances with a renewable sourced plant derivative. The new formula not only makes it the first green ball, but also contributes to improving its flexibility and, consequently, its playability.
Available in many varieties the new BioBall has been certified ‘OK Bio-Based’ by TÜV Austria, the leading European organic certification body that guarantees the high quality of the renewability of raw materials used.
The company has also announced ReNewToys, a new set of beach products (buckets, rakes, spades and more) built using recycled materials coming from the pre-consumer food chain. Food grade plastics cannot contain dyes or other additives deemed harmful to humans, therefore enhancing the chemical safety of Mondo toys which are often used by toddlers.
ReNewToys is the ideal choice for playing outdoors and learning to play while taking care of our coastlines.
Mondo is a multinational group with over 70 years of experience in the toys market, investing heavily in research and development and committing itself proactively to find concrete and useful solutions to substitute plastic materials with environmentally sustainable options.
Both projects represent the company’s new corporate policy, which sets serious environmental sustainability goals aimed at reducing waste and reusing it as raw material, as well as improving the energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Through its products and its choices, Mondo communicates its respect for nature: a real commitment to effectively contribute to awareness, growth and education of new generations to help the children of today become more aware adults tomorrow.
