BioBall kicks off Mondo’s new eco-friendly ranges

Published on: 26th April 2021

Mondo has launched the eco-friendly BioBall and the ReNewToys series, representing the company’s new corporate sustainability policy.

Mondo believes that to create lasting change, it is vital that we educate children and show them how to look after the environment. This will enable them, in turn, to 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, providing a simple, fun and direct way to teach respect
for the environment.

Mondo says its BioBall is the only ball made with a new bio-based formula, which replaces 50% of fossil-derived substances with a renewably sourced plant derivative. The new formula not only makes the product the first ‘green’ ball, but also contributes to improving its flexibility and, consequently, its playability. Available in many options, 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.

Mondo is also pleased to announce its ReNewToys range, a brand-new collection of beach products that includes buckets, rakes, spades and more, all manufactured using recycled materials from the pre-consumer food chain. Food grade plastics do not contain dyes or other additives deemed harmful to humans, therefore enhancing the chemical safety of the toys. The company says that ReNewToys is the ideal choice for playing outdoors and learning to play while simultaneously taking care of our coastlines.

Mondo is a multinational group with over 70 years of experience in the toy market. The group has invested heavily in research and development and committed itself proactively to find concrete and useful solutions to substitute plastic materials with environmentally sustainable options. Both projects represent Mondo’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.
