BioBall from Mondo Toys

Italian toymaker launches new BioBall and ReNewToys collections as it looks to do its bit in teaching respect for the environment. The BioBall is 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. Meanwhile, ReNewToys is a new set of beach products – including buckets, rakes and spades – which have been created using recycled materials coming from the pre-consumer food chain. Food grade plastics cannot contain dyes or other additives which are deemed harmful to humans, enhancing the chemical safety of Mondo’s toys. Both of the new 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 efficient and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
