International recycling leader TerraCycle® has partnered with Sanofi Consumer Healthcare®, makers of Gold Bond®, Cortizone-10® and Selsun Blue® brands, to launch two national recycling programs for their personal care product packaging and aerosol containers. Through this partnership, consumers are invited to recycle their empty Gold Bond®, Cortizone-10® and Selsun Blue® packaging in two ways:
- The Gold Bond® Aerosol Recycling program: Consumers who wish to recycle empty Gold Bond aerosol spray cans are invited to sign up on the program page at https://www.terracycle.com/en-US/brigades/sanofi-aerosol. When ready to ship, follow the provided shipping instructions, download a free shipping label, package the empty aerosol containers in the box of your choice and send it to TerraCycle for recycling
- The Gold Bond®, Cortizone-10®, and Selsun Blue® Recycling Program: To recycle all other Gold Bond® product packaging along with Cortizone-10® and Selsun Blue® packaging, consumers are invited to visit the non-aerosol program page at https://www.terracycle.com/en-US/brigades/sanofi. When ready to ship, simply download a free shipping label, package empty Gold Bond®, Cortizone-10®, and Selsun Blue® product packaging including plastic tubes, dark plastic bottles, cartons, tubs, sticks, pumps and caps in a box of your choice and send it to TerraCycle for recycling.
Once collected, the waste is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables. As an added incentive, for every shipment of waste sent to TerraCycle through either recycling program, consumers earn points that can be used for charity gifts or converted to cash and donated to the non-profit, school or charitable organization of their choice.
“Skincare – it’s a daily routine we all share. We each have our personal preferences as it relates to the brands and products that we use, but we don’t often consider what happens to the packaging once all the product is gone,” said TerraCycle CEO and Founder, Tom Szaky. “With the Gold Bond®, Cortizone-10®, and Selsun Blue® Recycling Program, along with the Gold Bond® Aerosol Recycling program, Sanofi Consumer Healthcare® has considered the end-of-life options for their packaging and partnered with TerraCycle to ensure that it never sees the landfill.”
