JMDA recycling mission gains industry support

JMDA’s ongoing mission to raise awareness and support for finding a viable child car seat recycling scheme has gained support from a number of leading names in the nursery industry.

Following on from the recent interview with the BBC, JMDA Design isnow in talks with Cosatto, Mainetti and Smyths Toys, to help address the problem of car seat recycling, with the aim of moving the project forward.

“As an established supplier of child car seats, here at Cosatto, we have followed closely the work that JMDA have done to try and resolve the issue of millions of disused car seats going into landfill,” stated ceo Andrew Kluge.

“It is a thorny problem with numerous challenges to make it work commercially without affecting the product cost to the consumer.  The Cosatto team is passionately committed to finding a way to crack this problem and are actively engaged with various parties to make recycling these old seats a reality. Watch this space!”

A statement from Mainetti shows the company is already actively addressing an efficient car seat recycling scheme. “CarGoSeat addressed sustainability by ensuring thought was taken into account from product design stage. The impact of consumer products on the environment is a major parental concern and Mainetti wanted to change the way car seats are traditionally disposed of. ”

It continued: “When families have outgrown the need for the seat, we have a free of charge service already in place, where we take full care of recycling, reducing the impact on the environment while tackling an important concern over landfill and freeing space in garages up and down the country!”

As support from the industry grows, JMDA Design remains positive that car seat recycling will soon be common practice and help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.
