TerraCycle has partnered with Sanofi Consumer Healthcare, makers of the Gold Bond, Cortizone-10 and Selsun Blue brands, to launch two national recycling programs.

Through this partnership, consumers can recycle their empty Gold Bond, Cortizone-10 and Selsun Blue personal care product packaging and aerosol containers in two different ways:

  1. The Gold Bond, Cortizone-10, and Selsun Blue Recycling Program recycles all plastic tubes, dark plastic bottles, cartons, tubs, sticks, pumps and caps from Gold Bond, Cortizone-10 and Selsun Blue.

  2. The Gold Bond Aerosol Recycling program takes all empty Gold Bond aerosol spray cans to be recycled.

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.

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.

TerraCycle CEO and founder, Tom Szaky, said, “Skin care: 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. 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.”
