It all began with one Bay Area mother, Jane, who began a petition through change.org. Done with her breastfeeding journey, she wanted to recycle her used Medela breast pump so that it did not end up in landfill. When she realized there was no system in place to recycle breast pumps, she called upon Medela to provide a proper recycling solution for old breast pumps. Medela did not ignore her request. Instead, the company responded to the petition, which received more than 2,000 signatures, by creating Medela Recycles.
Since the beginning of the program, more than 1,300 pumps have been recycled. Unique to Medela Recycles, this wonderful program goes even further. Recycled used pumps go towards the donation of brand new hospital-grade Medela Symphony® Preemie+TM Breastpumps and breastfeeding supplies to the Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®).
To celebrate the victory of this passionate mother, Medela is hosting a victory party---and you can join! On April 9th, 2015 from 5 to 7 pm you can participate in fun and festivities with Medela in San Francisco. Medela has set an ambitious goal to recycle 12,000 throughout 2015 to reduce waste and protect the environment through this initiative. Reaching their goal of 12k will also allow them to donate more pumps each month to the Ronald McDonald House. You can bring your used Medela breast pump to the victory party, knowing that it doesn't only do good for the environment, but also does good for the community! Now for all the details:
