Please Join Us – Endura Reuses / Recycles Its Plastic Packaging

Endura Dealer Update

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we reuse / recycle our packaging. We invite you to help us by returning all your Endura clear poly bags with your Stock Rotation.

What packaging can be returned for reuse/ recycling?
· Clear poly bags, LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene) bags marked recycle LDPE 4. All Endura clear product bags are of this quality. These bags must be either (A) entirely clear or (B) clear with printing. The unprinted bags can be chemically recycled to a higher grade of virgin LDPE but clear bags with print are still suitable for recycling.
· Silica gel moisture management pouches.

Why are we doing this?
Sustainability is at our core and whilst we recognise this initiative is just one small step and that we have far more to do, we hope you will join us with this effort. By working together to reduce the environmental impact of our industry, we can set cycling’s environmental credentials as best in class and inspire others.

What do I need to do to help?
· Return your Endura LDPE bags, by including them in with your next Stock Rotation, along with any silica gel pouches. Simply place all bags/ pouches into a bag(s) and put them in the box with your Stock Rotation. Please keep the bags flat to allow us to quickly sort the reusable from the recyclable. Ideally please separate entirely clear bags from those that have print on them. We’ll do the rest.
· Dedicate a box to storing up these LDPE poly bags through the season, so that you have a good stash ready to return with your future Stock Rotations.

Can I return clear poly bags from other brands to Endura?
Yes, we’re happy to also receive all clear poly bags (plain or with some print) regardless of their origin. Please do not send us opaque bags of any colour or bags that have tape or other materials attached to them as we can’t recycle these.

What happens to the returned bags?
Reuse is the best form of recycling and if possible, we will always reuse.
Bags that can’t be reused will be chemically recycled to produce new clear bags or other LDPE products, in a closed loop process.
