GripHero releases bin for plastic to complement hand protection

GripHero's pink plastic bin

GripHero has complemented its new fuel-nozzle mounted hand-protection dispenser with the release of a new range of bright pink plastic recycling bins to help complete the recycling circle.

The bins are being made available to help dispose of GripHero’s anti-static, fully recyclable hand-protection, as well as other plastic.

Commenting on the launch Oli Yeo, designer and managing director of GripHero, said: “We believe in encouraging forecourts to complete the recycling circle.

“Having created a recyclable hand-protection product, we felt it only right to help forecourts collect plastic waste.

“As more people use hand-protection to avoid foul-smelling, fuel contaminated hands and the cross-contamination of viruses such as the flu from fuel pump handles, it is more important than ever to recycle waste on the forecourt. By offering the bins at a significantly discounted rate, we hope to encourage forecourts to put these in to place, winning the goodwill of customers who want to avoid plastic waste finding its way in to the environment and our oceans.”

GripHero claims that by the end of the year more than 500 UK and Ireland forecourts will have its hand protection, with more to follow in 2019.
