It may not seem the most obvious of extra services for a letting agent to provide, but this month, McCartan Lettings in Killay, Swansea, became an official Ella’s Kitchen EllaCycle recycling point.
Managing Director and New Mum Hannah McCartan said “Many families I know and work with love the convenience of Ella’s Kitchen food pouches, but I was shocked to discover the packaging cannot be recycled through curb-side collection. That’s a lot of food pouches going to land fill every day.”
‘We want the very best for our babies and children, and want to feed them healthy, organic meals and snacks – yet the packaging these come in are choking our planet far quicker than any other generation before us.
It might be a very small step towards making our planet a cleaner place for our babies, but it’s a step in the right direction; I have made our McCartan Lettings office on Gower Road in Killay an official EllaCycle drop off point.”
What can be recycled?
It’s not just the Ella’s Kitchen brand you can recycle there. You can take any brand of baby food pouches and pouch caps, and Ella’s Kitchen branded snack wrappers into the office, and they can send them off to be recycled for you.
What is EllaCycle?
Ella’s Kitchen’s pouches and wrappers are made in different ways, so need to be recycled in different ways, too – ways that aren’t currently catered for by curb-side collections. EllaCycle is an initiative of Ella’s Kitchen, aiming to make it easier for parents to recycle more.

For every pouch that is recycled, Ella’s Kitchen will donate 2p towards Hannah’s chosen charity – Singleton Hospital’s NeoNatal Unit.
Why not collect up your pouches over a week and pop them into their office on the main Gower Road in Killay, open between 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. For more information about recycling at work, you can visit the EllaCycle website by clicking here.
