You wanna hear something sick? Approximately 500,000 pinatas are being bought, beaten by children and then thoughtlessly tossed into our landfills every year. 500,000! And you know what’s worse?… For the next 10 years the projected demand for pinatas is expected to grow by 17% per year*.

We’re proud to feature this new recycled, reusable and sustainable ‘green’ pinata from Scussel Reusable Pinatas & Adult Diapers Corp.

There are families with 3 or 4 kids, and they buy separate pinatas for each birthday… that’s gotta stop. “The attitude that things are disposable is very 20th century,” says Art Melton. “Reusable pinatas are the future – if not for yourself, then do it for the children.” Pedro “The Reusable” Piñata is just in time.

Reusable PiñataThe anticipated savings from a reusable pinata is expected to exceed $40 over a lifetime, says Steve Scussel, inventor. “I sit in the park and watch these children’s parties where the parents will obliviously cast aside a pinata carcass, unaware of the global impact of their waste… freakin’ makes me sick.”

This is the Last Pinata You Will Ever Buy!

The GreatInventions Green campaign is more than a marketing ploy. Look for more green products from us soon, including: The Trucker’s Friend (compostable toilet without the pit stop), Eternal Floss (the reusable dental floss you never throw away), and Baby’s First Eco-Dolly (making use of those nasty old car tires).
