Have you ever tasted trash?
Thought so, but for some, your old shoe box or your empty tin can, is yummie-yum! Meet our groovy recycling bins and feed them everyday garbage. But who likes what? Try out and see for yourself - their reactions will surely help you figure out each character’s favorites.

But where does all the trash go? Find out and make new products out of the garbage you’ve sorted by playing with the funky recycling machines. Pull the levers, click the buttons, spin the cog wheels and play along with the music. Whatever you produce - a bottle of lemonade, a jar of jam or a can of pinapple rings - it will come in handy. Banja the rabbit throws a picnic for her friends, and you’re invited!

Leftovers and garbage from the picnic is yummie for the hungry recycling bins. Let’s visit them again and do it all over!

GROW RECYCLING is a circular kids app – a play cycle – about recycling. It is foremost a fun game, but also a pedagogic way for kids and their parents to learn about taking care of our planets resources.


• 9 different recycling bin characters

• 6 different machines (all with unique music)
• More than 100 different pieces of garbage
• Language-free
• Kid-friendly interface
• Hand-made environment

• No in-app purchases

• No third-party advertising

“Gro Play really seizes the opportunity to early give children a foundation for learning about sustainability.", says Ingrid Pramling Samuelsson, World president of OMEP and UNESCO Chair man in Early Childhood Education and Sustainable Development.

“Play is not only the most fun way to learn, but also the most powerful. We want to entertain and inspire children and parents. Together we can create a more sustainable future.”, says Patricia Richter, CEO and co-founder of Gro Play.

We are an independent creative studio based in Stockholm, Sweden, that offers eco-educational toys, games and apps.

Love this game!

My kids do a lot of recycling at school so they really like this neat game! What they get to see here, that they don't get to see in school, is the WHOLE cycle. Great job!

Limited replayability even for a little one. Great for a few min though.
