    Why would someone who uses cartridges care if it's recycled or not?

    Same reason people who drive SUVs buy organic stuff. It's called marketing.

    LMAO - I'll bet you could get away with some heat shrink wrap from Home Depot and a hair dryer and do the same.

    By the way - where do you take the cartridges and condoms to get them recycled?

    The empty cartridges can be recycled along with any steel cans like food containers and the "condoms" are disposed of like any other defunct inner tube.

    Pfft. Fail.

    Do your market research. Planet bike already comes with one with every $9 co2 inflator purchase. And it comes with a spare cart as well.

    If I bring it in, I take it back out. I recycle the whole works.

    My LBS sells two carts with a styrofoam barrier for about $10. These cost me about a buck apiece on Ebay and the rubber is free. But that's just me; I'm cheap. YMMV.

    Maybe so but I buy 12 gm threadless CO2 cartridges in boxes of 25 in the sporting goods department of any X-mart and one defunct inner tube would provide "condoms" for all of them.

    Not sure I'd want to blast a cartridge with heat.
