Saving 400 Million Plastic Bread Tags From Entering Landfill!
It’s hard to imagine tiny bread tags causing mountains of waste, but, it’s estimated that the rollout of cardboard bread tags in SA, VIC and NSW will prevent 100 million plastic bread tags from entering landfill! Plus, once the rollout is completed across Australia and New Zealand, Tip Top estimates that 400 million single-use plastic bread tags will be removed every year. That’s huge!
Planet Ark’s Deputy CEO, Rebecca Gilling, says that plastic bread tags are problematic in recycling and waste streams. “For this reason, Planet Ark is pleased to see Tip Top designing out waste by replacing plastic bread tags with a circular solution made from 100% recycled cardboard”. To recycle your cardboard bread tags, simply tuck the tag inside other paper or cardboard products and pop it into your kerbside recycling bin.
