Bread Tag Collection

Calling all bread lovers! Whether you’re a wholemeal, seeded grain, gluten free, thick sliced, thin sliced, bun, roll or english muffin type of person, there’s something you all have in common. And we want it!

The bread tags!

Why do we want them?

  1. Because they can’t be properly recycled and are ending up in landfill, causing harm to our native wildlife and wreaking havoc on the marine environment.

  2. Because a charity called Bread Tags For Wheelchairs is reusing them for wonderful things!

Bread Tags for Wheelchairs is a community program where individuals and organisations collect bread tags to be sold to plastics recycling companies (Australia’s company of choice is Transmutation, located in South Australia). There, the bread tags are repurposed into a range of products such as seedling trays, picture frames, door knobs, coat hangers and more. That’s not all though – the money earned from selling the tags is used to buy wheelchairs for people who can’t afford them (purchased through local pharmacies). 

So, bring your bread tags to school and place them in the containers in your child's classroom. They will be regularly collected and taken to drop off points.
