As a sustainability-focused organisation, RollsPack is proud to partner with the REDcycle program, an initiative designed to recover and recycle plastics that would otherwise go to into landfill.
The program is a partnership between manufacturers, retailers and consumers. The REDcycle team place specially marked bins at Coles & Woolworths supermarkets which consumers can drop their soft plastics into. The collected products are returned to RED Group’s facility for processing then delivered to Australian manufacturer Replas where it is transformed. The resulting recycled-plastic products are extremely robust, as well as water and termite resistant. They won’t crack, splinter or rot and will never need painting.
What Belongs In REDcycle?
People often pick up a piece of plastic and wonder what is and isn’t accepted by REDcycle and the answer lies in the scrunch test. If the plastic can be scrunched up into a ball, then it belongs in a REDcycle drop off bin. If it cannot then it should be placed in your regular recycling bin.
Our Sustainable Initiatives
This partnership is the latest evolution in our quest to become one of the most sustainability-focused packaging organisations in the world. Our other initiatives include:
- Solar panels which make our manufacturing facility 100% energy efficient during daylight hours
- Making satchels which can be returned so we can dispatch them for recycling
- Our use of smart self-aligning printing technology (significantly reducing wastage)
- Recycling the heat generated by our machines
- Recycling all our waste
- Our use of solventless lamination
- Being a signatory for the Australian Packaging Covenant
We will continue to search for and implement the most sustainable practices possible as part of our commitment to helping the global community protect our environment.
