The Polystyrene Council of SA is playing a leading role in the recycling of Polystyrene - the # 6 Plastic. Few people know, but Polystyrene has amazing recycling properties. If we care to recycle, polystyrene can be recycled up to 20 times.
One initiative which really is simple to do and requires extremely little effort on our part as consumers is the Bread Tag program.
So how do we participate? Quite simply, through your local community, school, church group or whatever, start collecting your bread tags today. Not only do we make a positive impact on our environment by helping this highly common waste product avoid landfill, but for every 1kg you will receive R5.00.
The Bread Tags for Wheelchairs Project already has over 100 coordinators in different communities all over South Africa.
