Little Tags Make a Big Impact
Bread tags come in many shapes, sizes and colors. Made of High Impact Polystyrene they have a good recycling value. A bread bag holds 1 kg of tags and it takes 200 kg of tags to bring in enough money to buy one wheelchair. Please be sure not to put any other items in with the tags as they cause damage to our buyer’s equipment.
Plastic lids are helping too now!
We are now also collecting plastic lids from milk, juice and water bottles, as well as those from the likes of peanut butter, mayonnaise, margarine and yogurt to add to our funds, but no plastic or other containers please. They do not pay as much for them so it takes 450 kg of tops to raise enough money for a wheelchair.
BUT they go to different buyers and must please be collected separately
Collecting bread tags, even broken ones, and plastic lids makes a difference to our environment too as they are recycled.
You too can make a difference to the lives of people who need a wheelchair.
Save your bread tags and plastic tops and get your families and friends to do so too.
Set up a collection point in your office, at your church, school, or college.
If you have a collection point, let us know so that we can add it to our map.
Bread tags (but not bottle tops) are being collected in Australia, New Zealand and Canada for us too. See below for more information.
