Colour Sorters’ Morning Tea

On 12 March we got the chance to say thank you to our amazing team of colour sorters in Adelaide who between them sorted more than 1 tonne of bread tags in 2020 – what an effort!

Australia Day Award

Jenny Cooper, who leads our Aussie Bread Tags team, was honoured to be awarded Citizen of the Year by her local council, Burnside, during the 2021 Australia Day event.

7.30 Report

Did you see us on the 7.30 Report on 4 Jan 2021? Click below to view the segment (it was filmed in 2019, so we have grown significantly since then, but the story is the same).


Graeme (on the left) was so excited to receive his wheelchair, he wouldn’t get out of it all day! Graeme lives in Jansenville, inland in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa, at Whitlock’s Care Centre.

Roana and Rotary

Roana is the recipient of the 10th wheelchair provided using funds from recycling Aussie Bread Tags. This is the first wheelchair provided via our new partnership with Rotary Algoa Bay in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. We are excited to be working with Rotary in this area as they have established contacts in disability and aged care services and are very enthusiastic about our program. We are hoping this is the first of many wheelchairs we can fund in this region.

2 Tonnes Recycled!

Yoo hoo! We have recycled 2 tonnes of bread tags since we started recycling in Australia in February 2019. That’s a lot of pesky little tags (about 5.4 million of them) saved from landfill. Well done to everyone who is doing their bit to make it happen! ♻️🎖💚

Steven’s Wheelchair

Steven is the 7th recipient of a wheelchair funded by Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs. He is a stroke victim living in Philippi in the Western Cape, South Africa. His wheelchair was organised through the the Philippi Economic Development Initiative, who promote economic and social renewal in the area.


Elisna is Smiling

We have just received the photo of our latest wheelchair recipient. Her name is Elisna and she lives in residential care in Vredendal in South Africa, which is about 350km north of Cape Town. She was very excited when she saw her chair after a long wait for one. Keep those bread tags coming!


150kg haul!

This month we are sending 150kg (about 420,000!) bread tags off for recycling into beautiful things at Transmutation – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle in Robe. A big shout out to all our collectors, collection point hosts, colour sorters and H.F Dicker & Son pty.ltd transport for making it all happen.

Antoni’s Wheelchair

Some good news we could all do with right now …..
Our latest South African wheelchair recipient is Antoni. Antoni required a specialised wheelchair and his Mum and her community collected large amounts of plastic for recycling in order to supplement our contribution. We hope the wheelchair will make their family’s life a little easier, especially at this difficult time.
