Things Recycled Plastics can be turned into!

When you throw something into the bin, do you wonder how amazing it could have been if it were recyclable? And for those of you who do recycle, do you ever wonder what your items will become later in life?

Recycling is easy.  Why add stuff to landfill when you can be helping people gain something new? Shampoo bottles, bleach bottles… they can all be recycled. For more information on recycling visit the awesome vicfoldrecyclers website which is packed with facts, figures and ideas to get your head around.

Five things you didn’t know plastics could be turned into.

    Only a bleating fleece

1.  Who’d have thought that your beverage drinks bottle could keep you warm in the chilly harmattan months? Yes you heard us right – 25 recycled plastic drinks bottles make 1 fleece top!

    I can’t believe it’s not…

2.  Recycled materials from plastics like margarine tubs can be used to make plastic paint pots. You can thank your toast for the lovely magnolia colour in your lounge and corridor.

    Today’s the day the teddy bears have…

3.  Coleslaw & Pasta salad make great additions to picnics . So do the clear tubs they come in, simply rinse and recycle them afterwards & you could be parking your bum on a picnic bench made from these!

    Super Eagles Jersey

4.  Amazingly football shirts can be made from recycled plastic (now all we need is to recycle that AFCON 2013 winning spirit!)

    Not quite kicking the bucket

5.  When you recycle your empty shampoo and shower gel bottles you’re giving them the chance to live again…and again. Perhaps as more plastic bottles, or even as a bucket!

How do you recycle at vicfold? Do you export or have a recycling plant?
