We are pausing our program for the time being
We have not only reached our target of 2,000,000 caps, but we have surpassed it – by a huge margin! We have collected 5,000,000 in Victoria alone. Thank you to everyone who donated
Because of the huge number of caps donated, we are pausing this program for the time being. We are now awaiting another 5-10 million tops collected from interstate for which transportation is currently being organised to Victoria.
Next to plastic bags, plastic bottle tops are one of the top polluters of the oceans and environment. They create micro beads which enter the food chain and pollute our beaches . With this project, with the help of Rotary and Lions, we will recycle millions of bottle tops and transform them into Disability Aids, STEM training tools, and Aged Care gadgets.
Unfortunately not all tops are created equal. Our team sort, clean and prepare the tops but of each million, probably only 20% to 50% of the tops will be used solely for the filament but the rest will not be wasted. We are working on a variety of products at various sites including outdoor tiles, portable disability ramps, slug traps and so much more.
