Wonder Recycling rewards returns to convert soft plastics into food grade plastic

Wonder Recycling

Wonder has announced the return of the Wonder Recycling Rewards program for a third year in a row – a fun and easy recycling program for Aussie schools to participate in.

Through a new partnership with Victorian based recycling organisation APR Plastics, Wonder is making strides in developing a circular solution for their bread bags, and creating a more sustainable future for generations to come.

APR Plastics helps Wonder in their mission of creating a circular economy for soft plastics through the use of their ‘WASTX’ pyrolysis technology that breaks down the plastic waste collected to create an oil that can be used to create new food grade plastics.

For Aussies, saving a bread bag from landfill might seem like a small action, but it can have a huge impact on the environment.

The Wonder Recycle Rewards program encourages Aussie schools to recycle bread bags that might otherwise go to landfill in return for points for their efforts.

Points can be redeemed on new sports equipment that kids can play with – championing active play for kids.

“At Wonder, we’ve pledged to create a better future for Aussie kids to grow and thrive in. That’s why we’re thrilled to be bringing back the Wonder Recycling Rewards program for another year giving Aussie kids a chance to do good for the world whilst having fun,” said portfolio and marketing director, Christine Fung.

“It’s fantastic to be working with Wonder to continue the development of our circular economy,” added Advanced Pyrolysis executive at APR Plastics, Logan Thorpe.

“Today we took a positive first step in reducing soft plastic headed for landfill and we look forward to developing our partnership with them and driving further success for the Wonder Recycling Rewards program.”

To get involved, Aussie families can encourage their children’s schools to visit the Wonder website for more information and to sign up.

Once a school has signed up, they will receive everything they need to get started – it’s that easy! The registration period for Wonder Recycling Rewards ends on the 31st of March, 2023.
