Soft Plastics Recycling

Mother Earth is proud to support  the soft plastics recycling initiative  - The Love NZ Soft Plastics Programme is about informing New Zealanders about how to keep plastic bags and packaging out of landfill.

Collect all the soft plastics which you use at home, make sure the bags are empty and dry and drop them into the Love NZ Soft Plastics Recycling bins at participating stores.

Once the soft plastics are collected they are sent back to Australia where they are made into park benches and fitness circuits for playgrounds until there are facilities in NZ  that can process these products.

"Soft Plastics" refers to any plastic that can be scrunched up into a ball, for example : bread bags, frozen food bags, toilet paper packaging, confectionery and biscuit wrap, chip bags, pasta and rice bags, courier envelopes, shopping bags etc

Remember.. Collect (your soft plastic packaging); Drop (at participating stores) and  Recycle.

It’s as easy as that!
