DON’T BIN THE BREAD-TAGS!! DONATE THEM!!!
Who would have known that those little plastic breadtags that we throw away can be useful to someone. Well, it can….if you collect them, instead of binning them, you can help a disabled person to get his or her very own wheelchair. You may wonder how this is possible. Well, the Sweethearts is a non-profit organization that collaborates with companies like Interwaste, The Polystyrene Recycling Company and Zibo in order to recycle these little plastic tags (and bottle tops). In exchange for 15kg bread-tags or 150kg bottle tops, the Sweethearts gets a wheelchair, which they then hand over to a disabled person who would otherwise be unable to afford this luxury (or, in my opinion, necessity).
So far the sweethearts have collected 1200 kg bread tags and 4500 kg bottle tops and provided 94 wheelchairs to people across South Africa.
