For the past 3 years I have been tossing them into a mug and forgetting about them. Until the mug overflowed.
|My collection of plastic bag tags - I reckon there|
could be close to 350 - 400 of them
So I went searching the Net for what I could do with them / what they could be used for. And came across this site :
|The Sweetheart Foundation collection point|
map which promotes the collection of bread tags
The used bread tags / polystyrene is recycled into wheelchairs / Tutu Desks and Wonderbags. Or decor items, beads, or even buildings for the informal sector.
Happily there is a collection point in Swellendam, so I have dropped off my tags. All it takes is 1 000 000 tags and someone gains a wheelchair.
This link also has links to where you can recycle anything from batteries, cell phones, eye wear, x-rays, cfl's, printer cartridges, etc.
Reckon with these links there is no excuse for anyone to throw anything into landfill.
