In early June, Replas Peter Patterson and Cheryl Stevens showed the ‘Carbon Cutters’ around the Carrum Downs showroom and gave them a tour through the ‘Bag Cave.’ This group classifies themselves as ‘Neighbours seeking and sharing ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our everyday lives.’ The residents in Princess Hill VIC, meet at the Railway Neighbourhood House on the last Thursday of the month to chat with new members and anyone interested in what they can do to help.
They all took a Product Guide with them to show others the types of products Replas makes and how they can benefit their surrounding community. It was such a pleasure to meet everyday civilians who want to better their environment!
On June 1st, Nossal High School students took a tour through our Carrum Downs showroom and educational tour through our ‘Bag Cave’ that explains all things recycled plastic and Replas. Ben McCulloch, a Replas Sales Consultant, took the students around and explained a bit of the background on Replas. While explaining, Ben gave the students a few different samples of our products and the different phases the plastic goes through before becoming the finished Replas Recycled Plastic products.
Nossal High School is Victoria’s first fully academically selective coeducational Government High School, and one of only four academically selective high schools in the state. Replas is alwasys excited to show students where their recycled plastic can go and what they can do to help!
Replas held an ‘Open Day’ at there showroom in Carrum Downs, where visitors had a tour of Replas products. Along with the process of production and what they can do to better this sustainable future. Peter Patterson, National Business Development Manager, was the tour guide for the day. The visitors also caught up on the latest developments in plastic recycling and saw the use of the current technology to develop a plastic recycling industry in other countries. Replas is hoping to host more Open Days in the future!
A number of years ago, Hutt City Council in Wellington New Zealand, installed Civic seats and Picnic settings alongside the junction of Hutt River and Wellington Harbour. These seats were gifted to the community by Replas NZ (Metal Art Ltd), the Civic Seat with 90×40 profiles and Civic Picnic Seating with 90×40 and 200×40 profiles. These seats and picnic settings are used multiple times a day by business people as lunch stops, cyclists riding along the Great Harbour Way Cycle trail, walkers and runners on the Hutt River Trail, fishermen, and family outings.
Two things make these settings so special, they are made from 100% recycled plastic and they command the best harbour views in Wellington. A sunset over Wellington Harbour does not get much better than this!
The State Member for Cranbourne, Jude Perera, has come to the showroom at Replas in Carrum Downs to catch up on the latest developments in recycled plastic. Jude is a long standing supporter of Replas and all the work we do to better the communities around Australia. Being the State Member for Cranbourne, Jude is very interested in the use of the current technology and the machines we use at Replas to create our products. He is also very interested in developing a plastic recycling industry in other countries. Peter Patterson, Replas’ National Business Development Manager, sat down with Jude to explain all of what Replas is about and what we do.
Replas is excited to have someone like Jude Perera so passionate about recycled plastic, and the very bright future it has here in Australia and hopefully all around the world!
Life is hard for a city tree. Between the pollution, pedestrian and vehicular traffic, vandalism, and much more, street trees need to be cared for and protected in order to survive and thrive. The production team at Replas has designed a new and improved Tree Guard for a Heritage city tree. By using Replas Bollards, the versatile tree guard can be adapted to suit all sizes of trees and amy be fixed either horizontally or vertically.
The panels are also lightweight and available in your choice of black, green, or grey. Replas not only recycles plastic for a Tree Guard, but wants to protect the beauty we are trying to preserve while fighting this ‘War on Waste.’ One of the best things YOU can do to protect these trees, is install a tree guard. The future of recycled plastic and the safety of trees are in the hands of those who want to make a difference!
