Coles have had an overwhelming response to the recent recycling drive. More than 37 000 bags were collected nationwide —this equates to approximately 7800 cubic metres of plastic saved from landfill. The collected plastic was recycled and made into seats by Replas.

Coles will shortly be distributing the recycled-plastic seats, to schools around Australia. Visit our website www.replas.com.au to view a list of the winners.

Due to the success of the program, Coles will launch its second reusable-bag drive in September.
