The Hon Dr Steven Miles MP, Minister for the Environment and Heritage Protection and Minister for National Parks and the Great Barrier Reef, visited Milton State School in Brisbane, Qld to unwrap a very special seat.

The students have embraced the REDcycle program which allows consumers to recycle flexible plastic packaging through supermarkets. The seat which was donated to the school to celebrate their commitment to recycling is made from the equivalent of 9000 plastic bags.

Since the program began, Coles and REDcycle have diverted more than 100 million pieces of flexible plastic from landfill across Australia which had been recycled by Replas.
