In New Zealand, printing equipment supplier company Ricoh uses Replas products to demonstrate the benefits of ‘closing the recycling loop’. So when Ricoh South ran a recycling-themed competition for primary school students, the prize they put up was a Beachcomber seat plus $1000 worth of trees for the winning school.

The competition winner was Abby, who then had the happy task of creating a suitable design for the recycled plastic seat.  Abby chose a dolphin design, and now her seat sits prominently in the grounds of Hedgehope School, just out of Invercargill.

Congratulations Abby, Ricoh and all concerned, for your contribution to environmental care.
