Recyclable tags: the best thing since sliced bread

Australian bread manufacturer Tip Top has announced it will roll out its 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard bread tags into stores across New South Wales and Victoria this month.

Launched in South Australia in November 2020, the company estimates the initiative will remove 400 million pieces of single-use plastic every year as they roll out across Australia and New Zealand.

“We’re doing it because it’s simply the right thing to do,” said Graeme Cutler, Director of Sales and CSR Lead at Tip Top ANZ. “We want to be proactive, rather than wait for our customers to ask us to address our waste. And, when it comes to working together as a nation to eliminate single-use plastics, we want to be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.

“Developed after rigorous testing and learning, the sustainable bag tags promise no compromise on freshness and taste,” Cutler said.

The bread tags can be recycled in kerbside bins or tucked inside other paper or cardboard products for the best chance of being upcycled into a new product.

The transition to recyclable bread tags is part of the company’s vision to ensure all its packaging will be 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.
