WE DID IT!

We have just received the photo of our 7th wheelchair recipient!
Steven is a stroke victim living in Philippi in the Western Cape, South Africa. His wheelchair was organised through the the Philippi Economic Development Initiative, who promote economic and social renewal in the area. His wheelchair was funded by recycling bread tags from around Australia thanks to our partnership with Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs.

*Keep collecting  your bread tags as we aim to purchase our 7th wheelchair for disabled  adults and children in need in South Africa!

To help reduce waste and be environmentally friendly bring your bread tags along in paper bags, cardboard boxes or other materials that can be recycled to the station or the various locations listed below.    __________________________________________________________________

“Play TAG -with The Roadies”  

  • Don’t throw away your old bread bag tags!
    Give them to The Roadies and we will recycle them and help others in need!
  • Bring your bread tags along to The Roadies each Monday or drop them off to a collection point and we will recycle them. Thanks to a generous recycler in Robe- Transmutation– our bread tags are now recycled into products such as floor tiles, bowls and door knobs.
  • We receive cash for our bread tags and the proceeds are sent to
    Bread tags for Wheelchairs in South Africa.  A group who help disabled adults and children obtain much needed wheelchairs. 
  • We are also partnering with Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs! Together our aim is to create more collection points all over Australia!  To host or find out about other collection points contact aussiebreadtags@gmail.com. Find them on facebook!
