Sustainability is important to us. Cripps is a proud Tasmanian company and we will continually strive to implement innovative and creative solutions that allow us to become a more sustainable business.
Below you can read more on our recent partnership with REDcycle and the implementation of recycled cardboard bread clips.
Our Company Values
FULL OF FRESH IDEAS
In December 2020 Cripps made the switch to recycled paper bread tags. Cripps bakes over 12 million loaves of bread per year & this change removes from landfill approx.13.23 m3 of plastic waste per year.
If all these plastic tags were placed end to end, they would cover 266 km which is the distance between Hobart and Sheffield. If they were stacked on top of each other they would stretch 13.7km high which is taller than Mount Everest.
Whilst the majority of plastic bread tags end up in landfill, some end up in coastal areas and river systems and can be lethal to birds and marine life. We are sure that Tasmanians will embrace this positive change.
DISPOSING OF PLASTIC PROPERLY
OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH REDcycle
Cripps are thrilled to be a REDcycle partner. REDcycle are a Melbourne based company who turn soft plastics into products such as benches, play equipment and over 200 other products.
In 2020 alone, REDcycle recovered, recycled and diverted 1 billion pieces of plastic from landfill. That's equivalent to 1080 elephants!
You can be involved by dropping off your bread bags to a Coles or Woolworths drop off point/ REDcycle bin. Please note that drop off bins can vary in appearance from store to store, the image provided is an example only. We are currently in the process of phasing in the REDcycle logo onto our packaging.VISIT REDcycle to LEARN MORE
