That's why Go Green Winnetka is partnering with other organizations to collect Bread Tags for Wheelchairs. These tags (bread, bagel, muffin, produce, veggies) are pristine plastic and a valuable raw material and billions are made each year. They can’t be recycled through standard curbside programs because they are too small and too lightweight to sort easily. Most are made from #6 plastic/polystyrene.
Look for Mason Jars in D36 schools—and start saving those Bread Tags!
260,000 bread tags = 200 lbs of plastic = one basic wheelchair
