A huge thank you to everyone who supported our Pizza for Plastic initiative for World Environment Day this afternoon.
Collected 1, 736(!) plastic bottles to recycle into clothing, carpets and sleeping bags
Served up 144 pizzas to support World Environment Day
Reached over 24,000 (approx.) people in our local area with news of World Environment Day
This is probably the least enticing image you’ll see on our website by a country mile. But it’s an important one. We’re emptying these bags out to be recycled with our waste recycle partner over the next couple of days.
While we're pleased to have encouraged so many people to consider their recycling habits and their personal plastic consumption this is a staggering amount of plastic for just a few hours of collection.
We hope this will bring attention to just how much plastic consumption our society is creating demand for - and encourage our local community to think more carefully about the products the buy and where they shop.
What we know is pizza - we’re not environmental experts - but today has highlighted the frightening volume of plastic consumption there is in our community. We hope our customers and community will rethink plastic waste and see today as an inspiring way to rethink the impact they make on the environment on a daily basis, not just for one day.
Thank you to everyone who support the initiative today, keep your eyes on our Facebook and Instagram for our next campaign.
