We are delighted to announce that Recycle Bound is now officially an award-winning product. On Thursday 27 June, we celebrated a night of success after being awarded with Product of the Year at the Cornwall Business Awards and also being announced as the runner up in the National Recycling Awards – both for our innovative, world-first product Recycle Bound.
The night was a busy one for team Oltco with Co-Directors Tom and Johnny attending the National Recycling Awards in London whilst Oltco team members, Corinna and Diane collected the Cornwall Business Award in our home county.
Recycle Bound is the world’s first recycled driveway solution to help combat the global issue of plastic waste. Made from waste plastic (straws, plastic drink bottles and plastic food packaging) from a plastic recycling point, each square metre of Recycle Bound consists of the equivalent of 3,000 plastic straws. Therefore if Recycle Bound was laid on a standard 50 square metre drive, the equivalent of 150,000 plastic straws would be recycled in the process. You can find out more about Recycle Bound here.
Since launching Recycle Bound at the beginning of this year, we have already recycled the equivalent of 14,640,000 straws – something that we are extremely proud of. After 24 months of intensive development before launching Recycle Bound, we are honoured to have had our innovative product and our commitment to caring for the world around us recognised on both a local and national scale at these awards.
