We Have Recycled the Equivalent of 500 Million Plastic Straws
At the beginning of 2019, our Co-Directors, Tom and Johnny came up with a unique solution to help tackle the issue of plastic waste littering the globe.
Now, over four years later, our Recycle Bound solution has recycled the equivalent of over 500 million plastic straws and we are so incredibly proud of this huge milestone!
Growing up in Cornwall, Tom and Johnny saw first-hand the devastating effect plastic waste has on our coastline and they grew increasingly concerned about the effect this was having on our planet.
Recycle Bound has been recognised by multiple awards including ‘Product of the Year’ at the Cornwall Business Awards and runner up for ‘Recycled Product of the Year’ in the National Recycling Awards.
Tom Stringer comments: “We launched Recycle Bound in 2019 and now, four years later, we have recycled the equivalent of 500 million plastic straws which is incredible. It is so exciting and rewarding to see so many of our customers, both domestic and commercial, opting for Recycle Bound.”
Johnny Pearce added: “Hitting 500 million plastic straws after four years is a huge milestone and one that we are incredibly proud of. We won’t be stopping here as the number of plastic straws that are recycled in our Recycle Bound installations increases every day. Thank you to everyone who has opted for Recycle Bound. Here’s to the next 500 million.”
We love seeing all of the amazing transformations created across the UK using Recycle Bound, we are so happy that so many people opt for the sustainable option and cannot wait to keep installing this disruptive product.
