Sunsuper helps Greenbatch do good with $40,000 in grants
Published on 02 April 2019
Greenbatch Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that has built Western Australia’s first plastic bottle reprocessing plant.
Through Sunsuper’s Dreams for a Better World 2018 program, Greenbatch won $40,000 in grants towards their dream to educate all Australians about where plastic waste really goes and to curb the massive impact plastic bottles have on our environment.
Greenbatch will purchase 400 collection bins and deliver the bins to schools on the Western Australian coast to get more than 400,000 students into recycling.
The bottles collected by the schools and wider community will be sent back to the new plastic reprocessing plant and turned into 3D printer filament, which is then used by schools and local businesses.
