Australia Post is transitioning over 200 of its plastic satchels to contain recycled plastic as the organization delivers on the pledge it made at the National Plastics Summit in March last year.
- By moving to recycled plastics now Australia Post is fulfilling the third 2025 National Packaging Target 4 years early.
- The new satchels are part of Australia Post’s commitment to make packaging from recycled plastic, which includes sustainable principles in design and production.
- An independent Life Cycle Assessment showed satchels made with recycled plastic content are the better option for the environment.
- Also, earlier this year, Australia Post piloted a soft plastic recycling program in partnership with REDcycle in 12 Post Offices and is working with Licensed Post Offices to extend access to this service.
Australia Post Quote
“Every year our customers use and post millions of Australia Post and StarTrack branded satchels, so transitioning these to contain recycled plastic makes it easier for our customers and business to lessen their impact on the environment.”
“Not only does using recycled plastic increase the use of recycled materials and give used plastic another life, research shows it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, non-renewable resource use and water consumption as well.”Susan Mizrahi, Australia Post Chief Sustainability Officer
