how much soft plastic has RED Group collected?

  • RED Group has collected enough pieces of soft post-consumer packaging to circle Australia two and a half times*.
  • That's over 263 million pieces of plastic that'll never end up in¬†landfill, on our beaches or in our waterways.
  • With a total weight of over 1054 tonnes, that's equivalent to 264 elephants (weighing 4 tonnes each).

*(Assuming an average size of 25cm per item, we've collected approximately 66 million metres of plastic packaging laid end to end. The coastline of Australia is 25,760,000 metres.)
