Take a step to reducing your carbon footprint
Each year, Australia produces more than 53.7 million tonnes of rubbish of which 22 million tonnes reach landfills. We produce about 2.1kg of waste every day, which is the second highest in the world.
The PVC Recycle program is an initiative of the Bata Shoe Company of Australia to help reduce worn PVC gumboots being disposed of into landfill. Bata’s aim is to re-process this waste into the raw materials to create brand new Bata PVC gumboots and help save the planet. Our main objective is to have zero used/worn PVC gumboots being disposed into landfill and to help our customers responsibly dispose of their used boots. We are working to setup easy to use recycle disposal bins nation wide in collaboration with our current distributors.
