Each year, Australia produces more than 53.7 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. So thanks to our consumerist habits we are generating more waste than we can get rid of in an environmentally correct way.
That is why Bata Australia has made a conscience effort to reduce waste generation through recycling and reusing PVC content in our gumboot production process. So by using recycled content not only do we reduce the amount of waste reaching landfill but we are also helping to reduce our carbon footprint as well.
Also to encourage more recycling we have set up a PVC recycling program which makes it easier for our consumers to dispose of there used gumboots correctly for reuse.
So if you would like to help us work towards creating a much more sustainble future by recycling your old used PVC gumboots.
