48. Over 16,500 trees planted by Able Plastics through Greenfleet

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

 Able Plastics offsets its CO2 emissions mainly through tree planting. 


Over the years we have worked with a number of offset organisations, including Greenfleet.


Our lifetime total for offsets with Greenfleet is 4,487.4 tonnes which in real terms has been achieved by the planting of 16,745 trees.


These trees improve water quality, reduce erosion, provide wildlife  habitat and offset CO2.

45. Seats from recycled plastic donated to Western Hospital

Monday, March 26, 2012

As part of an initiative that  Western Health have been implementing for recycling plastic waste from theatre, Able Plastics have funded three outdoor seats.

The seats are made from reclaimed plastic and include plaques, each with its own message. The seats will be installed in the garden areas of the Western Hospital.

Able Plastics worked together with the Red Group, who facilitate the pickup of the recyclable waste and who, in delivering the finished seats, are helping us to close the lifecycle loop for some of our products.
