The construction of STREAT's new venue in Collingwood, Melbourne is well underway. Once in they will be able to support and train 365 young, disadvantaged, people each year – that's three times more than they can now. We are so proud to be one of their key supporters. Read their guest blog below, including a beautiful and inspiring success story from one of their trainees – Jim.
We are constantly looking for improvements – to our product quality, raw materials, processes and service delivery. We are pleased to announce that all our BioCane products just got even better! Better product design. Better manufacturing processes. Better quality sugarcane fibres. Better nesting!
We are inspired by this young eco warrior – Katie from Perth. She recently celebrated her 10th birthday and asked us to supply her with 20 of our 'Save the Cassowary BioCups' for her cassowary-themed birthday party. In lieu of birthday presents she asked for donations for Rainforest Rescue’s Cassowary Conservation Program. The results: 53 rainforest seedlings planted in last month by our very own Director, Richard Fine and his family.
Do you remember the days when mum or the school canteen prepared your lunch and placed it in a brown paper bag? Well, our wonderful partners Christ Mission Possible are bringing it back with their Brown Paper Bag program. BioPak are donating BioCane Takeaway Containers.
We are releasing the next round of eighteen different artists on our BioCup Art Series. Once again we are so impressed by our artists who have been sourced from all around New Zealand and Australia. Read artists statements here.
Village Road Show are committed to reducing the environmental impact of their operations. Their Wet ‘n’ Wild theme park first opened in Queensland in 1984. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sydney followed in 2012. Both are part of the Village Roadshow theme park network, which is visited by millions of people every year.
The emphasis at Wet ‘n’ Wild is on family fun, and that includes the food available at the parks – ice creams, burgers, sandwiches, hot and cold drinks, and various other snack items. There are multiple food outlets, serving a range of hot and cold options, and many are served in products from the BioPak range. The parks use cups and lids for hot and cold beverages, as well as plates and trays.
We have come a long way from our humble beginnings in 2006, where it all started with a dream of developing more sustainable alternatives to plastic packaging. It's been an amazing journey so far and we still have a long way to go on our mission to replace all plastic single-use food service disposables.
