Bread Tags for Wheelchairs
You are never too young to lead… as proven by Jake, one of the ‘Junior Young Leaders’ at Port Noarlunga Primary School in South Australia.
Jake introduced the “Bread Tags for Wheelchairs” idea to the Junior Young Leaders group and everyone thought this was a great idea. Jake and his peers are now writing to local businesses to spread the word about this initiative, collecting as many bread tags as possible.
“If you have bread tags at home, please don’t just throw them in the bin. Donate them to us!” said the school. These are given to the organisation ‘Bread Tags for Wheelchairs’ who collect about 500kg of the hard plastic bread tags every month. This plastic has a high recycling value and the organisation is able to receive a payment for it. Each month this traslates to providing 2-3 wheelchairs to people who need them most.
“We are so proud of Jake’s determination to make a difference not only to people in need but also to our planet” said the school.
