Bread tags come in many shapes, sizes and colors. Made of High Impact Polystyrene they have a good recycling value. It takes 200 bread bags full of tags that are packed into 10 black bags or 200 kg of tags to bring in enough money to buy one wheelchair.
Mary Honeybun founded the organization in 2006 in Cape Town and they provide 2 to 3 wheelchairs to adults and children around South Africa every month!! Having a wheelchair gives the recipient independence and mobility and this makes a big difference to their families as well.
Collecting bread tags, even broken ones, makes a difference to our environment too as they are recycled into seedling trays, picture frames, coat hangers and other items.
You too can make a difference to the lives of people who are in need of a wheelchair.
Save your bread tags and get your families and friends to do so too.
Set up a collection point in your office, at your church, school or college.
If you have a collection point, let us know so that we can add it to our site.
