Tuffy is the first organisation in SA to be accredited for having fully recycled content in our refuse bags. Made from 100% recycled material with a minimum 75% level of post-consumer waste, we’re effectively turning trash into trash bags. Sure, it would be easier for us to use virgin plastic, but by doing it our way, we’re reducing our carbon footprint by 40% and recycling 600 tons of plastic per month – not too shabby, we think.
Tuffy is not only taking the heavy load off our landfills, but also creating much-needed jobs in the process. Every day, South Africans are hard at work to manage the complex industrial process needed to create our bags. So, next time you pick up a Tuffy, give yourself a pat on the back.
