Recycled Mats joined our Starwin Collective back in July 2013. We caught up with JJ, based in Tweed Heads South, NSW, to learn more about their story for creating change.
How would you describe ways that you give back / pay it forward in our community?
We are always making donations to community groups, in fact the past 2 years we estimate we have donated over $40,000 of resources to various groups.
What is your one-of-a-kindness story?
We delight in the knowledge that so many celebrate culture across Australia while using practical and repurposed materials that may otherwise end up in landfill. It's a fabulous way to educate on both a cultural and sustainable level.
Can you share with us a story of how you care for country?
Since 2009 we estimate we have recycled over 215,000 kg of material from landfill and this year (2020) we have decided to pledge at least 1,000 native trees to be planted across Australia as a part of our commitment to community and country.
