HALS produces over 1.5 million bagged products per year which equates to significant quantities of soft plastics that currently cannot be recycled or reprocessed within the state. This means the bags will ultimately end up in landfill. HALS has strong environmental values as we demonstrate with our relationships with seaweed and kelp product manufacturers to take waste that would otherwise be in landfill to use in our composting processes. HALS also makes a range of organic products to reduce the amount of chemical fertilisers in the environment. HALS is dedicated to reducing waste and improving recycling in Tasmania.
HALS uses 60% recycled plastic packaging on as many of our bagged products as we are able to. We hope to increase the recycled plastic content percentage moving forward as our suppliers continue to innovate.
