Dedicated to a sustainable future

A fresh approach to sustainability

At Kwik Lok, we recognize that as a plastics company with a global footprint, we have both a responsibility to minimize our impact and an opportunity to drive meaningful change.

Our new Fresh Start initiative is our promise to continually improve, innovate and support our community. At the core of our Fresh Start initiative, we have instituted a sustainability planning, governance and reporting system to hold ourselves accountable. This system is rooted in the following four key strategies.

We’ve partnered with TerraCycle

Kwik Lok Australia and TerraCycle are partnering in a pilot program to create a free recycling program for our bag closures! Every closure collected is a closure saved from landfill, to be recycled and given a second life in a new and useful product.

Participating in your home, office, school or organization is completely free and very easy:

Collect your closures

We recommend collecting your waste in any cardboard box you already have or can obtain. The larger the box the more you collect, the more efficient the program!

Ship to TerraCycle

TerraCycle will send you a free shipping label. Once collected, the bread bag closures are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.

Small closures, big impact

As a thank you for your commitment to recycling, for each kilogram of bag closures that you send to TerraCycle through this program, $1 will be donated to Keep Australia Beautiful.
