Rig Recycle Bins
On the weekend Tangaroa Blue showcased their new ‘Rig Recycle’ bins made by Megara at the Ultimate Fishing Expo at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Tangaroa Blue Foundation & Rig Recycle Program
Tangaroa Blue Foundation is an Australia-wide not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the removal and prevention of marine debris: one of the major environmental issues worldwide.
Under their Rig Recycle program, Tangaroa Blue are rolling out 60 recycling bins at fishing clubs and retail outlets. Items that can be deposited in the bins include tackle, lines, hooks, lures and sinkers that are broken or not wanted. Items in good condition will be repaired and donated to charities, while the rest will be recycled and used to create new fishing equipment.
The Rig Recycle bins were designed and made on-site by Megara using the PROMEG® Ecorange®.
Visit Tangaroa Blue to express interest in hosting a Rig Recycle bin at your local fishing club, organisation, or retailer.
