Redundant uniforms and PPE were diverted from landfill for Arc Infrastructure in a rebrand from Brookfield Rail. From this almost 3/4 was gifted to community groups including Migrant Resource Centres and Aboriginal training facilities. Arc staff noted that Loop Upcycling was the most engaging project they had been a part of.
This project received media coverage from print media through to television and radio. Combined with the most liked social media posts for the business, the return on investment was 10 x the cost of the LOOP project.
Date of project: 2018
Quantity upcycled: Estimated 1 tonne.
Products made: 400 custom designed Railway Bears.
