Investing in sustainability education
Pioneering the plastic revolution
The RPR will re-invest any proceeds from the cost of the mark into education programmes around sustainability.
With the help of Timothy the Turtle, we want to raise awareness of the plastic problem. Inspiring the younger generation to make change happen through positive life choices, all proceeds of the RPR will be invested into education around sustainability at schools and universities.
