Win for wool saving world

GOODBYE polystyrene, Silverwater’s Planet Protector Packaging is in the race to become the market leader in sustainable thermal packaging that doesn’t harm the planet.

The company has now been named the inaugural winner of the NSW Circular Transition Award in the NSW Sustainability Awards presented by Banksia Foundation.
Manufacturing their new resource Woolpack from waste wool that is unsuitable for the textile industry, this amazing team of environmental warriors are constantly on the lookout for new avenues to distribute their recycled goods and they have not allowed even a global pandemic to slow or stop their recycling efforts.
The whole Planet Protector Packaging Team, lead by Joanne Howarth – Australia’s First Cartier Womens Initiative Laureate in Oceania – are delighted to have won the prestigious award.
“This tops off an amazing month for our business, with Planet Protector Packaging receiving a $4.8m Federal Government Modernising Manufacturing grant to establish a $9,663,871 manufacturing facility in regional NSW and also winning three awards in the World Packaging Organisation’s Worldstar Awards,” Ms Howarth said.
“The Banksia Foundation award validates our team’s tremendous efforts to build sustainable thermally stable woolpack packaging solutions and creating Australian sovereign capacity to create wool and other circular economy based textile solutions.”
