Barbara Matthews of Recycled Recreation:

Plastics Revolution with Tammy Ven Dange

17-03-2020 • 50 mins

In this episode of Plastics Revolution, host Tammy Ven Dange chats with Barbara Matthews of Recycled Recreation based in Hobart, Tasmania and their newest store in Canberra, Australia.  Barbara and her husband, Rex owned an indoor climbing business when they recognised a need to help parents rehome their children’s climbing shoes as they grew out of them.

Today, they have two retail shops that buy and sell outdoor clothing and gear. And from that, they’ve increased the useful life of these products - creating value for manufacturers, retailers, the customers and ultimately the environment.

We hope you enjoy this episode of Plastics Revolution with Barbara Matthews of Recycled Recreation.
