The Envirowoolly® story...
The “Envirowoolly” is a range of Australian animals. The Envirowoollys are all made from knitted woollen offcuts, with their filling made from Tastex's own recycled waste wool product - making them both sustainable and environmentally friendly.
The Envirowoollys have been a great hit with Tastex Supported Employees as they enjoy making these cute little fellows! They also provide an ideal training opportunity for practicing sewing skills and improving hand, eye co-ordination techniques.
These innovative toys are not only fun to make, they are providing Tastex with both ongoing training opportunities for Supported Employees and a welcome additional income stream.
