UpShop Recycled Bag Instagram Giveaway

Win a Metro Tunnel prize!

The Metro Tunnel Creative Program is working with UpShop Industries in Brunswick to make sure its project banners on the construction sites don’t go to waste. We are giving you the chance to win a locally designed and fabricated Metro Tunnel recycled bag!

UpShop Industries repurposes materials and objects to extend their life span. They connect creatives, upcyclers and manufacturers to reduce waste and its impact on the environment.

So far, in producing the bags from Metro Tunnel banners, we have redirected over 225 square metres of vinyl away from landfill. Of the 150kg of vinyl consumed to date, we reduced the waste down to 10% so that around 90% (or approximately 135kg's) live on as new products – such as these great bags!

The bags have a flat bottom and are sizeable enough to carry a hard hat and a pair of steel capped boots or a beach towel and a picnic!  Over the next couple of years we will be offering these bags up through online competitions or at our events. Certain businesses around the Metro Tunnel site will also have bags for sale – we will let you know where and when!

Here's how to win:
1. Follow @metrotunnelvic on Instagram
2. Like the post
3. Tag a friend in the comments

That's it! We will be randomly selecting 5 winners on Monday December 14, 2020. The winners will be announced via our Instagram stories. GOOD LUCK!
