Switch Your Sitch

Bec Healy: The Switch from Plastics

Today I am excited to Switch The Sitch with Bec Healy, founder of Boxhead plastics. Boxhead Plastic’s primary ecological objective is landfill diversion with a focus on bulk waste items: in particular, polypropylene car bumper bars

Bec and I discuss the transition from being “securely” employed in Government Administration for 16 years to enrolling in a TAFE Course in Polymer technology that would ultimately change the course of career and life.

In the midst of launching her first business, winning Student of the year in innovative manufacturing,  Bec added a new addition to her family to give time management a real nudge.

Bec being a  passionate environmentalist, has pioneered an innovative process that repurposes this bulk plastic waste item and remanufactures it into clever, useful, and relevant products.

Earlier this year, Bec and her team launched Naiteev. The Naiteev Golf Tee is nothing short of revolutionary, made from Recycled Plastic Car Bumper Bars and Waste Plastic sourced form the Sydney basin made here in Sydney.

This is definitely a podcast you want to tune in to should you be thinking about launching or growing a product with sustainability and environmental protection as its core value.
