Australian Catalogue : TUPP_SS10_Catalogue
In July 2002, Sally decided to join Tupperware – a decision she has never regretted. Although she had been approached at two previous Tupperware parties to become a demonstrator, it wasn’t until Sally Leydon had to put her four-month-old daughter Ella into fulltime day care that she considered a career change. Working long hours as a state sales-store manager and a state training manager, it broke Sally’s heart to leave her baby in crèche five days a week. ‘I wanted to look at other options,’ Sally recalls, ‘so I could work around my baby.’ After resigning from her job, Sally took her daughter out of fulltime day care, putting her there a couple of days a week while she concentrated on building her Tupperware business. Sally loves the diversity Tupperware has to offer. Aside from being a business owner, introducing people to Tupperware and watching them grow from shy and retiring to brimming with confidence. ‘Seeing people developing their confidence to a point where they can run their own Tupperware business – that’s my joy!’ Another highlight for Sally is the incredible Tupperware incentives – anything from electrical goods, to overseas trips. One memorable trip brought together a group, who not only shared a passion for Tupperware but also shopping. ‘I achieved an incentive trip to Hawaii. We went shopping in the Ala Moana centre and we shopped until we dropped. We literally had bags tied to the side of the trolley it was so full,’ laughs Sally. Sally also had the pleasure of achieving another incentive trip in 2008 – to Hong Kong – and the best part was taking her husband, Chris. The trip also happened to coincide with the couple’s 10th wedding anniversary. ‘Chris travels the world a lot and he said himself, he was totally blown away by what Tupperware offers and how well they look after us,’ says Sally. ‘Five star all the way!’ Most importantly, Tupperware has afforded Sally and Chris the financial security to provide their children Ella (9), D’Arcy (5) and Caleb (3) with a great way of life. ‘We’ve been to Disneyland twice,’ says Sally. ‘We try to go once every three years and that’s purely with the money I earn from selling Tupperware!’ So what’s the best part of being with Tupperware? Sally says it allows her to be a great mum and it gives her freedom. ‘I started Tupperware so that Ella didn’t have to go to day care five days a week and I didn’t have to work 70 hours a week running someone else’s business,’ Sally says. ‘That was eight years ago and since then I have had two more beautiful children. I love being around to have so much time at home with the kids. But I also love to be able to get out and do Tupperware - it gives me a really good work/life balance. And it’s great for kids.’ 57 1.

Standards Australia Limited, 2009 Making a difference... .. . at Tupperware our policies and practices support our commitment to social investment, environmental responsibility, quality innovation, and the education and empowerment of women. For Tupperware, environmental sustainability is about creating positive social change to create a future for our children. We do this through our famous Lifetime Guarantee; our recycling policies; and our association with Do Something and the Food Wise campaign. You can be confident when purchasing Tupperware products that you are helping the environment. By storing, freezing, reheating and serving food in Tupperware you can help reduce the impact that food waste, plastic wrap, throw-away containers and disposable packaging has on the environment. A recent study indicated that: We throw out three million tonnes of food every year. That’s $5.2 billion worth of food. What’s more, when food waste rots in landfill it produces methane, a greenhouse gas that is 23 times more potent than the CO2 pouring out of your car’s exhaust . 1 85% of disposable packaging, plastic bottles, throw-away containers and various other consumer goods end up in landfill. Other non-recyclable products end up in waterways or litter . 2 Tupperware products are designed to last a lifetime. However, those products that end up damaged or are unwanted can be returned to us. When they are returned they are ground up and recycled into plant pots, low grade pipes, builder’s film and garbage bags. When you purchase and use Tupperware you’ll be helping care for the environment, creating a sustainable future for our children.

Tupperware Australia is proud to support this organisation as a platinum sponsor. The ultimate goal of the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NCBF) is to raise enough money to fund a cure for breast cancer. As Australia’s leading national not-for-profit organisation established to fund all forms of research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer, the NBCF has a responsibility to ensure that the funds raised are used in the best possible way towards making this goal a reality. The NBCF is unique in its research funding as it is the only community organisation that awards funds specifically for research across the continuum of breast cancer - from genetics to treatment, to support and palliative care. Funds raised are directed to the best research in Australia - neither limited by state boundaries nor institutional policies. The NBCF has no vested interest other than ensuring progression in knowledge about breast cancer. The NBCF recently achieved a new milestone having funded $55 million across 230 research programs since 1994. If you would like to find out more about the National Breast Cancer Foundation or would like to make a donation please visit www.nbcf.org.au Fundraising $2.00 from the sale of the Weekender (page 54) and 90 cents from the sale of each Tupperware Enviro Bag (page 15) is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
