Save Our Santa

Over 30 companies have shown their support on our "Save Our Santa” event last month. Santa and his reindeer are now fully charged and are ready to deliver used clothes donation to different people. Some of the clothes will be sent to a recycling factory to undergo upcycling procedures which new textile can be obtained.  

In addition to donating clothes to reduce waste, Santa would also like to call for public’s adoption to "Goodbye Goodbuy” habit. Say Goodbye to waste and over-consumption; Goodbuy when buying new clothes. Choose clothes that are made from sustainable materials so that they can be worn for a long period.

Winter Clothes Distribution at Shui Pin

Jointly-organised with Samuel Lai, District Council Member of Yuen Long Shui Bin, Winter Clothes Distribution at Shui Pin was successfully held on 29 December. Around 1,000 clothes were distributed to approximately 200 participants. 

Hopefully a big step towards reducing textile waste and reallocating resources to people from different backgrounds can keep everyone warm getting through the winter.

Please stay tuned for more clothes distributing events in the future!

Corporate Member Event “Workshop of Clean Recycling – Used Plastic Bottles”

"Workshop of Clean Recycling – Used Plastic Bottles” was successfully held on 21 Dec. Through attending the clean recycling talk, all participants learned to sort out different types of plastic bottles and had a chance to experience the hardship of appropriate sorting procedure. The activity raised their awareness of the importance of clean recycling.

To increase the quantity of recyclables collected and to reduce the amount of waste disposed, public are advised to rinse the plastic bottles thoroughly before putting into recycling bins. Other types of plastic waste should not be disposed to the 3-colour recycling bins.
