Cooperating with other parties to promote the waste reduction
(1) “RE: MAKE A WISH: The X’mas Baubles Project”
In response to the “RE: MAKE A WISH: The X’mas Baubles Project”, HKFYG collected and donated the plastic bottles from late-October to early-November 2014. The plastic bottles were then upcycled to the X’mas Baubles for charitable purpose and grant seriously ill children's wishes. HKFYG Sustainability Unit and Membership and Volunteer Unit coordinated with our 21 Youth S.P.O.Ts, Jockey Club Sai Kung Outdoor Training Camp (OTC), HKFYG Building to collect the plastic bottles. Our Youth S.P.O.Ts also engaged the youth to participate in plastic recycling to increase their awareness on recycling and handling the waste plastic bottles. HKFYG collected 2714 plastics bottles in the project. The project not only reduce the waste, but also grant seriously ill children's wishes. At the same time, we hope our staff to understand the environmentally-friendly concept “Upcycling” and implement at the work and daily life.
