【Green Mid-Autumn】Tips for Waste Reduction
Let's cherish the precious things in our life, both our beloved family and the great environment, in the Mid-Autumn Festival and ever after! Here are some tips for the Festival so that you could waste less with your family and friends in this warm and gathering season.
Donate excess mooncakes
Estimate how many mooncakes you need before placing orders, and ask your friends and family if they have any preferences on flavours to prevent waste. If you have excess mooncakes, you may donate them to charity. Here is the list of mooncake donation programmes.
Recycle mooncake boxes
To recycle clean and recyclable mooncake boxes, you shall separate mooncake boxes and other packaging materials, e.g. plastic holders, based on the materials. Then, deliver them to GREEN@COMMUNITY or organisations carrying out relevant collection programmes.
Avoid buying lanterns of styles easily outdated so that they can be used again next year. Keeping the lanterns for next year can help you reduce waste and save money at the same time.
