10 Tonne Challenge
拾樽背後 • 關懷扶貧
V Cycle is a social enterprise that is committed to attaining an effective circular economy that will benefit Hong Kong socially and environmentally. We are organising this activity in the hope of collecting over 10 tonnes of PET (polyethene terephthalate) plastic bottles, which are categorised as type 1 plastics and usually take the form of beverage bottles.
We aim to recycle the collected bottles and remake them into creative, multi-purpose tote bags. Part of the recycling process will involve waste pickers, enabling them to earn extra income, while the sewing and stitching process will create job opportunities for rehabilitation participants. Proceeds from the sales of the bags will be used towards improving the lives of waste pickers.
The Ten Tonne Challenge will include environmental education and visits to assist waste pickers. Our aim is to promote ecological conservation and help some of Hong Kong’s least fortunate citizens.
to create a cleaner, more beautiful Hong Kong for us and our future generation to live in and love.
