Circular Economy Collaborations

V Cycle is putting PET recycling bins and reverse vending machines all around HK, here people can give their used plastic bottles to be recycled into reusable goods.  We specifically collaborate with local and global brands to upcycle waste and reduce the need for virgin materials; these brands use their existing platforms to raise awareness and support.

While we don’t see recycling as a long-term solution, it is a way to reuse plastic that has already been made, and to reduce the demand for new plastic to be produced.

Creating Jobs for the Disadvantaged

Once the PET bottles have been collected, they will be recycled into reusable bags, hats, umbrellas, fabrics and yarn. These sustainable products can be purchased online or custom made for corporate gifts. We specifically collaborate with local and global brands to upcycle waste and reduce the need for virgin materials; these brands use their existing platforms to raise awareness and support. Every piece will be created by the needy or those with special needs, providing them with an opportunity in the workforce and a chance to learn new skills.

 

Between our roadshows, seminars, beach cleanups, recycling drives and talks we will first educate the public on the harmful nature of plastic and build respect for Hong Kong’s environment. What we hope follows is a shift in behaviours, we believe once you grasp the magnitude of the problem, you become part of the solution. Small choices made day to day can make the difference, like opting for alternative materials or carrying a refillable water bottle.
