Accumulated Recycled Snack Bag
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Hong Kong and the subsequent risk on public health, the "Snack Bag Recycling Campaign" will be suspended until further notice.
Snack bags are mostly made by further processing aluminium foil and/ or plastic. Because of the nature of composite materials, they are not recyclable for now. Some snack bags are with pure plastic. However, its colorful printing lowers its recycling value. This kind is filtered out by some recyclers. These packing bags are waterproof with attractive printing. However, their life always ends at the landfill after we have finished enjoying its wonderful yet evil snack.
From now on, when you have finished your snack, just clean and send us the bags. This will give them a second life. We have discovered its potential of being upcycled to various daily household goods. Let's eat more, waste less!
