Recycling for a cause.
To pursue the vision of cultivating an upcycling culture in Hong Kong, HAECO Hong Kong and Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) joined hands and co-organised a programme to upcycle our work uniforms. A design competition kicked off the programme, where participants from schools and public, transformed dismissed HAECO uniforms into travelling accessories produced by members of sheltered workshops and women from grassroots families. A charity sale will be hosted to present and sell these upcycled products, and the proceeds will go to a non-profit organisation supporting environmentally-related initiatives. It was a heartfelt moment to witness how we have saved around 3,000 uniforms from disposal to landfill, but most importantly how we have reached out to the less privileged community providing support and opportunities.
