Your Pets Can Help with Recycling Too!

Credit: Ecozine

As a devoted pet parent I’m all for sustainability education for my fur kids. No, I’m joking. I reckon my babies are doing pretty well already: they leave no food waste behind, and clean the bowl with non-chemical ‘agent’, like they do with their bodies. I can’t complain. The only thing they can’t do is to take the packaging of their food to the recycling bins.

Now, I normally take the cans to the recycling bins but if you’d like to make this act more meaningful, BeWell, a charity project is planning to give new life to used pet food cans by making them containers for the bead wax refills they provide with every BeCandle Beads purchase. Anyone that donates used pet food cans will be entitled to a complimentary refill of BeCandle Beads in a glass bottle that is recycled by Green Glass Green, and a free pilates class with BeWell project leader Elisa Fu. If you wish to give more, BeCandle is offering a special pack (HKD180) of BeCandle Beads that includes a recycled glass bottle, a sachet of wicks, and a recycled pet food can filled with wax sand made of natural palm wax – know that 100% of the profits from the special pack will be donated to the SPCA.

You’ll find the pet can collection station at BeCandle’s GLUE Associates (S402, PMQ, 35 Aberdeen Street, Central), and the special pack can be bought online here. There will be a launch party for this project at 6pm on Saturday, 13 June, at Panevino, so bring your pets!
