Finished your Botanic Pretti5 Product? Check out our complete HK Recycling Guide

Happy World Environment day! 

Happy World Environment day We hope you’ve been eating green, sharing transport, minimising waste, and taking that extra step to be sustainable all year round, but especially today. At Botanic Pretti5, our product is vegan and cruelty-free and we’ve designed our packaging to be 100% recyclable, but we still recognise that we are contributing to the massive 120 billion units of packaging that the beauty industry as a whole produces each year. This World Environment Day we want to highlight the fact that only 9% of produced plastic waste is recycled and the rest is incinerated or disposed of as waste. In light of this, our Botanic Pretti5 gift to you is a short and easy guide on how to recycle each of our finished products at Hong Kong’s snazzy new GREEN @ COMMNUNITY recycling centres!

Scattered along all 18 districts, GREEN @ COMMNUNITY is Hong Kong’s new exciting network of mom n pop like like recycling stations, stores, and spots. Unlike the everyday recycling bins you find on the street, these areas are facilitated and specialised to make recycling easier and even more accessible. Find your closest station, store, or spot, and upon recycling your finished Botanic Pretti5 products, you’ll be given a GREEN$ (Greeny Coins) smart card where you can collect points used for gift redemption!
