With Chinese New Year preparations in full swing, local electricity retailer Geneco has partnered with several retailers and a mall to support the recycling of red packets.
With this initiative carrying on for its third consecutive year, Geneco hopes Singaporeans will be encouraged to “make a change for a more sustainable future”.
In 2021 and 2022, over 410kg and 1,040kg of used and excess red packets were recycled respectively.
This year, the participating retailers include CRU, IUIGA, REFASH, Tay Paper Recycling and OTO, a health and beauty retailer in Singapore, which is a new partner in this year's initiative.
From now to Mar. 31, Geneco-branded recycling bins will be placed across 30 retail and office locations islandwide to encourage Singaporeans to recycle their used red packets.
Aside from the retail outlets mentioned above, the bins can also be found at Wisma Atria's Concierge Level 1 and Office Tower Lobby, as well as Geneco's Alexandra Office.
The full list of locations can be found here.
