In 2015, to reduce the consumption of virgin PET plastic, Watsons Water bottles were transformed into 100% recycled PET. The plan is to expand the programme to include bottle sleeves and caps in future.
To educate the public about how to recycle plastic bottles responsibly, education campaigns were launched in primary schools, secondary schools and universities; a bottle recycling programme was held via Watsons stores in Hong Kong, and we partnered with the World Green Organization to run bottle-recycling events in public housing estates in Hong Kong.
