HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 12 October 2021 - Mead
Johnson Nutrition Hong Kong ("Mead Johnson") partners with 24-hour online shopping
mall, HKTVmall under Hong Kong Technology Venture Company Limited ("HKTVmall") and
the World Green Organisation ("WGO") again to
launch the largest-scale "We CAN Protect the Future" Formula Cans Recycling Program
in Hong Kong. Following the success of its pilot program launched earlier this
year at the 6 collection points at HKTVmall O2O shops, Mead Johnson has
upgraded and extended the program coverage to 35 collection points across Hong
Kong, and team up with parents to build a cleaner and more sustainable world
for our future generations, nurturing their best start in life.
From now until 24
December 2021, citizens can return cleaned formula cans from all brands to any
of the 35 designated HKTVmall O2O shops across Hong Kong and redeem an
e-voucher (HKTVmall HK$400 Mead Johnson selected products or HK$50 Dettol
selected products) for each successful return. 
All collected formula cans will be processed at a local recycling plant and
turned into recyclable molten metal. The entire recycling process is supervised
by the WGO to ensure all recycled cans will be transformed appropriately into recycled
material to reduce environmental burden and promote green economy in Hong Kong.
To encourage active
participation in the program and further enhance environmental awareness of the
public, Mead Johnson and the WGO will also organise parent-child formula cans
upcycling workshops at different shopping malls from October to December 2021.
The workshops will bring children their first environmental protection
experience. The workshops expect to cover approximately 300 participants.
Further details will be announced.
The pilot program
launched by Mead Johnson at the beginning of 2021 received overwhelming
responses from the public and was successful in promoting the importance of cans
recycling among over 50,000 parents. More than 1,500 formula cans were
collected and recycled within a short period of time through 6 HKTVmall O2O shops.
"Mead Johnson has been
working side by side with parents to safeguard our environment and address
social issues in the city for many years, guided by its mission to nourish the
best start in life for our next generation," said Mr. Pankaj Agarwal, General
Manager, Hong Kong, Taiwan & Cross-Border of Mead Johnson Nutrition (Hong
Kong) Limited. "Our pilot program achieved great success by establishing a
convenient and reliable one-stop recycling channel for consumers. Through our
partnership with HKTVmall and the WGO, we endeavour to optimise parents'
recycling experience by enhancing the program's accessibility through extended
HKTVmall O2O network, encouraging parents to recycle and help build a
sustainable future together."
Ms. Jelly Zhou, Chief
Executive Officer (Hong Kong) at Hong Kong Technology Venture Company Limited, added,
"HKTVmall has been a strong advocate for sustainable shopping. We are pleased
to team up with Mead Johnson and the WGO again to launch this meaningful
recycling scheme. Through the addition of O2O shops as collection points, we encourage
the public to integrate waste reduction and recycling into daily life and
enhance their environmental awareness. We will continue to fulfill our social
responsibility through corporate partnerships to bring positive impacts on our
community." HKTVmall encourages citizens' participation in the recycling
program by offering 35 collection points across Hong Kong under its O2O
Dr. William Yu, Founder

is pioneering in formula cans recycling by promoting collaboration between
retailer and green group and expanding its recycling network. This program is one
of the role models for sustainability development in Hong Kong." The WGO acts
