Canon x McDull Inter-school Ink Cartridge Recycling Competition

Environmental protection and waste reduction are crucial to the success of sustainability, as an environmentally conscious organization, Canon Hongkong Company Limited (Canon HK) envisions a green and sustainable future, advocating a greener way to operate business. Since 2009, Canon HK has launched “Ink Cartridge Recycling Program” and invited the famous cartoon character “McDull” as the program’s ambassador. Currently Canon HK has placed over 290 recycling boxes for collecting empty ink cartridges.
Canon believes the young generation definitively plays an important role towards sustainable development. In 2011, Canon HK has extended the Ink Cartridge Recycling Program to education sector and organized “Canon x McDull Inter-school Ink Cartridge Recycling Competition” to encourage active participation of primary and secondary schools. Since its launch, it has received overwhelming supports from education sector and over 240 local schools participated in this program. In order to enhance awareness among students, we would like to invite more local schools to join the 10th Canon x McDull Inter-school Ink Cartridge Recycling Competition, to compete for fabulous prizes.
