If you are having trouble finding a sustainable way to dispose of all the mooncake boxes that you’ve collected over the Mid-Autumn Festival, Taikoo Place offers a solution. Swire Properties is collaborating with the Maxim’s Group again this year to host Project Green Moon. At selected properties including Taikoo Place there will be collection boxes for recycling your mooncake boxes and all proceeds will be donated to the Salvation Army for the good cause in supporting the less privileged. In addition, if you have extra mooncakes that are in good condition and individually packed, share the joy of the festival and donate them to someone in need at the adjacent Food Angel collection box.
