Importance of Recycling
As a manufacturer of green products, Hokwang must not only emphasize the importance of recycling, but also ensure our products have all passed WEEE testing. This means our products can be recycled and reused, and we are proud to say our recycle and reuse rates are over 90%.
In addition to the product itself, we do our best to recycle while manufacturing in a factory that has received ISO-14001 certification (Environmental Management System). Anyone who has visited our facilities can attest to the organization and ability to control a clean assembly line that recycles cans, bottles, paper, carton boxes and even rain! Our factory is located on a hill where it is very practical to collect and store rainwater for plumbing and irrigation.
Hokwang works hard to draw attention to the dire need for sustainable living. We achieved this goal to great ends by sponsoring a documentary called “Beyond Beauty-Taiwan from Above” and providing other necessary resources to help the movie production. This documentary not only shows the beauty of Taiwan but also reminds people that natural disaster and today’s style of living are gradually destroying the beautiful island.
After the documentary hit theaters, Hokwang funded several showings inviting the entire Hokwang team and all their family members as well as elementary school students from remote districts to watch this documentary. Our primary purpose for these invitations was to plant the need to care for the environment in the children’s minds.
