The name ‘CAREton’ is a combination of the word ‘CARE’ and ‘CARTON’. The CAREton Project is a Used Beverage Cartons recycling campaign by MILO® UHT and Tetra Pak that transforms drink packs into ‘green’ roofing tiles and panel boards for those in need. It aims to raise awareness on recycling and how it benefits the environment as well as the communities around them.
LET'S START TODAY:
Insert after drinking
Flip the sides up
Flap the bottom
Then, send to collection centres!
And that’s how you can help create a greener environment while helping those in need! Easy right? Start today!
It is a recycling awareness campaign that aims to collect as many used cartons to be recycled into roofs that will be donated to the Orang Asli communities through the collaboration with Epic Homes. We hope that this campaign would be able to promote an environmental friendly society while lending a helping hand to those in need.
All recycled MILO® UHT drink packs will be collected under the CAREton Collection Partners network. Then, the drink packs will be sent to the recycling center to be processed into Poly Aluminium (PolyAl) panel boards and roofing tiles. In the seven years that the CAREton Project has been running, over 60 million drink packs have been collected with enough materials to build 150 homes through beneficiary Epic Homes and other community projects.
MILO® UHT drink packs are made up of 75% paper, 20% plastic, and 5% aluminum. All these materials are 100% recyclable. The drink packs will be sent to the SHA Paper Mill where they go through the hydra-pulping process to extract fibre for paper making and the PolyAl component will be sent to KPT Recycle Sdn Bhd to be processed into panel boards and roofing tiles.
The roofing tiles developed from the recycled MILO® UHT drink packs has a few structural and technical benefits such as having good heat resistance qualities along with good sound proof, water proof and heat insulation.
Other than the effort to preserve our environment, the CAREton project aims to aid in providing a roof over the heads for those in need. Join us in our efforts today!
