Cap collection

The Belgian guide dog federation came up with an idea to raise money for guide dogs while at the same time reducing the pile of waste.

It is called ‘dopjesactie’, literally translated it means ‘cap action’. They encourage people to collect the caps from plastic bottles. These caps will be sold to recycling companies who recycle it to make plastic pallets.

I think this is a good idea that is easy to implement by everyone. It does not require a lot of effort since the waste already has to be sorted in Belgium and it is something that everyone can do.

If you want to join them, you can find more information on their (Dutch or French) website.
