Green Features of re Kiosk
re Kiosk is designed and constructed in a sustainable manner. We are also growing a wide variety of plants, turning the spot into a mini garden with beautiful greenery scene. With sustainability at the heart of the design, it reinforces HKU’s institutional vision, commitments, and goals into all aspects of the University’s facilities, operations and activities.
Plants you may find on the vertical wall, click to see their names.
Recycle moreMore types of recyclables will be collected at the new kiosk, such as rechargeable batteries, and different types of plastics other than just bottles and beverage cartons
