Turn Your Recyclable Items Into Donations to ALF!

"On 1 November 2023, Victoria’s container deposit scheme, CDS Vic, commenced. The scheme rewards Victorians with a 10-cent refund for every eligible can, carton, and bottle they return.

ALF is proud to announce that we are a part of and on the CDS Vic system. So now you can select Australia Light Foundation directly on your local recycling container system by typing in Australia Light Foundation, where the 10-cent return from your recycling will go directly to the Australia Light Foundation as a humble donation. The foundation will use this contribution to improve and develop a better place for you and your family.

This is a beautiful initiative, and we believe that now you can turn your recyclable bottles, which we usually just throw away, into an ongoing charity. We all know the hadith about Sadaqah Jariyah, where the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, 'When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); knowledge that is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased).' [Hadith, Sahih Muslim]

This initiative is beautiful for us to partake in, as we are looking after our environment and making our home a cleaner place!"
