Balashi Brewery encourages customers to recycle their empty bottles for instant cash back (Awg 0.20 per bottle or Awg 4.80 per case). Balashi is the only brewer on Aruba to offer incentivized recycling, with a long-term goal to contribute to Aruba’s overall sustainability efforts. And now, there are some furry friends on the island that are also benefitting from these recycling efforts.
Luna Foundation, a local non-profit made up of a small group of dedicated volunteers, has a mission of positively impacting the lives of Aruba’s street dogs and strays. Creating awareness and educating the island’s youth on animal welfare, the importance of spaying and neutering, and vaccinations is the first priority of the foundation. The foundation has also created a dog sanctuary, offering shelter, food, healthcare, and lots of love to these dogs in need. With no government assistance, Luna Foundation relies on the goodwill of the community and visitors to our island for donations to fund the costs of the sanctuary (currently with 61 dogs and puppies under their care) and their various operating expenses.
Teaming up with Balashi Brewery and further promoting the recycling of Balashi, Chill, and Magic Mango bottles, Luna Foundation is asking the community to donate their bottles for recycling. It’s as easy as a WhatsApp message to +297-561-0706: Luna Foundation will come to you to collect your empties. The money received upon return to Balashi Brewery will help fund Luna Foundation’s efforts.
