About Green Hour

Group of volunteers plogging

We only have one planet. It is up to us to do what we can to protect it.

With this in mind, Green Hour was established in 2018 to raise the awareness in the community of the importance of environmental protection.

With over 80 cleanups, 100+ weekly Bun Run's fighting food waste as well as school and corporate partnerships, Green Hour has managed to make a positive impact in Hong Kong.

Macey Lee

Macey Lee

Bun Run Leader

"Joining the Bun Run has helped me to learn more about my community and food waste, build a routine to do exercise. I also unexpectedly relieve stress from being around familiar faces when collecting and distributing the surplus bread and cakes. It is lovely to build that connection in the neighbourhood."


"I have joined the Bun Run since Sep 2021. With the passion to share such a good experience to others, I started to lead my own route since 2022."

Raymond Calachan

Raymond Calachan

Clean-up Coordinator

Raymond has joined the team as a volunteer through one of the team's many beach cleanups since 2022.

Since then, He has helped lead  several events with us out of his desire to help bring more awareness in nurturing the environment that surrounds us.

He also runs his own hiking and socials group, wherein he organises and coordinate hike events throughout Hong Kong. It's usually through hiking trails where he wants to spend his weekends along with people who are either new or experienced in hiking.

David Cheung

There isn't a bad thing that can be said about David. He has a huge heart and always has time to get involved! Aside from Bun Runs, you can often find David hanging out at the Africa Centre or hiking up in the mountains somewhere!

David has been joining Green Hour for our Bun Runs for almost 2 years, and hopefully many more to come!!

Natalie & Nelson

Bun Run Leaders

Natalie and Nelson joined the bun run in 2022 to combat food waste by collecting unsold pastries from bakeries and distributing to those in need.

They lead our Jordan/Olympic bun run routes. Together with our volunteers, they have reduced food waste by collecting hundreds of unsold pastries in our partner bakeries every week.

 

Through distributing the pastries, they have built a deep relationship with the Jordan/Olympic community through weekly visits and providing food which is hard to access for them.

 

Come and join them to explore more!

Lottie Ho

Bun Run Leader

From her first time joining a Bun Run event, Lottie was already committed to joining on a regular basis. While initially only in a volunteer capacity, she quickly began offering to help with collection near her home in Kwun Tong.

The elderly that she encounters week after week, as well as the staff in the bakeries, have come to know her quite well and she is no doubt welcomed with a huge smile when they see her. How can you not? Lottie is a superhero!
