Hong Kong is home to over two hundred islands, dozens of beaches and more than 400 square kilometres of country parks. For centuries the city has been known as one of the major ports in Asia, however something other than ships is landing on Hong Kong’s beaches in 2020.
Plastic pollution is plaguing beaches across the world and Hong Kong is no different. Year after year our reliance on plastics is growing, as is the amount of waste winding up on our beautiful shores.
As well as this, a lack of understanding from some in society of the importance of waste management has lead to areas that are much closer to home, hiking paths and even the streets we walk down every day, experience the same pollution problems.
How to get involved, I hear you ask?
Well over the coming year we have a series of public events from beach cleanups, to hikes and plogs for you to get stuck into and do your bit for the environment.
Want to become a long-term cleanup partner with Green Hour? As well as personalised cleanup events and workshops, working with us allows you to access all of our media and handouts to be customised to suit your needs, as well as monthly newsletters.
