Lamma Island Hike Cleanup
w/ HK Ploggers & Helper Choice
Sok Kwu Wan Ferry Pier
14 April 2019 (Sunday)
08:20am - 3:00pm
UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO MAY 19TH.
Hong Kong has a huge trash problem, that is no secret.
Unfortunately, a lot of rubbish gets neglected until it is too late. Contrary to what many people may think, even waste in the city centre, through being washed into the gutter, can end up in the ocean.
Our goal is to avoid this scenario as much as possible through urban cleanups, making sure to leave places spotless.
This time we will be doing something different. We have organised a group hike across Lamma island, where we will then finish at a beach, clean up and have a little party.
We are working with HelperChoice for this clean up event, which is an amazing organisation working connecting 200,000+ of employers and domestic helpers directly and ethically. This is not their first time working with us on a clean up event, and many of their members are amazing individuals who I have had the fortune of meeting.
The hike will begin at 09:30 near Sok Kwu Wan Pier. There is a ferry at 08:35 to Sok Kwu Wan, our meeting point. We will begin with a short hike across part of the island, finishing up at the Shek Pai Wan Beach.
For anyone who cannot make it for the 08:35 ferry, we will have some people at Sok Kwu Wan to help guide hikers who arrive on the 10:20 ferry.
Reusable bags and gloves will be provided to anyone who RSVP's, however please feel free to bring your own.
HK Ploggers will adjust the route or the event venue according to the on-site situation and environment
Runners are encouraged to bring reusable bottles for drinks.
