TAI Wai PLOG w/ HK Ploggers
Mei Lam Sports Centre
13 April 2019 (Saturday)
11:00am - 1:00pm
Hong Kong has a huge trash problem, that is no secret.
Whether you are traversing through a country park, relaxing at a beach or walking through the busy metropolis, it is impossible to avoid waste.
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.
We will be plogging for approximately an hour and a half. We will meet at Mei Lam Sports Centre running around 8km, followed by a short group discussion.
Reusable bags and gloves will be provided, however please feel free to bring your own.

Runners are encouraged to bring reusable bottles for drinks.
