Join us on Wednesdays for our 'Bun Runs'!

Updated: Apr 2

Green Hour has teamed up with Maxim's Cakes and arome to help fight food waste in Hong Kong.


According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted. [1]

Hong Kong is no different to the rest of the world, an approximate 3,649 tonnes per day (roughly 1.33 million tonnes per year), or 34% of the daily MSW* going to landfill. [2]


As an organisation working to fight waste across the city, we would be crazy to ignore such huge issue. It is for this reason we are now organising weekly Bun Runs every Wednesday evening from 6:45 pm - 9:30 pm



Every Wednesday we will run across the Central & Western District in two teams, bun runners and ploggers. The reason behind this is that for team members whose bakeries do not have bread available, there is still something to do in collecting rubbish along the way!

Want to know more? Feel free to email us or sign up for the next event!


MSW* = Municipal Solid Waste
