Things have been quite difficult for Hong Kong over the past few months. With many well aware of the impact SARS had on the city 17 years ago, the recent outbreak of COVID-19 has brought a lot of uncertainty. With schools closing for several months, work from home becoming the new normal as well as rising costs for certain necessities, it's safe to say residents in Hong Kong have had to adjust to a whole new way of living. This has also had an effect on how we run as an organisation. Since January 20th we have put our Bun Runs on hold, paused our plogging temporarily and have scaled back our operations due to an unfortunate lack of opportunities to get out and about.
Thankfully things have started to pick up again in Hong Kong. People are slowly going back to work, the number of cases is considerably lower than many other places across the world and we are seeing a growing interest in cleanup events. Last month we ran our first major cleanup event of 2020 with a coastal cleanup at a beach near Sham Tseng. Together we managed to collect over 120kg of materials in 2 hours! Not a bad days work! April looks to be a busy month for Green Hour. With multiple corporate events taking place as well as our second major cleanup event of 2020, we have a lot to do and are excited to share everything with you!
