Lamma Island Hike Cleanup – 14 April

16 Mar


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.

Waste Free HK’s goal is to avoid this scenario as much as possible through urban cleanups, making sure to leave places spotless.

This time you will be doing something different. A group hike across Lamma island, where you will then finish at a beach, clean up and have a little party.

HK Ploggers and collaborating organisations are working with Helper Choice 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 on a clean up event, and many of their members are amazing individuals.

The event will begin at 11:00. There is a ferry at both 10:00 and 10:30 to Yung Shue Wan that takes you directly to the ferry. You will begin with your hike of the island, finishing up at the beach.

Reusable bags and gloves will be provided to anyone who RSVP’s, however please feel free to bring your own.

Time: 11am – 3pm
