背景 / Background:
此計劃由本會與Green Dragons HK協辦，以赤柱作為焦點地區，打造一個可持續的綠色社區，為建設美好香港出一分力。計劃邀請當地餐廳商戶成為「走塑」的綠色食肆，並鼓勵消費者支持「可持續消費」，減少使用一次性塑膠，從而保護海洋生態環境。
The project is co-led by the Jane Goodall Institute (HK) and Green Dragons HK. It targets Stanley community as a focus area which will be developed into a green and sustainable community in Hong Kong. The project invites local restaurants in Stanley to join our Plastic Reduction network to become green restaurants and encourages consumers to support sustainable consumerism by reducing the disposable plastics. Ultimately, the ocean ecosystem can be protected.

2. 端午龍舟節塑膠回收行動 Dragon Boat Festival Plastic Collection Campaign
三天活動期間，我們的義工團隊聯同合作伙伴V Cycle和Gree Dragons HK 聚集於赤柱中心—赤柱海濱，向公眾分享正確回收膠樽的方法。我們一共收集超過600個膠樽，它們將被送往V Cycle，以支持一項「拾樽背後• 關懷扶貧」 的回收及升級再造項目。
During the Dragon Boat Festival in Stanley from 16th June to 18th June 2018, our dedicated team of 15 volunteers who were our Plastic Reduction Ambassadors set out to engage the public on responsible plastic usage and saying “No” to single-use plastics.
With our team of Plastic Reduction Ambassadors, we placed ourselves in the heart of Stanley waterfront for the three-day events, speaking to the public and sharing with them the proper ways to recycle water bottles with our partners V Cycle and Green Dragons HK. We managed to retrieve over 600 bottles for repurposing into reusable tote bags and the retrieved bottles would be upcycled by V Cycle in their project named “10 Tonnes PET Bottles Collection Challenge”.
By encouraging visitors and residents to rethink the negative impact of using single-use plastics, we joined hand to contribute everyone’s effort to build an eco-friendly community in Stanley.
In the future, we hope to spread the momentum and meaningful work to other districts in Hong Kong. Please join us if you care!
