Make a vegetarian dish
Eating less meat can lower your carbon and water footprint. Multiply your positive impact by sharing the recipe with your friends and family!
Take shorter showers
The average Hong Kong person uses 130 liters of fresh water a day, making us some of the world’s highest urban water consumers. Shorter showers are also more energy-efficient.
Choose safer sunscreens
Many common sunscreens contain chemicals that can cause coral to bleach and die, hurt fish fertility, and harm young dolphins. You can also protect yourself with swim shirts and rash guards!
Lend a helping hand
There’s always work to be done. Do you want to help restore Hong Kong’s reefs? Sign up for emails so we can let you know about upcoming opportunities to get involved when restrictions allow.
Reduce and re-use
The average Hong Kong person sends over 1.5 kg of municipal solid waste to landfills every single day. Little actions every day can mount to a lot. Remember to bring your own water bottle, shopping bag and reusable cutlery. You never know when you’ll need it.
Take public transport
Enjoy people watching on the MTR. Feel the breeze from the Hong Kong tram. Skipping a taxi ride will reduce your carbon footprint.
Don’t stop after Earth Day
Make every day Earth Day. Make positive change by inspiring others, one action at a time.
