|BIGGEST CLEAN UP EVER AT SHEK PAIWAN |
|Join Living Lamma and the Hong Kong Hiking Meet Up Group on Saturday25th February for a jolly good clean up! |
Shek Pai Wan on South Lamma should be one of Hong Kong's most scenicspots, though sadly the rubbish brought in on the tide means it often lookslike a landfill site. The picture above shows what we found at a clean upin October. It was only later that a local village head explained that thisused to be the mouth of a river. He used to catch fish here and localswould put up to 5 small boats here during typhoons.
We can make a difference. The more rubbish we collect and the morerubbish people see, the more we can start to educate people to beresponsible about the waste they produce and discard.
So come along - ALL WELCOME!
