1. Recycle, Recycle, Recycle
Absolutely no excuses. Talk to your building, train your helper and kids, and research what your municipality takes. Look for other options for those items your city doesn’t take, such as Call2Recycle’s battery program.
2. Visit a farmers market once a month
Most cities are now full of options! Support the local farming community and enjoy the family-friendly vibe. Make it a Sunday fun day with interesting artisanal products.
3. Adopt Green Mondays
Being vegetarian one day a week saves 84, 000 gallons of water. Green Monday is Hong Kong’s very own Meatless Monday campaign. The social enterprise works tirelessly with the local F&B industry to encourage diners to choose vegetarian options on Mondays. Hundreds of restaurants and catering services have Green Monday menus, including the Hong Kong International Airport F&B outlets! Make sure to support their awesome initiative.
4. Use Public Transport
This one’s easy. If you can’t walk it then choose a tram or a bus, scooter, e-bike, or rideshare.
Speaking of walking, take a hike. Most cities have nearby parks and trails for every level of fitness and for every interest- beach walks, uphill climbs, scenic routes, urban paths. Get your family and friends involved and do a different one every month- good for everyone.
Give back! Raise money, volunteer, visit an old people’s home- there are so many charity to choose from. We have the most comprehensive list for you right here.
8. Support local businesses
Homegrown brands are popping up all over the place. The number of handmade , homegrown, homemade, locally made, artisanal stuff that’s around is a testament to the spirit of change. Use our Green Queen Guide to Hong Kong to find local choices for everything here in Hong Kong, or explore lists in your town to support local.
