Disgusted by the flotilla of debris choking Hong Kong’s coastal habitats and

water after seeing how much trash is swimming with you?

Why not do something about it, and have fun while you're at it?

 

The 16th Annual Hong Kong Cleanup Challenge, taking place September

1st through December 1st, is NOW OPEN officially for registrations!

 

And it couldn't come at a better time! With recent local and international news

city, by signing up a team at our new-improved website HKcleanup.org!

ABOUT THE HONG KONG CLEANUP CHALLENGE

Ecozine’s Hong Kong Cleanup Challenge is the region’s largest event of its kind,

but it’s also part of something much bigger! As the official Hong Kong coordinator

for Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), we’re proud to be

part of a global movement for cleaner seas. Your volunteer data helps create

the Ocean Trash Index – the world's largest item-by-item, location-by-location

annual report of coastal and shoreline debris.

 

More than 8 million kg of trash—equal to the weight of over 100 Boeing 737s—

was collected by nearly 800,000 volunteers last year, including 5 million pieces of

trash collected right here in Hong Kong, by a record 75,623 local participants!

Please check out our 2015 Report for details!

Thanks to people like you, the tide is changing.
