ECC Green Lunar New Year Fair (Tsuen Wan) – Shopping Bags Sharing
Green Sense was invited by Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC) and Environmental Protection Department (EPD) to promote waste reduction and recycling at Tsuen Wan Lunar New Year (LNY) Fair. Green Sense will be in charge of such green activities.
A vast amount of materials including marquees, furniture and even unsold goods are left behind and, ultimately, sent to the landfills right after the LNY fair. This is not only a big waste but also putting a heavy burden on landfills. In light of this, Green Sense will introduce a series of waste management and recycling measures in the Tsuen Wan LNY fair, so as to promote the concept of “waste reduction at source”, “clean recycling” and “resources sharing”, as well as to enhance the green awareness of the public and merchants.

Project 1 – Shopping Bags Sharing
Often, LNY fair ended up with a vast amount of waste, including plastic bags. Although the implementation of plastic bag levy has resulted in less use of bags, the prevalence of non-woven bags (also known as environmentally friendly bags), which are made of plastic but often reused, has dropped people’s guard. Therefore, people might accumulate lots of shopping bags at home. In order to promote reusing, recycling and the BYOB culture, we are collecting spare shopping bags from the public to be placed at the Shopping Bags Sharing Stations at the Tsuen Wan LNY Fair for all to use.
We are now inviting organizations and institutions to collect clean shopping bags of any kind and material (e g. non-woven fabric or nylon). We will provide an A3-sized poster (left) to be placed at the point of collection. Participating organizations will receive an E-certificate of Appreciation.
Collection period: 8th – 19th Jan 2018
