Supporting beach cleanup
Plastic waste accounts for more than 20% of daily municipal solid waste in Hong Kong. With an aim to prevent the plastic waste from entering the environment, 22 colleagues from ExxonMobil Hong Kong joined a #OneTonneLess beach cleanup event initiated by A Plastic Ocean (APO) on November 13. The event was supported by Hong Kong Retail.
After climbing up and down the long and steep stairway from Sam Mun Tsai, our colleagues rolled up their sleeves and started picking up different kinds of plastic waste such as bottles, slippers, masks and fishing tools on the Ma Shi Chau Beach. Eventually, hard work paid off with a total of 40 kg waste collected. A huge thanks to APO for their efforts and also to our colleagues for their support and participation in this meaningful event!
