The Hong Kong Clean Up

Amazingly now in its 17th year, the Hong Kong Clean Up is launching again on 1st December 2017. The community clean-up project is the largest of its kind in the world, engaging over 350,000 participants.

Locals sign up to join other environmental warriors and tackle beaches, parks and streets to fight against the overwhelming tide of plastics destroying our oceans and landscapes.

What an incredible community initiative. When we heard about this fantastic movement, we wanted to celebrate it and maybe get some of our own readers interested in doing something similar in their own communities.

We desperately need to change our thinking away from a throwaway culture. Did you know that over 5 billion disposable cups are manufactured each year? Listen, we get it, disposable cups are very handy but the damage they are bringing our planet majorly outweighs the convenience.

Join us in saying no to single use products, starting with grabbing a stylish BYO cup from us at envirocup. They are made from glass and are BPA free.

Don’t stop there though, reuse anything that comes into your possession. We at Smuggy want to encourage reusing over recycling.
