Films 4 Change in DB

Posted on May 8th, 2016 in DB Green Matters,Events,Movie Reviews by Angie Bucu

Welcome to our first “Films 4 Change” Movie Night in Discovery Bay. Supported by DB Green and hosted at Zaks (upstairs). Please indicate your attendance on our events page here.

Our first movie is Just Eat it: A food waste story.

food waste
“Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of food waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly shocking.”
For more on the film: http://www.foodwastemovie.com/

Join us for this entertaining yet important film about the food waste issues. After the film you will have a chance to hear about what is happening in Hong Kong regarding food waste issues and what one of HK’s foremost food waste charities, Feeding Hong Kong,  is doing to help feed those in need whilst reducing food waste going to landfill.

Films 4 Change Movie Nights in DB will be a monthly event showcasing documentary films with important and relevant themes on the environment, sustainability and health.

As a community event we want to encourage conversation and action within the community and how we can all make a difference or be a part of the change. To facilitate this discussion we will invite a guest expert to talk to the audience about the issue as it relates to Hong Kong.

Flea Market Sunday – Can you help?

Posted on January 15th, 2016 in Events by Tracey

The first of DB’s flea markets for 2016 is on this Sunday from 12-5pm in the main plaza. Fingers crossed for no rain!

We are looking for help to set up the stall, sell goods and pack up at the end of the day.
Can you spare a couple of hours or help with a golf buggy? Please leave a message with Tracey (62223244) via What’s App if you can help.

The flea markets are a great way to reuse, rehome, reduce. There are thousands of books, clothes, toys, household goods and more.

DB Green accepts good quality donations to sell, with all money raised going to the tree planting program, beach cleanups or other environmental events in DB.

Thanks,
DB Green Team

2016 Beach Cleanup Schedule

Posted on January 14th, 2016 in Beach Clean-up by Tracey

2016 Beach Cleanups_edited-1

The DB Green community beach cleanup program enables individuals, families, community groups and school students the ability to make a positive difference to the beaches and sea. Whether you want to participate because it is a fun, social and meaningful way to spend time with family and friends or you want a bit of purposeful exercise, or for students to help fulfil extracurricular requirements, we welcome your help and support.

DB Green supplies washable and reusable cotton gloves (you are also welcome to bring your own), buckets for collecting, trash bags (for landfill and for recycling), water bottle refills and first aid.

We ask that you wear appropriate clothing for the weather and shoes that protect your feet (there are hazards – particularly broken glass) and a full reusable water bottle.

If a school group would like to participate in one of the scheduled beach cleanups please contact dana (at) plasticfreeseas.org to arrange. *

If your company would like to participate in a beach cleanup please contact tracey (at) plasticfreeseas.org to arrange a tailor made program to suit your needs. *

Looking forward to seeing you on the beaches in 2016!

PS If you can’t make these dates you can always go to a beach anytime that suits you and do a mini clean – every effort counts!

* when using the above email addresses, please replace the (at) with @ the above is written to avoid spam being sent to these email addresses. We have enough rubbish to get rid of from the beaches, we don’t need it filling our inboxes too!
