Hi DB Green,

Saturday morning we will do a beach cleanup on Nim Shue Wan (the beach on the way to the marina). If we have lots of help we will try to push further round to some other beaches past NSW. What a lovely way to start the weekend! Love to see you there!Beach Cleanup 2018 Jan to June pdf

DB Green Community Meeting TONIGHT!

Posted on October 19th, 2017 in Uncategorized by Tracey

Food Waste Composting in DB

Posted on September 17th, 2017 in Food,Recycling,Uncategorized by Dana Winograd

There has been a food waste composting programme for household organic waste running in DB for the past few years. If you are not part of the programme, please contact your village management office to find out if you can be involved. Every village has at minimum one food waste bin.

The instructions are posted below. The main things to remember are:

  • Do NOT put plastic bags in the bin – throw your food waste in loose
  • Only chicken and fish bones – no other animal bones
  • No liquid – should be as dry as possible
  • No hard pits/shells such as avocado, walnuts, etc
  • No corn cobs or husks

If you put in the wrong materials you risk contaminated the entire lot, especially if you put in a plastic bag.

The bins are collected from the villages between 9am and 12 noon.

Wouldn’t it be great if everyone was composting their food waste!

10 Year Anniversary Beach Cleanup & Family Fun Day! SUNDAY AUG 20TH

Posted on August 15th, 2017 in Beach Clean-up,CAS Activities,Events by Tracey

For 10 years DB Green has been organising beach cleanups in Discovery Bay and we want to celebrate this milestone! Over the years thousands of people have helped remove tens of thousands of kilograms of mostly plastic rubbish from DB beaches, making a huge difference to the safety and the cleanliness of our natural playgrounds.

We want you to come and enjoy a day of action and fun on SUNDAY AUGUST 20TH. After a quick beach cleanup we will have some good old fashioned family fun building sandcastles with Castles Can Fly Hong Kong so don’t forget to bring your buckets and spades! There will be a competition (with great prizes) for the following 3 categories:
1. Best sandcastle using natural decorations
2. Best sandcastle using rubbish from the beach cleanup
3. Best family sandcastle

Schedule for the afternoon:
1-2pm: Beach cleanup
2pm: Sandcastle building competition
4.15-5pm: Prize giving and sausage sizzle

Refreshments will also be available throughout the event from the XTC Gelato cart! Enjoy an ice cream whilst learning more about plastic marine pollution and caring for our beaches as well as finding out ways you could volunteer for DB Green and in your community

RSVP on our FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE to let us know you are coming!

With thanks to LoveTogether DB for sponsoring this community event and the local DB businesses supporting with a prize PizzaExpress Hong Kong 香港愉景灣酒店 Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong and Hemingway’s DB

For the beach cleanup reusable cotton gloves will be supplied as will rubbish bags and buckets, water refills for your reusable water bottle (don’t forget to bring it!) and first aid. There will be basic handwashing facilities there too.

Please make sure you bring sun protection (hat/sunscreen), bug spray and wear closed toe shoes. You are very welcome to bring your own buckets and spades for making sandcastles! The more the better 🙂
