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 🙂

EMERGENCY beach cleanups, Saturday 10-12 and 2-4pm

Posted on July 7th, 2016 in Air and Water Quality,Beach Clean-up,Events by Kate Wade

It’s been in the news and on various facebooks- the terrible state of beaches all over Hong Kong!

Can you help Saturday?? We’ve got 2 options. Nim Shue Wan (the beach near the ferry to Mui Wo?) from10-12. Or at North Plaza beach in the afternoon? It took 40 mins the other day and my family of 5 collected 10 bags. So even if you can fill one or 2 bags our beaches would be so happy! Not to mention the poor fish swimming in this muck. The most opportune time to remove rubbish from the ocean is when it is coughed up on to the shore before it gets swept away again. So let’s hope we can get as much as we can!!

Time:

  • 10am 12 noon Nim Shue Wan beach (near Mui Wo ferry pier)
  • 2pm-4pm Sam Pak Wan (North Plaza beach)

Bring: your own NON DISPOSABLE refillable water bottle, insect repellent and sunscreen. And bring lots of friends and family!

Spread the word!

Kate

For those of you who can’t make it tomorrow I plan to leave plastic bags at each location so you can pick up rubbish when you can. Here’s a family I found on the beach this morning picking up rubbish!

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!

Hi there,

Bring the usual: Refillable water bottle, sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or muddy, sunscreen and insect repellent and a hat (or we have a cap for you!)

Why not bring a snack to share on the clean beach afterwards! I’ll be bringing some left over party treats from my daughters birthday party in the  morning…. nothing that’s good for you though! Oh.. maybe some fruit…..

Love to see you there!

CHEERS,

Kate
