Beach Cleanup SAT 13th JUNE, 1-4pm

Posted on June 12th, 2015 in Beach Clean-up,Events by Kate Wade

Hi there,

It’s our last beach cleanup of the school year this Saturday afternoon, 13th June, at Nim Shue Wan- 1-4pm. That’s the beach on the way to the Marina club. Near where you catch the ferry to Mui Wo or Peng Chau.

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

Hi DB Green,

Just a wee reminder this Saturday (7th Feb) we have our first beach cleanup of the year. Nim Shue Wan is the beach near where you take the ferry to Mui Wo or Peng Chau (if you’re new to DB). Head towards the Marina.

The DB Green beach cleanups are for individuals, families, community groups and school students to make a positive difference to the beaches and sea. Everyone is welcome! We will supply washable and reusable cotton gloves (you are also welcome to bring your own), trash bags (for landfill and for recycling), water bottle refills and first aid.

Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather and shoes that protect your feet. Bring your own refillable water bottle please (not single use disposable water bottles- we hate those!), sunscreen and insect repellent. See you on the beach!

Hope to see you there!

BEACH CLEANUP SATURDAY- Spread the word!

Posted on October 6th, 2014 in Beach Clean-up,Events by Kate Wade

Hi there!

We have a beach cleanup this Saturday at Sam Pak Wan (North Plaza Beach) 1pm-4pm and we want a HUUUUGGGEE turnout so please spread the word by all means possible.

-Forward on this poster to all your friends and family in Hong Kong, put it on your Facebook page, tell your schools, clubs and gym!

-Print out the poster and put it on your golf cart or give a copy to your favourite restaurant or retail outlet or anywhere you frequent.

-Whats App it, Twitter it or (or is that tweet it) or whatever else is out there in the world of communications these days that I haven’t kept up with.

LET PEOPLE KNOW and come down and help clean up this beautiful but currently dreadfully littered beach!

I will try to post some photos of the state of the beach later in the week. It was totally destroyed by the last typhoon that went through and really needs our help- plus the nurdles have reemerged- possibly from sacks that were previously not found from the nurdle disaster in 2012 but have now found there way to the surface!

HELP! It’s an SOS call! Or perhaps an SOB (Save Our Beach) call!

Hope to see you there this Saturdayplease bring plenty of water in your refillable water bottles, sturdy footwear, insect repellent, sunscreen and friends and family. If you have a rake or can get hold of one by Saturday please bring along too.

Thanks! Now spread the word!

Kate
