COME, SEE, ACT WITH SLDLP

Together to #BeatPlasticPollution

Saturday (morning) November 7 th 2020 SLDLP 9 “Back to the beach”.

Back to the Beach “ ( November 7th 2020) was a slightly different edition due to the Covid 19 restrictions and rules in force at that time. Therefore, at each location, the organizers have only accepted a limited number of participants.

The emphasis remained on single-use plastics: volunteers joined the 8 selected areas, to clean-up, sort out PET (plastic 1), weigh all trash, and dispose of waste at the collection point designated by the government authorities. PET bottles were sent for recycling whenever possible.

Your Questions

SLDLP means « Sous Les Déchets, La Plage », literally “Under the waste, the beach” and refers to a French old slogan.
SLDLP is an initiative from the French community, supported by the French Consulate in Hong Kong and Macao, which aims to raise awareness about marine pollution and the emergency of reducing waste in our daily life. Together we want to demonstrate that when volunteers of all ages are united under a strong commitment to make a difference, we can have a significant impact. Ultimately we aim to inspire every Hong Kong resident to work on their side to preserve the unique beauty of their natural surroundings.

 

Non profit Society Registered in Hong Kong under Section 5A(1) of the Societies Ordinance CP/LIC/SO/19/61577 

Everybody! We will secure some beaches for easy access by the youngest!

Bring your own gloves if you have some! We will otherwise provide reusable fabric gloves and garbage bags on every beach. Wear good shoes – no flip-flops – and avoid valuable clothing. Bring along a reusable drinking bottle to avoid more plastic on the beach, sun screen and a hat for sunny weather.

SLDLP is a group of volunteers, truly engaged in the environment protection and sensitization, and mobilizing the community’s talents to organise events.

Yes, we do! If you wish to organise a private or corporate beach cleaning, feel free to contact us!
