Over 150 teams have registered for the Hong Kong Cleanup's 15th Anniversary Challenge this year - and there's stil a month left to go! Have you gotten involved yet?
With over 8 million tonnes of plastic entering the ocean every year, and China being the #1 cuplrit, the Earth (and especially Hong Kong) needs your help! Why not join over 1,000 companies and schools, representing over 200,000 participants, in cleaning up our beaches, urban areas, and country trails!
 
Join the growing movement to clean up Hong Kong and protect our environment. It's easy! Here are a few ways:

1. SIGN UP A TEAM!
Due to popular demand, we’ve extended the cleanup challenge to December 1st! What does this mean? MORE time to get involved and organize a beach, country park or urban cleanup event!
Take action:
- Anyone can register a team for the Cleanup Challenge and organize a cleanup for their company, school or family, now until November 1st!
- Join a FREE learning Tuesday 27th October or Monday 16th of November, to learn more! Email info@hkcleanup.org to register or learn more.
 
2. START FUNDRAISING!
Our supporters now have the opportunity to make a major impact by raising money for our charity partner, The Nature Conservancy. The donations received will help save our marine environments, preserve our fresh water, and restore our forests.
Take action:
- Visit our page on Justgiving.com to make a donation or invite your friends and colleagues to raise money for nature conservation.
 
3. HELP SPREAD THE LOVE!
Studies suggest that engaging 5% of a population is the critical 'tipping point' toward long-lasting behavioral change. So we're going for it! This ambitious 15th anniversary goal is a BIG one, and we need your help to achieve it!
Take action:
- Forward this email to friends, family, and colleagues - get them involved too!
- Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram - and hashtag #HKcleanup and #LetsWorkTogether to show support!
 
4. JOIN THE ZERO WASTE CORPORATE CHALLENGE!
January 2016 will see the launch of a brand new program for companies, the Zero Waste Corporate Challenge (ZWCC). Corporate members will have the opportunity to set and achieve waste reduction goals over a two-year filly supported certification process, with consulting from local and global zero waste experts and achieve measurable, concrete steps!
Take action:
- Interested companies can request details by calling 2868 5585 or emailing ZWCC@ecozine.com
- Deadline for applications is November 13th
 
HAVE YOU SEEN IT?
This year's Hong Kong Cleanup campaign, designed by Ogilvy&Mather, has been all over the city in newspapers, magazines, social media - and a 16-metre billboard above Eastern Harbour Tunnel! Featuring dozens of our real community members, it delivers the key message "Let's Work Together." Watch out for it, and share it with friends!
 
We are so grateful for each organization and person in our community; thank you for everything you do. Please sign up, donate, fundraise and spread the word. Together, we CAN make a difference.
