  • Beach Cleaning 2022

    On November 12, the Life Jungle Association and KOREAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE carried out a beach cleaning activity in Sok Kwu Wan, Lamma Island. On that day, more than hundred of Korean living in Hong Kong came to participate in this meaningful event , we are also very happy and honored to get support from the Korean consulate in Hong Kong, as well as various Korean organizations! We would like to express our deepest appreciation to all!! In just a few hours of beach cleaning, we have collected more than 300 kg of marine debris, most of which are plastic bottles, plastic bottle caps, plastic boxes and styrofoam pellets for daily use. . . We really hope that everyone can do reflection together: Before every consumption, we can think about 2 questions: 1. "Do you need it?" 2. "Do you have it already?" One small step can make big change to the environment. Let’s all help save the ocean!
