No Straw Partners
We are delighted to have become a “No Straw Partner” of the “No Straw Campaign” presented by Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong (OPCFHK), to promote cleaning the marine environment.
Hong Kong’s unsustainable and disposable lifestyle is having a serious negative impact on the marine environment. Every year, countless marine creatures suffer from intestinal blockage, malnutrition, and even death after mistakenly ingesting plastic disposables. Through promoting a straw-less lifestyle as the first step, we believe that each and every one of us can work together to alleviate the pressure on our marine creatures.
The OPCFHK launched “No Straw Day” in 2017 with over 600 restaurants, corporates, primary and secondary schools, and universities giving support. The “No Straw Campaign” for 2018 promotes a straw-less and plastic-free lifestyle.
The Club has phrased put plastic straws in all restaurants, banquets and meetings. Paper straws are being used in their place, and only upon request. We strive to take a lead in preserving the environment, and your support is both crucial and very much appreciated.
