On July 13th, 2013, Green Monday hosted the first “Green Monday Carnival” at Kowloon Bay International Trade & Exhibition Centre. The purpose of the carnival was to advocate green living to the general public in a fun and inspiring way.
The Carnival event had more than 30 booths present, providing environmental education, fun activities, green products and unique vegetarian foods. As well, there were 4 activity areas with special themes, including “BOCHK”, “”, “” and “”.
Green Monday Ambassadors C AllStar and Ms. Ankie Beilke were present at the Carnival. C AllStar showcased their singing talents while Ms. Ankie Beilke shared some tips on her 20 years of vegetarian experience. The crowd definitely had a lot of fun while gaining valuable tips on green healthy living.
Ms. Janis Chan, Green Monday Executive Director, who was one of the members of the Arctic Marathon, shared her experience in the Arctic and wanted to raise awareness on global warming in addition to actively promote a green lifestyle.
As the first Carnival event, we want the general public to be more aware and knowledgeable of green living as well as the environmental and health impact of going green.
