Green Monday organized the “Love Our Planet 4.22 Whole City Goes Green Monday" ceremony on 22nd April at C.C.C. Heep Woh Primary School (Cheung Sha Wan).
Our guest of honour, Ms. Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, GBS, JP, pointed out that everyone played a part in the reduction of carbon emission.
To raise awareness of global warming, Green Monday joined hands with mission partner Convoy Group to form the first Hong Kong team for North Pole Marathon.
As told by Mr. David Yeung, Co-founder of Green Monday, if every Hong Kong citizen goes meatless one day a week, the annual accumulative carbon emission reduction will be equivalent to the carbon uptake of over 65 million trees for one year.
Since April, over 350 thousand primary and secondary school students could participate in Green Monday School Program via 17 major school caterers. For lunch order on 22nd April, 355 participating schools received hit rate of 50% or above for Green Monday vegetarian menu.
