Pilot Scheme on Community Shopping Bags Sharing


Joining hand with Environmental Campaign Committee, The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups sets up the collection points for “Pilot Scheme on Community Shopping Bags Sharing” in our 3 Youth S.P.O.Ts -Jockey Club Ping Shek Youth S.P.O.T., Jockey Club Verbena Youth S.P.O.T. and Tsuen King Youth S.P.O.T. to raise the awareness of reusing and sharing the shopping bags, further reduce the use of plastic bags and protect our environment.
