Rethink Plastic Bags Campaign 不想再「膠」
Have you ever wondered...
“How many plastic/recycled bags you get in a normal week?
How to encourage people use recycled bags rather than accepting free plastic bags”?
By organising this "Rethink Plastic Bags Campagin", JCEIA is aiming to increase the awareness of the harmful effects of plastic bags to our environment and to encourage passers-by to "Rethink" the urge for plastic bags consumption. This campagin is comprised with three stages, stage 1 "Bag Back", stage 2 "What is in your bag?" photo contest, and stage 3 "Plastic Bag Art Creation and Exhibition".

Our first Rethink Plastic Bag Campagin event - Bag Back was held on 27th July, 2013, with the hlep of 50 volunteers we have exchanged more than 500 plastics bags to resable cloth bags with the passers-by in Mong Kok.
