Dear Sustainability Heroes,

You are invited for a half-day of environmental action that I hope will return to taking place on the last Saturday of each month.

The plan involves cleaning up Tung Wan Tsai (Coral Beach) over on Cheung Chau. Since it is a non-gazetted beach, no regular cleaning is undertaken there by government workers. This beach also has the misfortune of the tides regularly transporting laap sap (garbage) onto its shores. So it really could do with some tender loving care from us.

Getting to and out of Tung Wan Tsai (Coral Beach) requires a bit of a hike -- but that should not pose a problem for physically healthy adults. After 2-3 hours (max) of clean-up work, we will hike back to civilisation and have lunch together at one of Cheung Chau's delicious eateries as a reward for our efforts.

Meeting point:

In front of the McDonald's near Cheung Chau Pier, at 10am. (Aim to take the 9am Ordinary Ferry from Central Pier Number 5.)

What to bring/wear:

• closed shoes

• water (at least 1 litre is recommended)

• hat and shades/sunscreen, if sunny weather is forecast

• rain gear, if rain is forecast

• your smile

I will provide trash bags and cloth gloves. Please feel free to bring your own rubber gloves and implements such as trowels. The government will pick up the filled trash bags from the beach (above the shoreline) after we are done.

If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to post them below.
