Today, especially in Hong Kong, waste is a huge problem. It affects every part of our environment, from our waterways to our atmosphere, our grassy fields to our forests, our plants to our people. If we want to make an impact in the fight against waste and pollution, one of the best things we can do is to educate our children to reduce, reuse and recycle or upcycle in the case of our AISHK Environment Committee.
This past week we have been busy collecting and sorting pre-loved children’s clothing from our generous community. We collected over 400 children’ s T-shirts, 100 girls dresses, 140 pairs of shorts, jumpers, long pants, baby clothes, many soaps and 150 toothbrushes. There were 9 big boxes packed and ready to go. Three large boxes will be lovingly shipped to Hope for Cambodian Children and the remaining boxes will go to St Stephen’s and Crossroads for distribution amongst the many destitute families living in Hong Kong.
The pre-loved children’s clothing donations will breathe new life and be loved and worn by another child, which is great for our environment. A big thank you to everyone who donated to this project. Later next term we will be calling for donations again.
