Description

After having success around the world, it's time for plastic-obsessed Hong Kong to feel the effects of a Plastic Attack!

Stores across Hong Kong are not bowing to pressure to drastically reduce the amount of unnecessary plastic in their stores. Products are wrapped in huge swathes of plastic, and enough is enough. The goal is to show them that we're not messing around and we, as the consumer, demand change.

Many of us have sent emails to ParknShop, CitySuper, Wellcome etc. and have received a generic template for a response. This simply isn't good enough and these large chains need to be held accountable for their awful practices.

How many times have you seen apples wrapped individually in multiple layers of plastic and polystyrene packaging? Why do they feel it is necessary to put frozen products into separate plastic bags at the till? It's just not acceptable and something needs to be done.

A specific store that we will focus on has yet to be decided, but they have have been notified of our intentions. The goal is to purchase products as usual and then remove any packaging there and then, for the store to deal with.

Wherever you live in Hong Kong, you are free to take part. Please take photos of yourself during the event and share them here! Let's make our voices heard!

PLEASE READ

It is important to remember that the policies implemented by supermarkets are not the fault of the store employees or managers, and therefore the utmost respect should be paid during the event. It is important that we respect those working in the store, and make sure that anything we leave behind isn't too difficult for the staff to remove from the storefront.

Coinciding with the event, there will be a collection point for any food to donate towards local charity ImpactHK. ImpactHK is a fantastic organisation and we believe that it is important to not just focus on the negative, but also bring something positive out of this experience. More information on this will follow shortly.

In the meantime, please share this amongst your friends so that we can drum up as much support as possible and make ourselves heard loud and clear!

在世界各地取得成功之後,現在是充斥塑料的香港感受塑料攻擊的時候了!

百佳為香港最大的連鎖店之一,當中有大量產品不必要地包裝在大片塑料之中。我們不會搞亂超級市場,我們的目標是向他們展示作為消費者,我們需要變化。

我們當中已有許多人發電子郵件給百佳,並收到模板般的回覆。但這是不足夠的,百佳需要為其當中糟糕的消售方式負責。

你有多少次看到蘋果單獨包裝在多層塑料和聚苯乙烯之中?為什麼他們覺得有必要把冷凍食品放入單獨的塑料袋裡?這是不可接受的,我們需要做些事情。

我們將訪問的具體商店尚未確定,但百佳已收到我們的意向。 我們的目標是一如往常地購買產品,然後去除那產品上的任何包裝,然後供商店處理。

請閱讀

重要的是要記住,超市所實施的政策並不是店員或店經理的錯,因此應在活動期間給予他們最大的尊重。 重要的是,我們尊重店內所以工作人員,並確保任何我們留下的東西不會太難從店面中清除。

以符合本次活動目標,活動後將有一個收集點將食物捐贈給本地慈善機構ImpactHK。 ImpactHK是一個出色的組織,我們相信重要的不僅是負面情況受到關注,而且更要從這種體驗中帶出正面及積極的東西。有關這方面的資訊即將推出。

同時,請在你的朋友中分享這些信息,以便我們盡可能得到更多支持,讓我們能夠以正視聽。
