Hong Kong does not top greenest city lists very often. But during the past few days, the ever-practical and respectfully ecological mindset of Hong Kong people has become inspiringly apparent. The people of Asia’s world city have captured the minds and won the hearts of millions around the world who are watching as they peacefully protest in the name of democracy, all the while making sure they make minimal mess and continue to recycle. And to think most of this drive for sustainability during a tense time is being orchestrated by students! The #UmbrellaRevolution is sure to earn top billing as the world’s greenest protests.
Volunteers carry recycling garbage bags, helping to collect what can be recycled. Whilst helping, we were told to request that protesters do the separation themselves as this was an opportunity for ecological education! The self-service recycling areas are another example of this effort to impart knowledge.
