Every sea-goer loves clean seas and a thriving and vibrant marine ecosystem. For individuals and businesses working in the marine recreational sector, these conditions support their livelihoods and allow them to thrive. However, marine recreation in Hong Kong faces an unpleasant and unnecessary obstacle: our unclean sea conditions often keep people away from the seashore and out of the water. Things don’t have to be this way though! We believe that the marine sector can play an active role in reducing marine litter and keeping our seas clean. By taking action, you will demonstrate to your members, customers and stakeholders how much you care about our marine environment.
We invite all sea-going recreational groups and businesses, including yacht clubs, water sports associations, dive clubs, boat rental businesses, tourism businesses, fishing clubs and more, to join our one-year programme, ECF Sea Without Litter, to become green mariners and combat marine litter together!
- Raise the awareness of marine users about the marine litter problem and its impacts;
- Enlist marine users to prevent marine litter through following a code of conduct;
- Encourage marine users to sort and recycle litter; and
- Inspire marine user groups to participate in creating a long-term solution.
