Step up anti-litter campaign

AS a nature lover and a dog walker here for many years, I dread the arrival of the Ching Ming festival.

The graves are duly smartened up and undergrowth cut back to reveal breathtaking sea views. But look a little closer in surrounding grassy tree-shaded slopes and ditches, there are piles of bulging plastic bags, mostly filled with environmentally unfriendly rubbish.

If we are to keep Hongkong beautiful we must step up our ad campaigns especially around festival days like Ching Ming and other holidays.

Teach grown-ups to teach children - they are our future.
