Leftover food a serious problem

Hong Kong has a serious problem with leftover food. More than 3,000 tonnes of food are wasted every day.

We must stop this wastage. People order too much food at restaurants. We should encourage them to change this behaviour.

For example, restaurants can offer discounts to customers who finish all their food.

Be considerate and don't throw things out the window

Throwing things out the window is bad, irresponsible behaviour. Moreover, it can kill innocent people. Two people were injured by scissors thrown out of buildings last week.

In my housing estate, many selfish people throw things out the window, including tissue, leftover food and newspapers.
